In his decade long career, Philadelphia native Musiq Soulchild has a great, if often overlooked, body of work. It all started with his 2000 debut "Aijuswanaseing", he crafted a stellar successful debut- despite his ties to Def Jam Recordings. Not that it was a bad label, but at the time Def Jam had a long history of underpromoting its R&B acts (Remember Alyson Williams, The Black Flames, Tashan, Playa or Case?). He followed that album up with his 2002 sophomore album "Juslisen" and a year later with the criminally underrated "Soulstar". While he was on the rise, his label was on the decline as far as promotion... so he wanted off the label. In 2006, he was placed in a unique label trade off between himself and rapper Fabolous- with Def Jam's Musiq Soulchild going to Atlantic, while Atlantic's Fabolous went to Def Jam. After a four year hiatus, he resumed his career with his first album for Atlantic- 2007's "Luvanmusiq", followed a year later with the experimental "OnMyRadio". After laying low for a few years, he returned with his sixth recording, "Musiqinthemagiq".

One thing that's obvious about the record is the noticeable absence of his longtime producers Ivan "Orthodox" Barias & Carvin "Ransum" Haggins. They have been replaced by Wyclef Jean's producing partner Jerry "Wonda" Duplessis, who produces much of the album- including the first single, the Swizz Beatz featured "Anything". Producer Lil' Ronnie produces the uptempo song "Single", a song about Musiq stuck in the dilemma of meeting an unattached woman while he's in a relationship. Swedish production team Element handles two songs- the ballad "Yes" as well as the 60's inspired "Lovecontract".

I preface this review by saying that I have been a Musiq Soulchild fan from day one. I stuck by him when he dropped the Soulchild, and didn't think less of him when he picked it back up. Musiqinthemagiq is not one of my favorite albums. I can pick songs from the album that I can listen to a couple of times, but nothing that moves me like SoBeautiful (Onmyradio), Onenight & Previouscats (Juslisen), Love & 143 (Aijuswannseing), Lullabye & Today (Luvanmusiq), and Whoknows (Soulstar). I would rank this album as a tie for last place with Soulstar. If you're a Musiq fan, then definitely buy this album, but if you kind of like him, then you can pass. You're not missing out on anything.

I have been following Musiq Soulchild since Aijuswanaseing. It is without question, that the brother has talent and great vocal skills! Even though, Musiqinthemagiq is reminiscient of his last album, OnMyRadio, you will quickly catch yourself jamming to likethesun, yes, waitingstill, silver&gold and my favorite, sayido. If you like good grown-up music, for the soul, definitely cop this album!

Musiq Soulchild has delivered beautiful melodies and lyrics since his debut album and it doesn't stop here. He just continues to stay relevant and modern but remaining true to his artistry with well-written and meaningful lyrics. The production here is a little different but is not lacking at all. The only song I don't really like is Anything produced by Swizz Beatz because his sound is so overused.
Other than that this album is lovely from start to finish. The standouts are: Sayido, waitingstill, backtowhere, dowehaveto, yes and goodgirl (bonus track).

I hope this album does well. :)

I have always been a huge fan of Musiq and unlike most artist with each cd he really seems to put his all into it. His songs really touch me and I can really relate to what he's singing about. Though I have all of his albums and love a bunch of songs off of each one and have played each one on heavy rotation; this one is so mature in the area of love. It is nice to know that men feel like women on certain subjects. These are my favorite songs:

1. backtowhere
2. dowehaveto
3. befriends
4. Yes
5. Medicine

These songs is where I'm at in my life, especially "befriends"

Thanks, Musiq, for daring to be different and write real music each and every time. Take your time in between albums if that's what it takes to keep expressing yourself the way that you do. You are the best and your voice is beautiful; a blend of old and new together.

Musiq Soulchild has been one of the more consistent R&B/Neo-Soul singers of the last decade. And the reason for that is probably beccause he has a neo-soul style, but he incorporates contemporary R&B touches into his music as well, where as most neo-soul singers stick to that sub genre, Musiq knows how to balance the two extremely well. And Musiqinthemagiq is just another continuation of his already bolstering discography. While the album is definitely far from his best, it's still a typical Musiq album for the most part. The only really big change in style on this album is that he works with some brand new producers that he's never worked with before. There's not one producer on this album that's produced on any of his other albums. Which is a gift and a curse kind of. I always liked the producers he worked with before, (Mainly Carvin & Ivan, and Warryn Campbell) especially when he would switch it up and throw a big name in the mix like the Underdogs or Neff U. But on Musiqinthemagiq, he switches it up completely by enlisting a completely new crew of producers, Jerry Wonda being the executive producer. Because of this, Musiqinthemagiq does have a different style than his previous albums, Musiq himself called this album his most radio friendly album to date and most commercial record. And while part of that is true, due to songs like the funky first single "Anything" and the mid tempo contemporary track "Single", or the mid tempo banger "Backtowhere" which could have been on any Trey Songz or Chris Brown album, the album still has the genuine gentleman R&B feel that all of his previous albums do. There is still plenty of vintage Musiq on this album, like the mid tempo ode to marriage "Sayido", which reminds me a lot of "Teachme".Read more ›
