Anything new from BJ The Chicago Kid is always welcomed around here.
The R&B soul man has recently teamed up with producer Sufyvn for a special collaboration that has been released by Spotify, as part of their ‘I’m with the banned‘ series. The project features music and videos from artists from Iran, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Sudan, and Libya — the six countries affected by President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban that was partially implemented at the end of June.
These acts have partnered with American artists and producers to create short videos and a full-length documentary due out later this year. The project focuses on issues affecting all communities such as immigration and LGBTQ equality.
Hailing from Sudan, Sufyvn’s production provides a lush soundscape for BJ to bless with his infectious vocals. The crooner is caught up by a new love and he pines to recover their romance anyway possible.
“Baby, just the thought of you keep me from wildin’,” he sings. “Cause baby desperately, I need you next to me / Cause I can’t stop thinking ’bout ya.”
Take a listen to the welcomed collaboration below.
