Musiq’s 2002 album, Juslisen (Just Listen), debuted at number one on the Billboard charts and quickly went platinum with hit singles such as “Halfcrazy” and “Dontchange.” By the drop of his third album, Soulstar, in 2003, Musiq had established himself as one of the top R&B/Soul artists of his time. Soulstar included the hot singles “Forthenight” and “Whoknows.”
After a four-year break and a change in management, Musiq knew, in order for his success to continue, his sound would have to reflect his personal growth and journey.
