Posted on

In celebration of E&J Brandy’s 40th anniversary, as well as its paralleling heritage with R&B, the brand launched a 10-part video series this spring called Generations of Soul. Musicians Raphael Saadiq, BJ the Chicago Kid, and Lee Fields have hosted discussions ranging from “What Is Soul?” to tales of their first concerts. (All past episodes can be viewed on the campaign’s website.) 

EW is exclusively premiering the “Musical Influences” segment, in which the three discuss where music first hit them—the choir, at home, the first time they heard Al Green, when they first heard about Jimi Hendrix, and more. The episode is streaming in its entirety below.
