R&B singer BJ the Chicago Kid has sung on other artists’ records for more than a decade, and now they’re all returning the favor. The sexy debut album he released last month, In My Mind, features an impressive array of guest contributors, including Chance the Rapper, Big K.R.I.T. and Kendrick Lamar. Kendrick’s verse comes on “The New Cupid,” the video for which you can watch above.

But why only feature Kendrick when you can also bring in Hannibal Buress? The native Chicagoan comedian plays a lapsed Cupid in the video, more interested in drinking booze from a paper-wrapped bottle than helping the fighting couples around him make up. BJ is very clearly distressed by this, so he eventually turns to a sage Kendrick for comfort.
