With Drake and Rihanna achieving chart-topping success with their dancehall-inspired jams “One Dance” and “Work,” respectively, it looks like Jidenna is jumping on the musical trend with his leaked song, “Little Bit More.”
The upbeat track boasts tribal drums, cracking snares and a groove that should put you in an island vibe. On the song, Jidenna is serenading a woman on the dance floor and is tempting her to come join him back at his shrine.
“You should make up your mind / Take you back to my shrine / Don’t you pay them no mind / Let them be, let them go / She was made for my eyes / We escape at times / And I’ma need the whole night and a little bit more,” he sings.
There’s no word if the song will appear on Jidenna’s debut Long Live the Chief, which has no release date as of yet.
“No one looks like this in hip-hop. I started singing because it was a natural evolution in hip-hop to me,” he says. “Without Prince, I wouldn’t have embraced that. I wouldn’t have been able to embrace me.”
When I used to walk around, people used to call me the Willy Wonka of the hood,” he continued. “I would not be able to embrace my strange, my weirdo – my inner magic if it weren’t for him.”
