Best of 2015: Jidenna

Classic Man is one of my favourite songs of the year, and definitely one of my favourite videos of the year. And it’s too bad Justin Bieber overkilled the word “swag” because Classic Man is pure swag. Classic Man reminds us all how uncool we are…without bitterness.
Jidenna certainly made a statement this year. And he hasn’t even released a full album yet. That’s coming in 2016. But Classic Man has already earned him a Grammy nomination. To celebrate the achievement, he dropped the video for Long Live The Chief last week. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of watching the way he moves but don’t let the moves distract you from his lyrics.
Attached below – the Classic Man video, followed by the Love Live The Chief video, and then Jidenna performing Long Live The Chief for Vevo. Because here you see the flair, the expression. He’s a beautiful performer. Can’t wait to see him live.
