Look who’s off hiatus.

Protégé of Janelle Monáe, Jidenna has been largely quiet since his 2017 EP Boomerang. However, that all changes with the announcement of a new album, 85 to Africa (out August 23rd), and two new singles: “Sufi Woman” and “Tribe.”

While “Tribe” is a trap-inflected offering, “Sufi Woman” is the real bop of the two which tapes into Jidenna’s Nigerian/Afrobeat roots.

Listen to both below.
