New Music: BJ the Chicago Kid feat. Kendrick Lamar - 'The New Cupid'

  /  02.11.2016

Here’s a Valentine’s Day anthem with a twist. BJ the Chicago Kid and Kendrick Lamar have teamed up once again on “The New Cupid” off the Illinois crooner’s debut album In My Mind.

The soulful track isn’t exactly a love song. Instead, BJ declares that “Cupid’s busy in the club” and that “love is gone” over a sample of Raphael Saadiq’s “Oh Girl.” Backed by the mellow instrumental with a hip-hop flare, K-Dot reflects on The Commodores, parkin’ lot pimpin’, and being “the realest.”

BJ and Kendrick have built quite a partnership throughout the years, collaborating on songs like “Faith,” “R.O.T.C. (Interlude),” “Kush & Corinthians (His Pain),” and “His Pain.”

But K-Dot isn’t the only rapper on the Chicago Kid’s album. In My Mind boasts a roster that also includes Big K.R.I.T. on “Resume” and Chance the Rapper on “Church.”

In My Mind isn’t due until Feb. 19, but you can stream “The New Cupid” below and the entire album via NPR.
