“Bambi” – Jidenna

Trying to find the words to describe this song, I would have to go with something along the lines of an African, hip-hop, lullaby, love song. It’s got the pleasant chimes of a lullaby but also has the beat in the background and it’s pretty dope. It also sounds somewhat like a folky African love song, about the woman in the title, Bambi. In that same vein, there’s a sense of some Afro-pop/funk influence in the flow of the song, thinking of Nigerian pop legend William Onyeabor. Naija, stand up!
