Watch Jidenna Get Animated During His 'Tiny Desk' Performance

Jidenna hit NPR's Tiny Desk for an energetic performance of some of his hits.

Jidenna stopped by NPR's Tiny Desk for an animated performance of three of his most memorable tracks from his debut album, The Chief. 


The singer enters the room looking dapper as usual with a gray "top and bottom," and a multicolored cane. He heads straight into a mellow rendition of "Trampoline." Next he gives a rocked-out version of "Long Live the Chief," before ending his set with his highlife-inspired single "Bambi."

The colorful set is a great way to get your post-three day weekend, work week started. Watch it below, and revisit Jidenna's The Chief, available now.
