BJ the Chicago Kid Pays Tribute to Aaliyah, ’90s R&B in ‘One in a Million’ Video
Most of today's contemporary singers have been influenced by '90s R&B music. So it's always nice to see an artist pay homage to their favorite acts from that era. BJ the Chicago Kid salutes his three favorite artists -- Aaliyah, R. Kelly and Jodeci -- with his new video for 'One in a Million.'
In the clip, helmed by Jerome D., the Motown Records artist is in a letterbox shot as he sings a thoughtful cover of the late songbird's track, all while her 'One in a Million' visual plays in the background. The video then segues into R. Kelly, as he pays tribute to the Pied Piper with his flip of 'R&B Thug.' Finally, he closes with his rendition of Jodeci's 'Feenin.'
BJ's new video should help you forget about Lifetime's epic fail of an Aaliyah biopic. The effort should also remind you of some of the great R&B music that came out during the 1990s.
The singer's 'One in a Million' cover is featured on his new mixtape, 'The M.A.F.E. Project,' which boasts guest appearances from ScHoolboy Q, Smoke DZA and Freddie Gibbs. You can download it here and listen below.
