NPR Tiny Desk: BJ The Chicago Kid Performs 9 Songs In 17 Minutes
BJ The Chicago Kid is an immense talent and should be respected as such. The Chicago crooner was the latest star to grace NPR’s Tiny Desk and he absolutely annihilated it, performing 9 songs in just 17 minutes. The Pineapple-Now-Laters singer performed cuts from his early days and dug deep into his 10-year discography, he also performed his Chance Tha Rapper assisted hit “Church.”
All in all, it’s def a Tiny Desk to watch. BJ originally thought he broke the Tiny Desk record for most songs in 15 minutes, but later found out he went over the allotted time just a little bit.
Either way, the results are excellent.
