BJ The Chicago Kid – “Good Luv’n”
I’ve been up on BJ The Chicago Kid for awhile. He’s worked with some friends of mine, and his album/mixtape Pineapple Now-Laters was pretty good — and this song was also on that project.
However, now that BJ has signed to Motown, “Good Luv’n” has been serviced as his first single, and I absolutely love this song. The things Mr. Chicago Kid does with his voice are pretty dope, and in terms of actual SINGERS out right now, BJ is in a class of his own, skill-wise. Producers David Haddon & Jairus Mozee create a track that wafts gently yet firmly under BJ’s vocal, and one that doesn’t overpower or draw the attention away from his voice either. BJ’s voice sounds pretty effortless over this jawn. It’s almost like Bilal, Faith Evans and Al Green had a baby.
I saw him live months ago in LA, and he’s equally as talented live, so if you get the chance to check him out.
