It’s Christmas Eve! And best believe the music industry is aware of that. Today and tomorrow will mark new releases from some of your favorite rappers and singers (the one I’m still looking forward to: Fabolous’ Soul Tape 3 Christmas morning), but in this spotlight, I’ma shine the light on a few under the radar singers depending who you ask.
Starting with BJ The Chicago Kid. The hometown crooner had a great 2013 and looks to end it the right way with the fullest Christmas project I’ve seen this past week. Stream his new A Soulful Christmas EP first below.
Adding to the unique Christmas projects is Nikki Jean and producer Double-0 (of Kidz In The Hall fame). They keep those with a short attention span satisfied with the new 3-track EP, Christmas Remastered. It reimagines classic Christmas tunes over the likes of OutKast, Jay Z, and DOOM. Instant *Tibs Fav. on the first two tracks so press play on that too.
Finally, I’ll spotlight a stand alone single: a Chicago singer you should get to know in Vince Nantes. “Home For Christmas” is a heartwarming track and *Tibs Fav. that I think your folks will enjoy as part of the Christmas playlist these next couple days. Download that to round out the post.
Have a safe, warm, and Merry Christmas out there! I’ll be checking in throughout with more cool updates during the Holiday.
