Meet BJ The Chicago Kid: R&B Music’s Savior
Posted on March 23, 2016
It’s no secret that R&B is going through a bit of an identity crisis. But BJ the Chicago Kid’s In My Mind looks to reinstate everything that made the genre great to begin with.
If you watched the 2016 Grammys, you didn’t see any R&B. Clearly, that genre of music isn’t important or popular enough to get a slice of the 2 1/2 hour airtime. But that doesn’t mean the art is dead. BJ the Chicago Kid‘s debut album In My Mind is proof that today’s artists haven’t forgotten the genre’s roots and have much more to contribute to its legacy. His album is honest, musical, and soulful, but still refreshingly current.
