ASCAP is seeking Soulful Hip Hop for Motown artist BJ The Chicago Kid.
BJ The Chicago Kid is an American singer-songwriter from Chicago, Illinois.

His first work in the industry was on a Dave Hollister record in 2001, titled "For You", which he co-wrote alongside Gerald Haddon. BJ's vocals were first featured on a high-profile single in 2006; a song by Chicago-bred rapper Kanye West titled "Impossible", released in promotion for the 2006 American film Mission: Impossible III. In February 2012, he independently released his debut studio album, Pineapple Now-Laters. BJ subsequently secured a record deal with Motown in August 2012. The label then serviced the Pineapple Now-Laters song "Good Luv'n", as BJ's commercial debut single.

We are helping the music supervisor of a television show with an ongoing search.
In the show there is a local bar that the main characters frequent. It’s an upscale place that plays everything from Jazz to Indie Rock to Blues to Pop depending on the night/scene. So we’re looking for songs to pitch to them.
We are open to instrumentals but a majority of the chosen tracks will be vocals.
Everything should be modern sounding and if there are lyrics, nothing too obtrusive as there will usually be dialogue on top of the music (i.e. it will be a background use)
They have budgeted $2k-$5k all-in for the spots.
If you are selected, you'll be offered a non-exclusive publishing agreement & you will be pitched to this show.
Please send your BEST!
