With an album every 2 years average, Musiq is one of the most consistent of his “neo soul” contemporaries. Landing squarely on the scene in 2000 with the infectious, soul drenched sing a long Just Friends (Sunny), Musiq has also ventured the farthest into pop/R&B/commercial territory than his peers. This approach has apparently served him well, as the industry has bestowed upon him numerous awards and he maintains a solid fanbase.
One thing that has remained consistent though, since his entry onto our collective musical landscapes are the choice samples selected regardless of genre.
