Musiq Soulchild is Back!

By Janera Fedrick

(Hollywood, CA) – Musiq Soulchild's new album, “LUVANMUSIQ”, has made an impressive debut at #1 on the Billboard 200, as well as taking the #1 spot on the “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” chart. In the first week, the album sold nearly 150,000 copies. This marks the soul icons Atlantic Records debut and the multi-platinum artist’s first new album in three years.

The blockbuster success of this album is fueled by the hit single “Buddy”. His hot new single, “Teach Me,” has just begun to impact radio. “LUVANMUSIQ” is a distinctly modern melding of ’70s soul, classic funk grooves with a hip-hop swagger. Musiq has successfully delivered an inspired album infused with honesty, emotion and soul. From the hip-hop-inflated chart-topping single “Buddy” to the stunningly beautiful “Teach Me” to the Stevie Wonderesque “Questions,” this album is a generous, open-armed declaration of the heart and soul.
