Listen to Jidenna's 2 New Fire Singles—'Zodi' and 'Sou Sou'

These tracks will surely heat up your weekend.

Jidenna has prescribed this Friday with another double dose of new music—"Zodi" and "Sou Sou"—from his upcoming album, 85 to Africa.

In "Zodi," Jidenna and Mr Eazi link up to sing about a woman who searches for signs of love in the stars when it's right in front of her. In good toasting fashion with the bass line from Busta Rhymes' "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See" in the underbelly, they croon about going above and beyond to get her love. The stars are in their eyes, abi?

"Sou Sou" is a cheeky and witty track where we hear many plays on the informal rotating savings club our communities in Africa and the diaspora still take part in today. Not to mention, Jidenna effortlessly shows off his ability to spit straight bars.

These tracks are surely what you need to heat up your weekend.

Get into "Zodi" and "Sou Sou" via Spotify, Apple Music and Youtube below. 85 to Africa drops August 23.
