CJ Hilton "We Can Get it In"

When CJ Hilton dropped his first mixtape, The Package, earlier this year, it was thrilling to hear the young R&B singer, who grew up on classic soul and previously collaborated with Raphael Saadiq and Stevie Wonder, try and sound more his age with a hip-hop-influenced production. And "We Can Get It In" was an immediate standout, with a dazzlingly swirly texture of a beat by Don Cannon, the mixtape DJ best known for producing Young Jeezy's "Go Crazy." But it wasn't until CJ performed the song as part of a showcase of new artists at June's BET Awards that we realized it could be his breakout hit.
