Musiq Soulchild - On My Radio

Symptoms for the following CD include: bleeding ears, eagerness to press eject and feeling pain as you continue to hear this.

Having gone platinum and being a Billboard Chart #1 in 2002 with his album, Juslisen, Musiq Soulchild aka Taalib Johnson, wants the world to know his here to stay.

"Back again" is a torturous beginning to the CD and makes you wonder whether this will be a hit or a miss on his hands. Having recently performed at the Antigua & Barbuda first Romantic Rhythms Music Festival with the likes of legendary artists such as Kenny Rogers, Brian McKnight, Lionel Richie, Keyshia Cole, Maxi Priest, Destra, Heather Headly, Shaggy and many other local artists from the island including The Burning Flames, this dude might have performed with big names but they’re so far beyond his means.

I’m not sure if Mary J. Blige felt sorry for him but she saves him on "If you leave" where he basically pleads a girl not to leave him as he definitely seems full of it, full of it and arrogant, arrogant” (as Mary highlights in the song). But then after pleading for dear life for the girl not to break up with him, he then does the opposite on "Dear John" and breaks up with the girl over the phone. Talk about inappropriate and cheesy.

But wait…don’t go ejecting that CD just yet, doing a really bad rap, he teams up Jamaican brother, Damian Marley on "I wannabe". Being the son of Bob Marley, Damian knows what his doing and just maybe can give him some pointers.


Do you remember way back in the 90s when R&B was easy on the ears and soulful smoothies like Tevin Campbell and Babyface were seducing the ladies? Well there was a reason why they had hits. Their music was actually good.

I don't know what cd "you" were listening to, but "On My Radio" an excellent cd. Granted My Radio may not have been a typical Musiq track, but all and all this was a GREAT cd.

'On My Radio' is nothing short of a brilliant CD. If you don't understand a genre and can't review it objectively, then please don't resort to writing utter nonsense about it. Clearly the internet bailed you out in the little and most insignificant information that you acquired about him. There's so much more to Musiq Soulchild - in fact although he's still forging mainstream success he's got a huge following simply because he's in a league of his own. They call it TALENT. Next time you're asked to review something and you feel it's beyond you or you're not really up for it. Put it aside and grab something else you're more informed about! URGH!
