PRESS RELEASE STATEMENT:

Nashville, TN (September 28, 2016) – Derek Minor teams with BJ the Chicago Kid for “Until I’m Gone,” the third single from Minor’s sixth album, Reflection, out on Minor’s Reflection Music Group/eOne Music on October 14, and now available for pre-order on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon

On the song, Derek Minor raps about remembering his roots and being thankful for his success. He rhymes, “This for my people that struggle to pay off they light bill / In they heart man they wonder if Christ real / Or the next meal / I can tell you how that life feel.” BJ the Chicago Kid lends his infectious soulful voice on the chorus.

The clip directed by Will Thomas features throwback video of Minor rapping when he was a young teen, as well as new footage filmed in New York and Tennessee. “We wanted to convey that down to earth feeling,” Minor says. “No matter how high I go, I got to stay grounded. We shot some scenes where I grew up in Tennessee. I wanted it to be a family affair with people I grew up with.”

Minor has been a fan of BJ the Chicago Kid since he saw the talented singer performing on BET’s Music Matters stage. “He’s been the soul voice of our generation,” Minor says. “He’s so versatile. Plus, he’s just a cool cat. I love that about him.”

The “Until I’m Gone” audio recently premiered on RESPECT. “Until I’m Gone” follows the new digital single “Look at Me Now,” available on iTunes, and “You Know It,” the album’s first single and video. The video premiered on HipHopDX.

Minor’s last two albums, 2015’s Empire and 2013’s Minorville, reached No. 6 on Billboard’s Rap Albums chart.
