Is Jidenna going to bring back the swing revival? His new video would suggest that this is a very real danger. The snappily dressed Atlanta R&B singer, who made my favorite song of last year, has a new song called “Knickers,” which is both a sartorial anthem and a pun that someone manages to span an entire song. In the new video, he’s in full-on ’30s-speakeasy mode, presiding over a wood-paneled room full of lindy-hopping revelers. There’s also an inspired bit of anti-cop defiance at the end of the video. Someone let Big Bad Voodoo Daddy know that it’s safe to come back now. Watch the video below.
“Knickers” is out now at iTunes.
