BJ The Chicago Kid has been known to keep good company. The soul-singer has matched cameos with artists from Schoolboy Q, Chance the Rapper and Big K.R.I.T. to Anderson .Paak, Jill Scott and gospel act Shirley Caesar. Now, all his writing talents and vocal lending comes full circle on his major label debut, In My Mind.

Ahead of the February 19th release date, the LP is streaming in its entirely courtesy of NPR. The 15-track Motown effort, is a soul record inspired by the history of black music: gospel, blues, jazz, and of course hip-hop. Boasting features from a handful of music’s most influenced artists, none of the records mirror the anticipation for “The New Cupid,” which is BJ’s collaboration with Kendrick Lamar.

As expected, “The New Cupid” pins you right in the soul, with both artists mourning past love over Raphael Saadiq’s “Oh Girl” sample. "As I play out the Commodores/My faith destroyed/My heart don't work/I'm unemployed," Lamar raps before searching for a quick fix to his heartbreak with BJ.

Stream “The New Cupid” as well as the full project here, and pre-order In My Mind on iTunes today.
