Since When?.....(September Edition)
Since when did Neo-Soul front man Musiq Soulchild pattern his music after Lloyd and Usher?
I am sorely disappointed in this track. I own every album of Musiq's and, unlike this single, he didn't come close to using the words "aye" and "fresh".....whattheworld?????
It seems no genre is safe from the green-hued influence of mainstream. I guess Musiq got tired of his subtle status and decided to make something for the kids. I thought that he was above self-promotion and possessed conviction about the music he creates....silly me....
After watching it the first time...this video is truly upsetting. Second time around, my ears naturally place him into the category of the likes of Usher. Possessing nothing more than marketability. An entertainer.
But someone that I wouldn't pay $100 for a concert ticket.
Next up: Summer 2009 tour with Solider Boy.
