CHCKLK – “Young Boy”
When someone says their music is alternative R&B these days, it turns me off. But, CHCKLK’s “Young Boy” is so much more than another Weeknd rip-off. The NY native offers a truly deep take on this subdued soul record, explaining his difficult upbringing and planning a rise from the ashes. My only qualm? I have no idea how to pronounce dude’s name.
