New Song: Jidenna – ‘Little Bit More’

Debut Album ‘Long Live The Chief’ Due Later This Year

jidenna-2016-thatgrapejuice

Jidenna‘s newest jam sees the Wondaland star embrace his West African roots.

The singer, who snatched the attention of the masses with last year’s ‘Classic Man’ has routinely celebrated his Nigerian heritage and continues to do so on new single ‘Little Bit More.’ 

Coated in Naija flavour (thanks to pronounced talking drums), the mid-tempo groove manages to fit in effortlessly in a climate that is more welcoming than to tracks of the “tropical” persuasion. Case in point cuts such as Drake’s ‘Controlla,’ Rihanna’s ‘Work,’ and Justin Bieber’s ‘Sorry.’

Take a listen to the song, which is lifted from the crooner’s debut album ‘Long Live The Chief,’ after the jump…
