Philly singer-songwriter Musiq Soulchild is one of the nice guys of the soul scene, and the type who promises to be faithful to his girl, knowing he's not "Single" and offering to be her "Medicine." He carries his sixth album Musiqinthemagic with those sentiments, whether it's the electro-boogie fission of "Likethesun" or the throwback popcorn soul of "Lovecontract." Even his successful attempt at club crossover via "Anything," which incorporates a Swizz Beats rap and a sample of Central Line's "Walking into Sunshine," sounds like an invitation to pressure-free fun instead of a lewd come-on.
