Jidenna Channels the Art of Parking Lot Pimpin’ in “The Let Out” [Watch]

Jidenna has had a busy year, but that’s not stopping the “classic man” from kicking it old school with his new single, “The Let Out.”

The singer/rapper/actor shows fans where the real party is as he hops in his clunky Honda Civic and cruises to a nightclub where the party is in the parking lot.

“Heard the shit was jumpin’ like the wall that border Mexico,” he spits over a bouncing trap beat.

The single, which features Quavo, doesn’t feature an appearance by the Migos‘  member in the music video, but it does features artists Fear & Fancy and Nana Kwabena. As the fourth single from The Chief, it looks as if Jidenna is definitely planning to make 2017 memorable.

After appearing on then President Barack Obama’s summer 2016 playlist and HBO’s Insecure, Jidenna is definitely carving his name in the business and we can’t wait to see what’s next.

Jidenna has been working on this album for at least two years and in the meantime, has been performing his music at concerts and festivals everywhere.

After hitting the music scene with his debut single “Classic Man” in 2015, which was on the Wondaland Presents: The Eephus EP, Jidenna became a household name and the song a mantra for stylish men everywhere.

The album will feature fellow Wondaland Records artists Janelle Monae, Roman Gianarthur, and St. Beauty. Jidenna’s album The Chief is available for pre-orders on iTunes and will officially be out Feb. 17th.

iPhone 8 to Feature 5.8-Inch OLED Display With 5.15-Inch Main Screen and Virtual Buttons Below

The upcoming 2017 iPhone will feature a 5.8-inch display with 5.15 inches of usable screen space according to new predictions shared by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo believes the iPhone 8 will use a 5.8-inch OLED display panel, but that some space will be reserved for virtual buttons.

As has been rumored, the display is said to take up the entire front panel of the iPhone, effectively eliminating bezels, which means Apple will eliminate both the current Home button and the current Touch ID fingerprint recognition technology used in iPhones.

Size wise, Kuo says the OLED iPhone will have measurements similar to the 4.7-inch iPhone, allowing for one-handed operation. Such a size is possible with a 5.8-inch panel because there will be no extra space outside of the display, as can be seen in the mockup below. It will feature a display similar in size to the 5.5-inch iPhone, but in a 4.7-inch package.

Alongside the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone, Kuo continues to believe Apple will also offer standard 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch LCD iPhones, but it is not yet clear what features those devices will adopt. In previous research notes, Kuo has said they will include glass bodies and wireless charging, but he has not gone into detail on other potential features. He does, however, say that the OLED iPhone will be “the only bright spot” in the 2017 iPhone lineup, suggesting only minor improvements for the other two rumored devices.

Because the OLED iPhone will eliminate the Home button, it is expected to adopt “other biometric technologies,” which other rumors suggest could include things like iris or facial recognition.

Battery life may also be another major change in the OLED iPhone, with Apple expected to introduce a stacked logic board design to support bigger batteries and longer battery life. In today’s report, Kuo says the iPhone 8, though similar in size to the 4.7-inch iPhone 7, will feature a battery capacity similar to the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus.

With the radical design changes, battery improvements, and the new biometric features, Kuo expects the OLED iPhone to cost in excess of $1,000, a pricing rumor that was also shared by Fast Company last week. Kuo does not expect the high price point to significantly impact sales due the “innovative user experience” offered by the device.

He believes Apple will ship 100 million iPhones during the second half of 2017, with 60 percent of those to consist of the higher-end OLED iPhone.

WWE SmackDown: Burning Questions to Address After Feb. 14 Show

The Valentine’s Day edition of WWE SmackDown created a thick fog along the road to WrestleMania 33.

Thanks to Randy Orton swearing allegiance to Bray Wyatt, a WWE Championship match that seemed certain just days ago is now up in the air. The blue brand may be poised to move major chess pieces around ahead of The Showcase of the Immortals.

Is SmackDown simply toying with its audience? Could a dark horse emerge as Wyatt’s challenger?

These are the biggest questions Tuesday’s SmackDown left lingering.

