Musiq (formerly Musiq Soulchild) returns with his sophomore release, Juslisen (meaning just listen), and this collection of songs is more than worth listening to.

Their music helped Musiq feel more confident in his own music and it helped him keep pushing on to get to where he is today.

 Entertaining no sweat for Musiq
Musiq's music falls into the category of “natural” R&B, a media-created genre that in Musiq's case is a nice way of saying he's greatly indebted to '70s soul, especially Stevie Wonder.
Wonder's singing voice is singular; Musiq's is rather generic, and any of his three back-up singers could have probably blown him off the stage vocally given the chance.
Musiq seemed to know this, and in turn played to his strengths, none of which he himself possessed.

On his second album, Juslisen, Musiq -- who has dropped the "(Soulchild)" surname -- delivers on the promise of his debut, turning in a slyly assured, smoothly sexy collection of neo-soul.
One of the most appealing things about Musiq is that he never oversells his songs, never indulges in hyperbolic screams or exaggerated grunts and moans.
Aijuswanaseing is a remarkable collection of songs that successfully showcases Soulchild's vocal talent and versatility as he crisscrosses the analogous styles of RandB, soul, and rap.

Recording as usual, in his hometown of Philadelphia, Musiq with his writing partner Carvin Haggins and his producer Ivan Barias, the trio known as Car Mu I, have gone so far beyond the tag "neo-soul" on SOULSTAR, you almost forget their previous collaborations, 2000's Aijuswanaseing and 2002's Juslisen defined that genre.
Musiq approaches "reasons" with the same blunt clarity, a song dedicated to music itself - the healing life force that's guided him when he's needed light, saved him when he's needed salvation, embraced him when no one else could.
Musiq embraces questions of uncertainty and vulnerability that come with new relationships.

 Musiq (Soulchild) : Aijuswanaseing - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Aijuswanaseing is a remarkable collection of songs that successfully showcases Soulchild's vocal talent and versatility as he crisscrosses the analogous styles of R&B, soul, and rap.
The slow-paced wonder quality of "143" echoes a snippet of the style of fellow soul sista Erykah Badu (not a surprise since Musiq lists her high on his list of influences).
There is also an apparent hint of the likes of Soulchild's idol Stevie Wonder in the rhythmic finger-snapping beat and experimental vocal riffs on "143," serving as evidence that Soulchild's voice is strong enough to stand on its own.

 Musiq Soulchild: Aijuswanaseing - PopMatters Music Review
From that city and top of the pile, for at least this this month, is the already hotly-tipped Musiq Soulchild with a debut album that is firmly in the post-D'Angelo mould but distinctive enough to merit the praise that is being heaped upon him by most commentators.
All the ingredients we have come to expect from the male wing of the "organic" end of R&B are present -- strong '70s flavours, a Stevie Wonder-based vocal style, loosely structured songs, a deliberate distancing from the cliches of pop-R&B and a dab of jazz.
Less poetic with a capital P, less political with or without the capital, these songs of growing-up, relationships, love and sex have a sincerity and a conviction that are light years away from the bragging and boasting that have come to dominate the male R&B repertoire.

 Musiq remains true to soul music | The San Diego Union-Tribune
The songwriting on "SoulStar," which Musiq shares with longtime collaborator Carvin Haggins, and the production, led by another longtime friend, Ivan Barias, remain strong.
Musiq (born Taalib Johnson) has always been about telling a story.
That album, Musiq's debut, went platinum, earned several awards and established the artist, then known as Musiq Soulchild, as a leader in neo-soul –; a marketing label now unpopular with young soul artists who believe it limits their audience.

 Barnes & Noble.com - Music: Soulstar, Musiq, CD
Unlike his peers, however, the artist formerly known as Musiq Soulchild also enjoys playing with words: After titling his first two albums Ajuswanaseing and Juslisen, respectively, he's dubbed his third disc Soulstar.
Wonder or as singular a voice as his fearless peer Bilal (with whom Musiq duets on "Dontstop"), Musiq shows artistic growth with each effort.
Though the steady development of Musiq's songwriting and vocal skills is a major draw as ever, his greatest charm is that he never puts on airs -- he never hides behind a persona or affectations, which gives him a sense of intimacy that many of his contemporaries lack.
