“Jidenna and his band recently visited NPR to perform three reworked selections from The Chief. They excitedly explored every nook and cranny of the Tiny Desk in search of props, eventually settling on a toy, the magic microphone, a tambourine and a bottle of whiskey. Jidenna bounced straight through “Trampoline” to “Long Live the Chief,” in which he explains why his threads are always so sharp:
You can either sink, swim or be the captain
Get the last word I’ma get the last laugh in
Now they say, “Jidenna, why you dressing so classic?”
I don’t want my best-dressed day in a casket
Finally, the band pauses, glides into the arresting harmonies of “Bambi,” and finishes charming the socks off the entire room.”

And from there, the Summer Cannibals singer’s sneering new solo single “Televised” becomes one of the most self-assured, most icily detached kiss-offs imaginable. (“You were looking at me / I was looking at you / It was televised.”) Indeed, all that deliciously defiant indifference is fittingly laid over a cooly unsympathetic synth-funk-pop groove and a big, fat, unavoidable hook. It’s a striking diversion from her oeuvre of rocker-chick-chic.”

“We’re especially excited to premiere the powerful new single “Bring Me,” which is an exhilarating anthem of self-possession and emotional fearlessness. It builds from a spine-chilling start, with fiery vocalist Andrea Lo howling out like the force of nature that she is of “all the tears that I draw back in fear.” As a thundering beat takes over, it becomes a rousing, breathtaking electro-disco hymn, as she implores the universe to “See what I can do / See what I can do.””
