BJ The Chicago Kid drops sensual video for ‘Uncle Marvin’


BJ The Chicago has been here before. When he sings, you feel his emotion and pain. Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass and Sam Cooke had these same variables within their music. This is the familiar factor we recognize within BJ The Chicago Kid. This is also why he will be a force within music for years to come.

BJ The Chicago Kid released a video for his song “Uncle Marvin,” which appears on his new EP, The Lost Files: Cuffing Season. The video within itself finds him scrambling for clarity amidst temptation. Beautiful women, homeboys and smoke in mirrors are omnipresent throughout. The real reflection comes at the end of the video where BJ looks at himself with conviction and confidence. You can’t help but also recognize “Cleo’s Apartment” by Marvin Gaye which was sampled throughout the song. BJ tends to draw inspiration from Gaye and his sound is reminiscent of the late singer, as well. Recently, he was nominated for three Grammy Awards including Best R&B Album for “In My Mind.”

Check out BJ The Chicago Kid’s new EP, The Lost Files: Cuffing Season.
