Upcoming R&B singer BJ The Chicago Kid’s voice is one set up for some classics; with a hint of D’Angelo and an ever so slight dash of Marvin Gaye, BJ blends his own unmatched style to create a powerful mood. Starting off with motivational sound bite from Will Smith, the video for “Dream II” follows BJ during a trip to Paris – a city of dreams all its own. Look out for this dude, y’all.

The track is from his recently released Pineapple Now & Laters album. Here’s to making our dreams come true.

“Banana Wine” might need to become our choice drink for this summer. We’ve had the song as a staple on our playlist ever since we mentioned it back in March and it’s still making us feel fine. Can we talk about that guitar? Ungh! Now there’s a mystical video of glowing black and white images to go with this endlessly calming tune. Nothing’s messing with Mo Kolours right now.

London electro-pop artist Kwes. releases the video for “Bashful” as he prepares to release his upcoming Meantime EP. Kind of reminds us of the UK vocalist Sampha, who you might know via his affiliations of SBTRKT. Filmed in an elevator, the video celebrates the joys of “understated awkwardness” – an important part of life indeed.

Look out for the Meantime EP to drop on April 30.

On Sunday, Sonnymoon had you doing the rumpty dance (get it, get it?!) and you were feeling yourself – cool, cool. But what’s cooler is now you have a video companion to your “Wild Rumpus” shenanigans – aww, shoot! Time for blast off to starry far off lands and a little cruise with a possessed psychedelic bird eye. Nature is totally rad.

The duo’s self-titled debut album, Sonnymoon, will be out on May 22.

In her new video for “Blessed,” an exuberant Jill Scott recounts all the way she is blessed – from a grandmother living until 92, a good father to her child, self-love, peace of mind, a good night’s sleep, and support from her parents – Jill’s list goes on and on. Great to hear positive music like this. Watch out for the special muppet appearance, too – ha!
