Jidenna – Classic Man (Video)

blame it on Meka March 3, 2015

directed by Alan Ferguson, aka Solange’s husband.

This is a more natural-feeling, organic version of what major league record labels and corporation-owned radio stations have essentially been trying to force-feed down our throats in the form of a certain white, female, Australian artist who uses an exaggerated, culturally questionable interpretation of a “Southern” accent. Brooklyn-reared singer/songwriter Jidenna is a part of Janelle Monae’s Wondaland Records (she appears in the video as well), and this song will appear on the label’s compilation project arriving in May.
