If you could be one singer in the entertainment business, who would you be? My answer is easy. I would be Musiq Soulchild. His subject matter and singing style speaks to my heart. His cool demeanor and vibe fits my personality perfectly. To some people, Philly's own Musiq Soulchild (aka Taalib Johnson) is another unknown music artist. To me, Musiq is one of the greatest R&B/Soul singers of our generation. ICYMI, let me put you on game so you can properly recognize this gifted brother.
Over the years, Musiq has blessed the world with the following: Two platinum albums (Aijuswanaseing and Juslisen - my personal favorite). Two gold albums (Soulstar and Luvanmusiq). Eight top 10 R&B singles. Winner of numerous awards (Billboard/BET/ASCAP/BMI/Soul Train). 11 Grammy nominations. Musiq also wrote a book about love and relationships titled "143 - Love According To Musiq."
On April 15th, Musiq will release his seventh solo album/eight studio album, "Life on Earth." The 14-track album is his first album on eONe/My Block Inc, after a long run with Def Soul and Arista Records. Life on Earth is executive produced by Warryn Campbell.
If you can't wait until April 15th, iTunes and Pandora have special treats for you. On iTunes, you can pre-order the album and download three new tracks, including his latest hit, "I Do." With Pandora, you can actually stream the entire project. Musiq has teamed up with Pandora, under their "Pandora Premieres" series, an album streaming program they offer for their subscribers before the album releases.
Speaking of "I Do," please be sure to check out the animation video that showcases the animation wizardry of Saginaw native Sean Mack. I've known Sean since Bethel Day Care days and it's truly amazing to see his work all over the world. Keep grinding and kudos to you, fam!
So, if you like quality R&B music, support my guy Musiq Soulchild. I'm glad to see him back in the music game. Good luck on your first week sales. You've been missed, sir.
