Stream Musiq Soulchild’s New Double Album ‘Feel The Real’

Music Soulchild has officially released his double disc album Feel The Real.

In an interview with HipHollywood, Musiq explained the inspiration behind his new album. “I kinda wanted to do the whole ‘Feel the Real’ thing because this love thing, this romance thing, this relationship thing, this interpersonal intimate thing we deal with it’s all about how you feel. You can’t think your way through it,” he said.

This is Musiq’s eighth solo studio album, first arriving on the music scene with Aijuswanaseing in 2000. The project includes features from fellow R&B singer Marsha Ambrosius and SoulStar signee Willie Hyn, as well as previously released songs “Simple Things,” “Humble Pie,” and “Sooner or Later.” His current single “Start Over” sits at No. 14 on the Urban AC chart this week.

Listen to Justin Love’s New EP ‘When Love Returns’

Rising singer Justin Love has released his new EP When Love Returns.

The nine-track offering, which features no guest appearances, is packed with radio-friendly melodies and laid back vibes. The project includes previously released tracks “Models” and “Bed Springs,” which has an accompanying visual. He even gives us a taste of his iSingHipHop, an alter ego he cites as his “bread and butter.”

In April, Love shared with Rated R&B the stories he wanted to tell on his new EP. “When Love Returns is literally the return of love,” he said. “I haven’t dropped material in a good two or three years because of a situation I was in. I was legally tied to working with other people I didn’t want to work with. I couldn’t blatantly say that to my fans, though. I could only hint that towards them at least at that time.”

He added, “Now, I can say whatever I want. I was just legally bound to people. When Love Returns is just the return of me showing the world that I’ve been working and I’m here to stay. I’m going to give a bunch of different vibes. They’re going to get a little iSingHipHop, which is my hip hop-singing shit.”

Love is currently working on his debut album, which will be released independently. He plans to support the album with a tour.

Listen to Marsha Ambrosius’ New Ballad ‘Old Times’

After getting adjusted to motherhood, Marsha Ambrosius awakens with a socially-charged ballad titled “Old Times.”

On the DJ Camper-produced track, Ambrosius sings her heart out as she reminsces about the good days with a loved one who lost their life to gun violence.

“Just like old times, just wanna love you right / Love you with all my might, love you for life,” she sings. “Just like old times, just wanna hold you tight / Love you with all might, love you for life.”

Ambrosius also premiered the music video for “Old Times,” enlisting Cricket (Larick Mathews) as director. The stirring video, which stars her daughter Nyla and real-life boyfriend, addresses police shootings of unarmed black men.

“Old Times” is set to appear on her forthcoming album, NYLA, which is named after her daughter. Speaking on the new album, which features production from Focus, Stereotypes, Harmony Samuels, Ambrosius says, “From beginning to end, it’s me letting go of everything I wanted to let go of in my life and experiencing things all over again through Nyla’s eyes. I had a lot of pent up energy, and channeling all of the energy into the music is what helped save my sanity. Poems turned into melodies and then a bunch of songs, which was like my personal therapy in a sense.”

This isn’t the first time Ambrosius has dedicated recordings to her first child. In 2017, she celebrated her the birth of Nyla with two sweet lullabies “Luh Ya,” and “Don’t Wake the Baby.”

NYLA comes nearly four years after her sophomore album, Friends & Lovers.
