Jidenna is a new artist coming out of Janelle Monae’s Wondaland Records record label. Janelle recently made a partnership with Epic Records to expand her collective & make major power moves. She will be releasing a compilation album in May featuring all of her artists. The first single off of this album is this track, Classic Man featuring Roman GianArthur.
The video portrays Jidenna & his crew as renaissance men styled to perfection & being smooth, classic men. They even take in some younger men to teach them how to do it. The cool, colorful visuals are directed by Alan Ferguson, who recently married Solange Knowles. The video features a cameo by many from the Wondaland society, including Deep Cotton & Janelle Monae herself. Jidenna proclaims, “I’m a classic man…you can be mean when you look this clean…I’m a classic man…callin on me like a young OG…I’m a classic man…your needs get met by the street elegant old-fashioned man…I’m a classic man”.
