BJ The Chicago Kid released his anticipated sophomore project 1123 this past weekend, and it's 13 tracks of pure, unfiltered R&B soul. With guest appearances from Anderson .Paak, Offset, Rick Ross, Afrojack, Eric Bellinger and more, there's definitely something for everyone. For example, sultry track "Time Today" was tailor-made for all the lovers out there. And now we have a steamy new video that might inspire you to cancel your plans and stay home.
Directed by Child, the sexy ballad plays out on-screen with the lovely Scottie Beam as BJ's leading lady. Scottie admits she was quite nervous about her first music video because she doesn't "know how to be sexy or look sexy." Ma'am? Really? She sure fooled us. The duo proceeds to fog up the screen with their chemistry before the scene changes to a packed venue where the soulful crooner is performing. Needless to say, everybody's having a good time as BJ and the band work it out on stage.
Now this is where things get a little crazy. Out of the blue, a man starts arguing with BJ's lady love and proceeds to get physically abusive. WTH? We have questions. Who is this guy? Was Scottie in another relationship all along...meaning she was just BJ's fantasy girl? Did this dude really think he could yoke her up in public and get away with it? Why introduce this unnecessary drama in the first place? Perplexities aside, we think you'll want to make time to watch the sultry clip today.
1123 is currently available via BJ The Chicago Kid's website and your favorite digital retailers.
