BJ the Chicago Kid - Real Love Never Dies

  • Artist: BJ The Chicago Kid
  • Track: Real Love Never Dies
  • Producer: James Brown
  • Album: None (Promo Single)

Fresh off earning positive reader reviews for the strip club-ready Go Girl, BJ the Chicago Kid returns to our front page with something a little more old-school. A demo newly released as a loosie, Real Love Never Dies borrows its instrumental backdrop from James Brown's classic poem set to music, King Heroin. Though the Windy City crooner departs from the source material's subject matter, turning the cut's warm brass and arpeggiated bassline into the backdrop for a more traditional ballad, I think y'all will agree that he did the Godfather of Soul proud. Like what you're hearing? Then stay tuned; while Real Love isn't part of anything larger, I have a feeling more from BJ is just around the corner. In the meantime, you can click here to peep Jerome D.'s off-the-cuff visual accompaniment to the cut.
