The kid who sees all from the streets of the Chi already carries one of the more instantly recognizable voices in R&B. Combine that with a cover of one of the year’s already “stuck in your head the moment you hear it” singles and you’re pretty much warranted to sing along with BJ’s reworked version of Gotye’s single. By and large the cover isn’t going to usurp its original for the original has already taken on life as one of the year’s catchiest tracks. But, BJ does his damnedest to inject a little more soul to Gotye’s procession, even dubbing out his chorus for listeners to scream it even more when it arrives.
