Brief About Jidenna.
The sharp dresser, singer, and rapper with geographic connections ranging from Nigeria to U.S.
cities like Oakland, Atlanta, and New York, arrived in 2015 with a hybrid R&B/rap sound he
called ‘Swank’. Jidenna Mobisson the son of pioneering Nigerian scientist and educator –
Oliver Mobisson, cited Nat King Cole, James Brown, and OutKast among his many inspirations.
The Stanford graduate signed to Janelle Monáe’s Wondaland label and debuted with “Classic Man,”
where he delivered boastful, foul-mouthed rhymes and a neat vocal hook over a sparse, street-level
beat. Released in February 2015, the single took a while to gain traction, possibly receiving a nudge
from Monáe’s March-issued “Yoga” (which featured her new signing) and reached the
Billboard Hot 100 three months later. It eventually went double platinum.
The Eephus, a six-track showcase for the Wondaland crew, was
released in August 2015 with the original “Classic Man” and a version featuring Kendrick Lamar.
Mobisson gained further exposure performing his song “Long Live the Chief” on a season one episode of
the Netflix Marvel series Luke Cage in 2016. A Grammy nomination for “Classic Man” and several
stylistically varied singles, including “Little Bit More,” “The Let Out,” and “Bambi,” led to the February
2017 release of The Chief, Mobisson’s first album. The well-received album debuted at number 38 on
the Billboard 200 and peaked at number 16 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. July 2019 saw
Mobisson issue the singles “Tribe” and “Sufi Woman” ahead of the release of his sophomore
full-length effort 85 to Africa, which arrived later that August.
