The Chicago native took full advantage of his allotted time by packing nine songs into his 17-minute performance. BJ brought the soul to cuts deeper into his discography like “Church,” but also fast-forwarded to close out with the tender “Too Good,” which appeared on his 1123 album, released this summer.
The 34-year-old wasted no time in introducing members of his five-piece live band he brought along with him to complement his luscious vocals inbetween tracks. He even relayed that NPR said he possibly broke a record with his nine-song medley performance. “Heard I got the record for most songs performed in under 15mins on @npr’s Tiny Desk,” the Motown artist wrote.
BJ gets back on the road later this month with The 1123 Tour, which resumes in St. Louis on Nov. 22.
