The future has never looked brighter for both Kehlani and BJ The Chicago Kid, two angelically-voiced R&B singers who broke out last year with their rather retro approaches to the genre. Today, their paths cross on "Down For You," a track that finds them gelling like two longtime collaborators.
Opening with some clutch harmonizing, the track goes on to sound a little bit like Alicia Keys' "Unbreakable" when the beat drops, but once the hook sets in, "Down For You" is unmistakably a Kehlani jam. BJ gets a verse of his own, and then the talented pair spend the rest of the song interweaving their vocals. This is truly some great stuff.
Love ain't never been so close
But so far away
Like your mind is telling you to just back off
And your heart says just stay
