Jidenna

R&B crooner Jidenna drops his latest single, "Bambi", off his album titled The Chief, set for release on Feb. 17.

On the Doo-wop single, Jidenna warns the love of his life not get too near because, after all, he is a man who cheats and lies.

Jidenna sings:

    Oh Bambi it's my design
    To run the jungle I must be a lion
    Or be a cheetah but neither is fine
    Don't wanna hurt my dear love of my life

His life is complicated because Bambi has heeded his warning. Bambi is marrying another man who she hopes will exercise a little more discipline.

But Jidenna cautions her:

    I got the wedding invitation Bambi
    I'm happy that he wants to make a family
    But I cannot promise I won't run up in the church
    There screaming your name Bambi
    No one can take you from me Bambi

Rated B roses

Check out a teaser from Jidenna's upcoming album, The Chief.

  • LadyFrance

    Um...the lyrics sound psychotic. It sounds like a man pretty much telling you to get strapped up because he is going to be one of those, if I can't have you no one can

  • Ms.Caramel

    Where's all the women in Jidennas picture up top? Looks funny with all men hovering around him.

  • Libra80sBaby

    That was tv and the circumstances were different. Dwayne wasn't no low down dirty dog to Whit.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Wait. What?

  • nicelyput32

    Me too??

  • Ms.Caramel

    He shouldn't have gotten an invite anyway.

  • Libra80sBaby

    I miss the days when videos were like mini-movies. The song and video were in sync. When they used to have WORLD PREMIERS for music video releases. Now....they be like, fuk it. You dont find out a song has a video until the song old as chit...lol

  • Buttercup

    You're right. When I get married, my ushers will know some folks are not allowed to enter.

  • Libra80sBaby

    He look like he takes his time with the female anatomy....mmmmmmm

  • Ms.Caramel

    Cackles...

  • Blaque Mahogany

    In other news,Betsy Devos tried to visit a public school in DC (?) and protesters blocked the school so she couldn't get in.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Hell NAWL! LOL

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I so adore everything about him. Another man, who even though his mannerisms, dress etc could be called gay, gives No Fukks and No Apologies for who HE IS!!

  • missmiami305

    She was a mess

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Yup!

  • Libra80sBaby

    Music videos were so the chit, they had "Pop Up Video" and shows that went behind the scenes on the making of the video. They even had a show that told you how high them mfs cost to make. The makeup, sound, effects, dancers. etc. I loved that era. Now....I wish the fuk I would care....lol

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I just asked someone if when folks make them itch, is it their azz? Cause an azz itch means IT IS REAL!!,???

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

  • Buttercup

    Who wouldn't run from 3 bulldaggers?

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I don't get gay from him, just old school masculine. Back when men took pride in their appearance and shopped in the men's section only.

  • Carolina Blue

    ? i would.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I don't get gay from A LOT of filks who are deemed gay.....him included, which is why I said "could be called gay", cause you know it can and will happen.

  • lilred1

    L.O.L.

  • Strong White Woman

    I like Jidenna. Heavily involved with the movement. Bold for someone who doesn't have much clout in the business. I can dig it. For some it's much deeper than losing fans and sponsors. Good for him. Black lives matter! Always?

    Basically! What a cop out he's turned out to be. Inclusive of all women? During Black history month? Girl, he lucky Dub ain't catch wind of that. All sorts of meat woulda been left at every venue he's scheduled to appear at?

  • Nancy Drew is All The Way Up!

  • Libra80sBaby

  • Junkanoo

    The lyrics are schizophrenic ,he wants to sleep around not settle down but the minute she finds someone to get married to he wants to say no one can take her from him...... A bunch of foolishness

  • Carolina Blue

    I liked how he put that becky in here place.

  • Missy

    Chiiile. All around.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    My friends wife is guilty of this. She's an AG and carries herself like rick Ross.

  • Libra80sBaby

    Second favorite was when Whitley told Dwayne she was pregnant. Oooh.. and the episodes where ol boy was beatin up on Gina azz.

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Maxwell tried It like he don't JUST be singin at BET awards. All MTV awards n Grammys don't matter tho. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f0685893b9d7e98caf37884aed943dbfad8d368dc213ac8652543200a8ec8962.jpg

  • Libra80sBaby

    Oh! and when Pac was on there as Piccalo. Dayum I LOVED that show. That show along with School Dayz is the reason I went to HBCU

  • lilred1

    ???

  • Buttercup

    I stopped dead in my tracks and asked her what it meant. She said, "Ya know. She funny. She AC/DC. She like women." She didn't say things like that often, so it's stuck with me.

  • Strong White Woman

    Someone did an excellent side by side presentation of Kofi's words next to Maxwell. Making Maxwell look even worse. I'm thankful for the Kofi's of the world. However it seems like for every Kofi there's 2 or more Maxwells?

  • Strong White Woman

    He went on a twitter rant talm bout celebrating all women during black history month because not all women look??? I think he said typically black?? A mess. He used a picture of? Lena Horne maybe? I forget. If he actually spoke to the Lena Horne's of the world he'd learn that they were being forced to use the back door entrance to the venues they were playing at no matter how non traditionally black they looked?

  • Strong White Woman

    Called her a bitch huh?!LMAO. He was big mad?

  • Carolina Blue

    Bigly!

  • Carolina Blue

    Yessss.

  • Junkanoo

    When the dick is too good RUN!!! especially if they know it they will cause ya to lose all your common sense

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yeah, that doesn't even make sense. I kinda wanted to see MJB in concert but I heard she was touring with him so that turned into a "no".

    I really don't understand people like him. I don't.

  • Sucker Free

    Girrrrllluh. I been delivert but it was a rough 8 years with that demon...

  • Blaque Mahogany

    That I did see! And I thought that was beautiful...just like him.

  • Libra80sBaby

    No. The. Fuk. He DIDNT! Does he not know that his WHOLE audience is BLACK FEMALE??? Aint no white chicks checkin for Maxwell ass for real and he KNOWS this. Look at his tour schedule and artist roster, he know who he eatin off of. ungrateful bytch...lemme unfollow his ass on IG

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    My gf and I argued about this a few weeks back. I say he's fine (but I love redheads) she said he look like Satan...smh

  • Blaque Mahogany

    ROFL. Dwl. Girl! I felt all of this.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    How did I miss all of this? Tell me what happened...

  • Libra80sBaby

    Like Maxwell, you aint but 3 steps from going back chitlin circuit so STFU and sing. Dont do chit else. Cause see, I cant deal with the fuk shyt.

  • Libra80sBaby

    and then to top it off, HE AINT Light bright neither. Come to think of it, he cant pass for chit but what he is...BLACK. So dude, where does your argument even stem from. You aint passing for chit

  • Sucker Free

    he looks timeless...he could be from the past or the future

  • Libra80sBaby

    Jesus Wept :(

  • Libra80sBaby

    You can go!!! Ret fukin Nih!
    lmaoooooooo

  • Strong White Woman

    Oh he knows, but this is a part of his attempt at broadening. He's been doing that. When the video of that yt boy singing his song went viral, he took the time to talk about music bridging gaps and what not? All lives matter and stuff? He'll learn. The shea butter community lit his ass up. He was hurt. Called one girl a bitch via dm? He knew not to tweet it, but didn't think that she would screenshot and tweet it?

    I liked 'Classic Man' out the gate. This one will have to grow on me, though. I don't hate it. Love the music. I guess it's just not slow/not fast and it's kinda messing with me. If that makes any sense.

    I doubt it gets any airplay, anyway.
