‘Butterflies’ contains a relatable narrative and harmonious rap vocals that will resonate well with fans of A$AP Rocky. The likable tune possesses melodic instrumentation flavored with contemporary rap and cloud-hop elements.

Jidé developed a passion for music early. He used to record raps into his mother’s stereo player, often dubbing over her favorite music tapes. This early musical background manifested in his adolescent years as Jidé got into rapping and producing instrumentals for local acts in the Houston area. Eventually, he tapped into his own gifts and began releasing music independently via SoundCloud and Spotify. So far, his songs have amassed over 500K streams across all DSPs.
