After a month of build-up, Jidenna has finally liberated his sophomore album, ’85 To Africa’. Late last month, the Wondaland signee detailed the album title and its release date with a psychedelic trailer. He also concurrently debuted two singles off the album, “Sufi Woman” and “Tribe”, releasing the video for the latter a few days later. More recently, he shared two new singles, “Sou Sou” and “Zodi” with Mr Eazi, emboldening the potential for a diversely influenced, genre-blending full-length.
Including the four pre-released singles, ’85 To Africa’ contains eleven tracks, mainly produced by close collaborator Nana Kwabena. Joining Mr Eazi on the guest list, Jidenna recruits Afrobeat Acolyte Seun Kuti, DC rapper Goldlink, Ethiopian-American singer Mereba, and R&B/Soul duo St. Beauty. ’85 To Africa’ follows his 2017 debut album, ‘The Chief’, and last year’s EP, ‘Boomerang’.
