Jidenna's New Album Is Coming Sooner Than You Think

Jidenna announces his album's release date and shares new single "The Let Out," featuring Quavo of rap group Migos.

After a hit single, countless other jams and appearances in some of our favorite TV shows. Nigerian singer and rapper, Jidenna, has finally announced that his long-awaited debut album The Chief will be dropping on February 17.


Along with the news of the album's release, he shared his latest single "The Let Out" featuring Migos MC, Quavo.
