BJ The Chicago Kid Celebrates D’Angelo On A Special Anniversary (Audio)
BJ The Chicago Kid has stepped into the role of one of Motown Records’ biggest male soloists. While the Illinois native’s albums have been lower-key in the case of 2012’s Pineapple Now-Laters, he is gearing up for a hefty 2016 care of In My Mind.
Meanwhile, as BJ’s discography is a product of the Internet era, the crooner has worked on acclaimed, charting albums by Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, ScHoolboy Q, and now Dr. Dre.
In the opening days of 2016, BJ The Chicago Kid honors one of his biggest inspirations: D’Angelo. “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” released 16 years ago yesterday. The lead in to Voodoo was surrounded with a famous music video and the Virginian’s sole #1 LP.
Previously, BJ has covered an array of artists, from Kanye West, James Brown, and Aaliyah. Do these homages promote discourse and promotion for BJ at once?
