Sometimes you just need a dose of that old-school sounding new school soul. Anita Baker’s “Angel” is an R&B classic and the classics are usually best left alone.
However, Lalah Hathaway isn’t afraid to take on the task of revisiting a legend – likely because she’s the daughter of a legend herself. Just hours before New Music Friday, 3x Grammy nominated crooner BJ The Chicago Kid coupled up with Lalah for a remix to her modern day rendition of “Angel,” which she originally released on her 2015 album Lalah Hathaway Live!
Over the course of just under four minutes, Lalah’s buttery vocals, coupled with BJ’s smooth crooning, create a refreshing re-imagining of “Angel” for millennials.
Take a listen to Lalah Hathaway’s “Angel (Remix)” featuring BJ The Chicago Kid down below!
