Musiq Soulchild Drops Two Videos: ‘Start Over’ and ‘Simple Things’

Musiq Soulchild has released visuals for his first two singles (“Start Over” and “Simple Things”) from his upcoming album, Feel the Real. 

In the video for “Start Over,” which features a guest appearance from former 702 lead singer Meelah, Musiq gets another shot at love.

“‘Start Over’ is something like a ‘what if” scenario,” says Musiq. “Everyone has their own ‘the one that got away’ story, maybe they or you found someone else, maybe too much time has passed, maybe for whatever reasons things just didn’t work out. Now imagine for a moment you had the chance to try again… how would you ‘Start Over?'”

In “Simple Things,” Musiq learns how to appreciate the little things in life that people sometimes overlook.

“‘Simple Things’ is about waking up, breathing fresh air, drinking clean water, eating good food, having a comfortable place to sleep, spending time with people who make you happy, and instead of stressing over things you don’t have, just remembering to be grateful for what you do,” says Musiq.

Feel the Real will release this September on Entertainment One.

Mary J. Blige Talks ‘Mudbound’ Film with Tracee Ellis Ross

Mary J. Blige visited Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night to promote her role in the Netflix film, Mudbound.

The 46-year-old singer shared tons of laughs with guest host Tracee Ellis Ross, as she answered random questions on whether she prefers a window seat or aisle seat on flights, if she ever Googles herself and her favorite superhero.

Following the icebreakers, Blige switched gears and discussed her role in Mudbound. “It’s really a powerful film and there is a happy ending,” she said. “It’s a very relative story to today as well because a lot of people don’t seem to get the memo that we are free. We’re all free. All nationalities. We’re free.”

Blige also talked about the 25th anniversary of her debut album What’s the 411? She recalled her early memories of coming to Hollywood that era. “Then I came back to shoot the “I’m Going Down” video for the My Life album,” said Blige.
