Jidenna-Knickers Official Video

Jidenna’s video for “Knickers” uses the legendary Cotton Club of 1920’s and ’30’s Harlem to make a point about racism because it was a whites-only establishment that featured Black entertainers. “Knickers” is an obvious reference to the n word and it becomes clear after all the amazing dancing that takes place and gets interrupted by white police officers who have no other reason to shut down the party but race. Jidenna’s consistently good videos and singles is making his impending album release an impatient waiting game.
