Musiq Soulchild – “Alphabet”
So now we have an official album cover AND a new single for Musiq’s upcoming album MUSIQINTHEMAGIQ, which is due to hit stores May 3rd.
In terms of this spelling gimmick, I’m tired of it. In terms of this song, it’s really not even that good sadly. It sounds rushed, Musiq’s voice doesn’t feel at home with this track, and while the idea behind the lyrics is admirable, it doesn’t feel natural. I feel like Musiq is getting backed into this uptempo corner by SOMEBODY and he doesn’t sound good in it at all. Musiq’s voice feels awkward for the majority of this track.
I guess my issue isn’t with his voice, but once again, it’s a travesty when bad material happens to good artists. It’s getting harder and harder to form an opinion about albums based on the singles these days though, so I will reserve my comments until we get a chance to hear the whole album.
Are you a Musiq fan that is feeling all these new songs? Or are you scratching your head as well?
