Jidenna Shares 'Bambi,' the New Single From His Upcoming Album

Jidenna drops his latest single "Bambi," which will appear on his forthcoming album, "The Chief."

Following last week's release of his Quavo- assisted trap single "The Let Out," Jidenna returns—switching his style up once again— with his latest single "Bambi."


With its retro-tinged beat and lyrics about love lost, the slow-burner sounds like the stuff your grandparents probably listened to back in the day. It's an unconventional sound that sees the singer flexing his vocal range atop hazy production.

#Bambi - Now available EVERYWHERE. Debut album #TheChief drops 2.17.17 pre-order now. (Link in bio)

He's released a slew of singles in the build up to its release, including the summer smash "Lit Bit More" and "Chief Don't Run."
