Since adding "GRAMMY-nominated" in front of his name, BJ The Chicago Kid is wasting no time in taking advantage of the spotlight the honor has afforded him. Just last week, he dropped new song "Uncle Marvin" and today he's bringing us the song's official video.
Rather than do something as cliché as film himself surrounded by images of the song's inspiration Marvin Gaye, BJ instead decides to throw a pre-holiday house party and invite all his friends. R&B up-and-comers Kevin Ross and Leon Bridges are in the number, as are a whole host of other beautiful black people bathed in red light as they pour up drinks and smoke that green. Among all this is BJ, who croons remorseful, apologetic lyrics about the wrong he's done to a girl who's been nothing but good to him. Though the visual and the song's message don't necessarily match up, it's somehow a fitting clip that adds a bit of cinematic flair to the moody number.
"Uncle Marvin" is set to appear on BJ's upcoming mixtape, The Lost Files: Cuffing Season. Consisting of eight tracks that he discovered on a lost hard drive, the mixtape is a gift to his fans for their support in what has been a monumental year for the Chi-Town singer. Check out the video for "Uncle Marvin" below and look for The Lost Files: Cuffing Season to drop tomorrow.
