Jidenna’s Vintage-Style Swagger Returns In ‘Knickers’ Video
It’s been over ten months since Nigerian-American artist Jidenna released “Classic Man,” a catchy track that gained an enviable amount of acclaim and momentum for an as-of-then emerging artist. Although his follow-up single and Janelle Monae collaboration “Yoga” performed relatively well, it didn’t quite reach the heights of “Classic Man.”
Jidenna’s currently working on a proper debut album to follow up 2015’s compilation EP The Eephus, and has already released three singles that will presumably appear on it: “Long Live the Chief,” “Extraordinaire,” and most recently “Knickers.”
Early this morning (January 8), Jidenna shared the official music video for his latest single “Knickers,” directed by Benny Boom and inspired by the artist’s penchant for early 20th century clothing and Big Band/swing music. Watch the clip below.
