We chopped it up with Jidenna to talk growing up in a Nigerian household, working with 2 Chainz, inclusion & more.

Last month, Jidenna released his sophomore album, 85 to Africa. The concept for the album is simple: what are the songs you would want to hear on a long-ass road trip? So, this goes from trap to Afro-soul to Afro Beats.
