BJ the Chicago Kid Fights Temptation on ‘Church’ Featuring Chance the Rapper and Buddy
The Chicago native, who was born to two church choir directors, attempts to fight the guile of a woman who wants to "drink, do drugs and have sex." BJ can't participate in these activities because he has a pretty importance place to go in the morning: church.
"It's hard to say no when it's looking so good in my face / Girl, all them curves got me on a swerve when I'm tryna drive straight," the Pineapple Now-Laters creator delivers.
Buddy comes in with strong vocals as he declares, "Hopefully we can go to heaven, I pray," on the hook.
"She always getting her own way / When I try, she always say / 'Hey I don't wanna get saved, don't wanna be saved' / Pray that one of these days she'll wanna behave," spits Chance over snares and the plucking of a guitar.
This song, which serves as a the follow-up to BJ's "Nothin' But Love" featuring Joey Bada$$ and comedian Hannibal Burress, will appear on his forthcoming album, In My Mind. Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock and OG Maco are just some of the featured collaborators on the project.
