Jidenna - Little Bit More



Upcoming Jidenna
Written by: Rajada Ealey







Finding his way back in the spotlight, Jidenna, surprises us with a fresh new sound in his newly released song “a little bit more.” Allowing the Caribbean beats and the tropical drums to flow through my ears, I felt like it was truly summer again. Although the 100-degree weather I’m in never failed to let me forget. This song is so fun and energetic and having already reached over a million views in just its firsts days, I definitely think we’ll be hearing a lot more from this Nigerian-American artist.

Jidenna first sent shockwaves through the radio with his hit single “Classic Man” in 2015. That catchy chorus had just about everyone rehearsing the line “I’m a classic man…”. I have to admit; I was definitely one of them. But I also thought to myself, “how classic is this man actually?” We can see in the “classic man” music video how he wears this clean-cut hairstyle and a vintage suit in every scene to portray the role of a classic man. I was convinced that it was just a made-up character, like the ones you see in TV shows. But it turns out this “Classic Man” is indeed a classy man. As he confessed, to Billboard.com, the reasons for his style, I started to think this artist was one of the cooler ones. Jidenna explains that he wanted his style to “invoke the Jim Crow era” and how each song would represent the “the adventures of a classic man.” His vintage style continues in music videos such as “long live the chief,” “knickers,” and most recent “a little bit,” and the adventures continue right along with him. These so-call ‘adventures’ are a great way to explain the change in vibes he alludes with each song, having one strongly influenced by Drake and the next Kendrick Lamar. 

Jidenna definitely likes to mix up his music style, but the new one resonances with me the most. This paradise feel is so fitting for him. I hope to hear more of this style in his upcoming album The Eephus. But if we continue to hear variation in his music style, we know there’s one thing we can always rely on—his wardrobe style. We can always count on this Classic Man to upstage us in appearance. I think I could definitely benefit from some fashion tips from this one.

StarRo

Sitting here on this cool Monday morning on March 28th thinking, how this month flew by. Listening to StarRo’s music, looking around my house wanting to get up and start the spring cleaning ritual my mother instilled in me at an early age. StarRo is a Japanese music mixologist, Guitarist, Keyboardist, Producer based out of Los Angeles. What I like about his music, it has that hint of his Japanese heritage in it. His music is considered downtempo influenced by Straight-ahead jazz, Brazilian, Folk, Acoustic, Soul and Hip Hop. There is one female artist he features on his song “Can't Get You Out Of My Mind” by the name of Alcordo she can sing. StarRo’s mixes are unique and very chill. You can listen to them while you are working or just chilling. Check out StarRo on Streetwise Radio you will become a fan. Happy listening!
