After much anticipation, BJ the Chicago Kid released his Motown debut In My Mind last Friday (Feb. 19).
Now see what it’s like to be BJ in this black-and-white visual called “A Day in My Mind,” which meshes together his Jay Rock collab “OMG” (not on the LP) and “A Woman’s World.”
On “OMG,” BJ and Jay Rock document life around the way on the gritty track. They ride out to an open mic, and BJ performs “A Woman’s World” from his LP.
About the latter tune, BJ told the Red Light Special podcast, “I feel like we only pay attention to the first part of what James Brown says: ‘This is a man’s world.’ We forget or act like the radio goes off when he says, ‘But it wouldn’t be nothing without a woman or girl.’ I took the part where we turn the radio down and made that my biggest message. I’m really pretty much saying the same thing he said but I’m making sure the whole line is heard.”
Right on, BJ!
