The great Maya Angelou once said, “They may forget your name, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” This is precisely the sentiment BJ The Chicago Kid attempts to convey on his aptly-titled new single “Forgot Your Name.”

The seven-time GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter teamed up with producer Yeti Beats and multi-instrumentalist Cory Henry to tell the all too familiar tale of how one can be completely present and still draw a blank on some of the details. Though his candid confession sounds a bit like “mansplaining,” BJ’s signature tone smooths everything over as he sings, “We’ve been laughin’ and jokin’, dancin’ n’ smokin’, babe / But these drinks so strong that I forgot your name.”

This latest drop marks BJTCK’s first release via Yeti’s imprint Reach The World Records, a joint venture with RCA Records, and showcases his knack for vivid storytelling through soothing, soulful vocals. His creation of relatable content is intentional, and his own lived experience is likely the root of a lot of his inspiration.

Via press release, BJ explains, “As a songwriter, I strive to capture the essence of a moment and turn it into a story that resonates with others.” He continues, “This song is inspired by that feeling of meeting someone at a bar and being swept up in the moment, only to realize you can’t remember their name. It’s a mix of excitement and vulnerability, but ultimately it’s about the universal desire to connect with others and create meaningful experiences that last long after the night is over.”
