BJ the Chicago Kid 'In My Mind' (album stream)
Born Bryan James Sledge, Illinois soul singer-songwriter BJ the Chicago Kid recently paid homage to his musical hero D'Angelo with a covers EP, but he's set to shine the spotlight on himself with the release of his latest LP In My Mind next week. Before it arrives, the folks over at NPR are giving you a chance to hear it in its entirety.

The 15-track offering features some pretty high-profile cameos from the likes of Chance the Rapper ("Church") and Big K.R.I.T. ("The Resume"), as well as an until-now unheard cut with Kendrick Lamar called "The New Cupid."

There are plenty of soulful songs to sink your teeth into, and you can do just that in the player below. In My Mind is officially out on February 19 through Motown Records.
