Just weeks after R&B soul singer BJ The Chicago Kid dropped his acclaimed In My Mind album, we sat down with the Chicago crooner to discuss the inspiration behind his latest LP and the people who push him to be a better artist, including his friend Anderson .Paak and idol D’Angelo.

On the day BJ released the viral video for his song “OMG/Woman’s World” featuring Jay Rock, we asked BJ how the California rapper was recovering after a near fatal motorcycle accident in February.

“He’s doing a lot better,” BJ said. “The prayers are working and the energy that’s sent is amazing. He can’t wait to get back out.”

BJ also discussed his street style and fashion choices as an R&B singer, as well as his partnership with Footaction.

His new album In My Mind is now available on iTunes. Watch our exclusive interview with BJ above.
