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."

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