Topic: Musiq Soulchild


In the News (Fri 24 Nov 17)

  
  CNN.com - Musiq wants people to 'Juslisen' - June 13, 2002
Musiq's debut was full of songs about all forms of love -- unrequited, unconditional and even unearned.
Musiq is currently criss-crossing the nation on tour.
Musiq: Music was always a part of my life; creativity has always been a part of my life as far back as I can remember.

Musiq Soulchild: Attempting to expand the vocabulary of his genre, with mixed results.
Aijuswanaseing, the debut album from Philadelphia's Musiq Soulchild, marks him as worth paying attention to, even if the record often slips a little too readily into contorted vocal gymnastics on an otherwise simple melody, or the pristine layered harmony -- two elements that have become all but the aural fingerprints of contemporary soul.
Most refreshing is Soulchild's obvious talent for writing songs that expand the vocabulary of the genre.

Musiq (hold the Soulchild) has put out a string of solid singles, but he's been criticized by some for using the boho look for credibility.
Musiq's first album is the best one he did, so your best bet is to stick with that (or maybe you should pick up Javier's album instead).
Musiq doesn`t follow the trend of hiring the hottest producers or the hottest rappers to be on his album like other R&B artist, he`s just himself.

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.
And, to be sure, it is that, a wonderfully romantic mood album, but it's more than that because Musiq has other skills besides crooning and keeping a mood.

 Musiq Soulchild kickin' it w/ Mental Satin
Musiq: Yeah, and I mean, you gotta understand that the record sounds perfect but, you know, it's kind of difficult to sing it like the record everyday.
Musiq: Well, each song has it's own space, and I try to make them just slightly different from the next song so that they can be appreciated in their own space.
Musiq: I think people are becoming much more conscious about the content of their songs and definitely that pertains to the words, because that makes up 50% of the song.

Musiq The former Soulchild has misspelled his way to the top of the charts Musiq -- whose second album, Juslisen, is currently at the top of the Billboard charts -- is arguably the best soul singer and worst speller since Prince rose to power.
The Philadelphia-born Musiq (who also answers to Taalib Johnson) first made his good name two years ago with his debut, Aijuswanasing -- an album whose sophisticated, spiritual and sexy blend of modern soul led critics to compare him to giants such as Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Al Green.
Still, remember that Soulchild is father to the Soulman.

Musiq even liberally interprets "Brown Sugar" on "L Is Gone", when the newcomer croons, "Skin caramel complexion/Lips chocolate brown" (D's version went "Skin is caramel with those cocoa eyes").
The 23-year-old Musiq is smart enough to have a couple of his musical predecessor's partners in his crew, like producer James Poyser and bassist Pino Palladino.
Aijuswanaseing is a casual yet valiant excursion that mirrors the many faces of a model swooner: a calm, cool, and collected attitude, mixed with a light sense of humor and a healthy serving of poise, swank, and sensitivity.

 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.

 Interview: Musiq Soulchild - Brief Article
The singer was born Talib Johnson, and proof that he warrants the new name resides in the rich, narrative grooves of his new disc, Aijuswanaseing (Def Soul)--that's I Just Wanna Sing, spelled out phonetically for the pronunciation-impaired.
The easy conversation of "Just Friends (Sunny)," his first single, offers a clear-sighted, contemporary approach to romantic possibilities; and, from its dreamy opening strains, "The Girl Next Door" sketches a vivid, bittersweet picture of childhood innocence and missed chances.
The eldest of nine kids, Musiq suffered typical adolescent angst, feeling restricted at home and patronized at school.
