Philadelphia-born artist Musiq Soulchild is back this week with “Life On Earth,” the follow up to his last solo album “MusicInTheMagiq” released in 2011. Five years later and after a reggae-inspired duets project entitled “9ine” with Chicagoan Syleena Johnson in 2013, the soul/R&B crooner with that unforgettable tone and incredible stories of the highs and lows of relationships is back to season the spring and summer with a little more love.
Musiq Soulchild, an 11-time Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter, has been quietly working between his hometown and his most recent city of inspiration Atlanta, GA on “Life On Earth” during his time away from the spotlight, but his welcome return is proof of the reason why he rose to become one of neo-soul’s most influential voices. Featuring the lead single”I Do,” a catchy midtempo groove about the trust factors within a relationship, the deluxe version of the “Life On Earth” album also offers two bonus tracks plus a dose of pop-leaning selections that should guarantee Musiq Soulchild’s prominence at radio.
Do yourself a favor and pick up Musiq Soulchild’s “Life On Earth” and enjoy this hand-holding set of soul music at its best.
