After a decade of R&B success, Musiq Soulchild aims to conquer rap.
The hitmaker revealed his rap alter ego, The Husel, in July during a NYC live performance. Last week, Aug. 11, he shared with Madame Noir that the choice to reinvent his music was the result of music listeners clamoring for hip-hop driven sounds.
He continued to share that R&B is "struggling right now" and popular taste has shifted toward hip-hop. "I like to entertain people according to what they're saying entertains them. As an artist, musician, songwriter and producer, I sit back and hear it, and… if that's what ya'll like, I can do that."
