Fly Visual: Jidenna Is Overwhelmed by Heartbreak In “Bambi”

Jidenna follows up the release of his debut album The Chief with a video for his latest single”Bambi.”

The “Classic Man” singer continues to portray his story “of manhood” picking up where “A Little Bit More” left off. Delivering another cinematic style clip, this time he recounts the experience of losing the love of his life .

Dressed to the nines of course, Jidenna is overwhelmed by the loss of his girl. Upon finding himself on the other end of a flask he suddenly takes off.

As he’s running through the streets of Lincoln Heights in L.A., he stops to reflect on happier times before continuing his marathon run.

Where could he possibly be headed? We soon learn his final destination when he arrives at a church where his ex, played by Megalyn Echikunwoke (CSI: Miami); is exiting with her new groom, played by Jay Ellis (Insecure).

“No one can take you from me,” he sings before he drunkenly attacks them causing a scene. The Wondaland Records crooner makes one more fool hearted attempt as he chases the car down the street before realizing it’s too late.
