The Silk Road Tour
Much like the African Diaspora, Jidenna’s music proudly encompasses a wide range of vibes, ranging from Afrobeats, funk, R&B, to hip-hop. This kaleidoscope of cultures, eras, and sounds cemented the GRAMMY® nominated multi-platinum rapper, singer, songwriter, producer, and actor as an international sonic pioneer who quietly paved the way for the 21st century Afropolitan music revival. Regarding rap as a gentleman’s sport, he applies eloquence and global consciousness to the culture with verbal excellence and style. Since 2015, he has distinguished himself as a rare talent equally at home on President Obama’s playlist, the court at the 2020 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, or on-screen in HBO’s Insecure and A Black Lady Sketch Show. Jidenna formally introduced himself with the double-platinum “Classic Man” garnering a GRAMMY® nomination for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.” The song paved the way for his full-length debut, The Chief, which received praise from The New York Times. The 2019 follow-up, 85 To Africa, resonated globally attracting praise from Pitchfork, The Guardian, and Entertainment Weekly. In 2020, Jidenna contributed “Feng Shui” to Insecure: Season 4 soundtrack and “Black Magic Hour” to African On All Sides. Time hailed the latter among “The Best New Songs of July 2020” calling it “entrancing.” Clocking just shy of 1 billion total streams and receiving worldwide acclaim, he continues to elevate the playing field with his new single “Blush” and forthcoming third album.
