Jidenna’s debut album, The Chief, has been a long time coming. His hit single, “Classic Man”, came out two years ago. Ironically, that song is nowhere to be found on his debut.

20 Years Of Erykah’s Brilliant Baduizm

February 11, 2017 marks 20 years since the release of Erykah Badu’s groundbreaking debut album, Baduizm. I still remember the first time I saw the music video for “On & On”.
