Th dropping of the temperature nationwide signals that settle-down season is upon us, and soul singer BJ the Chicago Kid has provided what seems like the perfect mixtape to spin on those cold nights. After a duet with Marvin Gaye to get things started right, the REVOLT Sessions alumnus sings, "I want to be hired. I want to work for you. I'm tired of filling out all these part-time job applications; I need full time."
From there The Lost Files: Cuffing Season proves itself more clever than just a babymaking soundtrack, it spins "cuffing season" on its head by continuing the story of what happens to these makeshift relationships after the first few Netflix and chill moments.
'90s babies will instantly recognize the audio samples interwoven throughout from What's Love Got to Do With It? the 1993 biographical movie of one of music's most famously tumultuous couples, Ike and Tina Turner. With carefully selected scenes, BJ lets Ike and Tina take us from the giddy beginnings of a new flame, to the highs and lows that can ensue. But even as things get turbulent, BJ, our pilot, navigates us through each scenario with a sturdy, silky voice that's smooth as dark liquor.
