It's not about underwear

Jidenna "Classic Man" Mobisson has just released a new video for his song "Knickers," which has been floating around since the end of December.

If you haven't heard "Knickers" before, you should know the song is, blessedly, not really about women's underwear or weird golf pants. Its entire forward thrust operates around tongue-in-cheek wordplay, because "knickers" sounds like another word — one YouTube definitely would have censored.

It's a clever concept, it's catchy as heck, and the simple video fits the song's brassy, big band vibe. The clip, set in a club that looks like it could be from the Prohibition era or 2017, is just one big dance party... until the cops show up.
