Good news: Musiq Soulchild is making new music.
Odd news: Musiq Soulchild isn’t Musiq Soulchild anymore, he’s an alter ego of the Philly native known as The Husel.
So what does that mean? Well, from the sounds of things, you can kiss the neo-soul melodies you’ve come to love from Musiq goodbye and hopefully embrace the new southern hip-hop, modern R&B infused flavor of his first mixtape, “Husel Music,” which will be released this month. As you can imagine, when we heard this news we had quite a few questions about this change and we’re pretty sure you do too. So, check out the interview above with The Husel as he explains his new direction musically, and clears up a few rumors about his personal life with “R&B Divas Atlanta” star Meelah Williams and their child. Are you checking for The Husel?
