BJ The Chicago Kid teased us back in April with the first single from his upcoming sophomore album, 1123, with the smooth groove “Time Today.” While that track was about making time for your loved ones, his follow up has BJ making a little time for his haters. On “Worryin’ Bout Me” he checks them and let em know they need to worry about themselves and not his blessings. He gets help on the track from Offset, the Migos rapper who has his own fair share of haters.
Produced by C Gutta, “Worryin’ Bout Me” is a mid-tempo record that uses stark keys, synths and staccato drumming to reinforce BJ’s message: “Yeah, I got a bag, / I know you mad though / Worryin’ bout me ain’t never made you no money.” Offset shares a braggadocios flow, telling his haters, “Don’t worry ‘bout me, ‘cause God got me.” Word.
Between this new single and “Time Today,” we can see that BJ is exploring a different but familiar vibe for this new project. “This album is a celebratory moment,” the artist told Billboard. “It’s me giving back to the fans.” The project will feature appearances from Travis Scott, Anderson .Paak, J.I.D., Solange and Eric Bellinger, as well as production from Cool and Dre, Danja and others. There’s no release date just yet, but when we know, you’ll know. Until then, hit play and shake the haters off to this latest track from BJTCK and Offset.