The future of James Ellsworth and Carmella’s relationship is uncertain, as well. Tuesday’s show also left fans wondering about the narrative arc of Nikki Bella vs. Natalya and Luke Harper’s position on the SmackDown food chain.

The blue brand did well to create intrigue, as it left many a question unanswered. Let’s dive into each of them, with an eye on WrestleMania’s impending approach. 


Will Falls Count Anywhere Match Be the End of Natalya vs. Bella?

Two days after Natalya and Bella couldn’t settle things in the ring, they began to brawl backstage in front of SmackDown general manager Daniel Bryan.

Bryan had seen enough. These women have been fighting all over the arena for weeks.

The GM announced that Bella and Natalya would battle in a Falls Count Anywhere match next week. 

That’s the kind of bout that effectively caps off a feud. Are we nearing the end of this rivalry? Or will the enemies find a way to continue their personal war?

If Natalya vs. Bella was a WrestleMania-worth match, perhaps the Falls Count Anywhere bout would only be a precursor to something bigger.

Bella, though, likely has something else ahead for her. Her collision with Maryse backstage at the Elimination Chamber, combined with John Cena pinning The Miz that same night, feels like the beginnings of a rivalry between couples.

If that’s the case, Bella will finish Natalya off once and for all next Tuesday, allowing her to begin her WrestleMania story.


How Will Harper Impact WWE Title Scene?

Before Wyatt took on Cena and AJ Styles in Tuesday’s main event, an old ally ambushed him. Harper pounced on the WWE champ until referees pulled him off.

This followed a loss on Sunday to the man who replaced Harper in Wyatt’s crew—Orton. 

It’s clear Harper isn’t done tangling with what’s left of The Wyatt Family.

Is Harper going to be disruptor from this point forward? Will he cost Wyatt the title out of spite? Will he himself be the one to challenge his former leader?

Regardless, it looks like Harper is set to be a part of SmackDown‘s main event picture. Miami Herald columnist Scott Fishman among those glad to see Harper in this spot:

Hopefully, this isn’t a short-term situation. Harper has been due for a push for a long while. He’s a big bruiser who excels in slugfests—an emerging star in need of a major opportunity.

That was clear on Sunday’s pay-per-view, when Harper thrived in a loss to Orton.

The smart move would be to slide Harper into the WWE title match at WrestleMania. His history with Orton and Wyatt would make for quite the storyline.


What Does Carmella Have Planned for Ellsworth?

Ellsworth continued to dote on Carmella on Tuesday. He flirted with her and fought for her honor when Dean Ambrose ran his mouth.

She couldn’t care less. Her disdain for him has grown clearer in recent weeks. She told him on Tuesday to take it slow and keep things professional, obviously delaying things with him.

What’s her endgame? How will Carmella use her hold over Ellsworth? Will she break his heart for the sport of it, or is this all part of a master plan?

If it’s the latter option, it’s hard to tell what WWE has in mind.

Ellsworth isn’t exactly flush with money or influence. The only thing he can really offer is to be her sacrificial lamb.

What began as a seemingly throwaway story is starting to develop some legs. Hopefully, WWE doesn’t end this in fizzling fashion and instead finds a way to craft Carmella an unforgettable heel moment. 


Who Will Face Wyatt at WrestleMania?

Orton winning the Royal Rumble and Wyatt retaining the WWE title on Tuesday made it feel certain that WrestleMania was assured a clash of Wyatt Family members. That may not be the case.

After Wyatt outlasted Styles and Cena, Orton approached the champ. He refused to face him, bowed down before him and promised subservience. 

There goes SmackDown‘s top WrestleMania match. Or does it? Is WWE really shifting plans or adding drama to what we expected all along?

On Tuesday’s Talking Smack, Bryan booked a No. 1 Contender’s Battle Royal for next week. That will at least open the door for another challenger to step up.  

What a Maneuver brought up the idea of all Wyatt Family Triple Threat match:

That’s the ideal move if WWE is going to shift away from its Wyatt-Orton idea. There will be so much story to tap into with that battle. Plus, this would be the biggest match of Harper’s career, helping to further the bruiser’s career, win or lose.

WWE isn’t likely to scrap its WrestleMania plans but instead adjust them for the better.
