BJ the Chicago Kid Announces Debut In My Mind Ft. Kendrick and Chance, Shares "Love Inside" Video

BJ the Chicago Kid has announced his debut album In My Mind. It’s out February 19 via Motown Records, and features guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper (on "Church,") Big K.R.I.T., and more. BJ has also shared the video for "Love Inside" (featuring Isabella) from the album. Watch it below, and check out the album art and tracklist.

BJ also recently appeared on All Def Digital’s "Arts & Raps" video series, in which artists answer questions posed by little kids. In BJ’s episode, called "Why Does Future Mumble?", he paints with two little boys, who ask him a slew of questions, including "How should I surprise my girlfriend on Valentine’s Day?" and the titular "Why does Future mumble?" BJ’s answer to the latter is simple: "I think Future just wants you to understand the feeling sometimes. Sometimes it’s about the emotion." He also talks about Future’s special "sippy cup" that helps him sing. Watch the whole thing below.

The album will be BJ’s second project of 2016. He already released an EP of D’Angelo covers.

Tom Ford Reveals 2016 Spring Campaign Shot by Nick Knight

Tom Ford has just unveiled his 2016 spring campaign, shot by renowned fashion photographer Nick Knight in Los Angeles. In the first image, we see an atmospheric environment lit with a dramatic chiaroscuro effect as models are garbed with vibrantly colored tuxedos and flashy sequined dresses. The campaign will feature models Lucky Blue Smith, Mica Arganaraz and Lida Fox, with the photos originating from the 2016 spring/summer lookbook video starring Lady Gaga. As a direct product of the designer’s decision to abstain from presenting a live runway show, Tom Ford instead opted for the fashion video as a medium. Inspired by the ’70s TV Show, "Soul Train," he said of the project, "I decided to try something new. I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed, from its inception, to be presented online.” The campaign launches today on tomford.com and will kick off internationally in the March issues of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and Vanity Fair.
