Watch A Disheveled, Pretend-Drunk Jidenna Sing “Bambi” On Colbert

The R&B charmer Jidenna is not exactly the type to go on TV looking rumpled and sloppy, but that’s sort of what happened last night. Jidenna was the musical guest on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, and he sang “Bambi,” the highlife-influenced ballad from his deeply promising new album The Chief. And he did it with his hair messed up and his suit disheveled, a drink in his hand. Presumably, he was performing in character and calling back to the “Bambi” video, in which he’s a heartbroken drunk. None of this, of course, stopped him from singing well or being charming. Watch the performance below.

The Chief is out now on Wondaland/Epic.
