Meet Musiq Soulchild’s Alter-Ego Purple Wondaluv [ALBUM REVIEW]
Posted on July 5, 2015
Musiq Soulchild was one of the biggest faces in the neo-soul movement of the early-2000s. His soaring falsetto and straight to the heart compositions on tracks like “Love” and “Don’t Change” defined soul music for the era. And now that the sound of music has changed, Musiq has adopted alter egos to adapt.
Now releasing music independently under his own Soul Star Music Company, Soulchild is using alter-egos as a means for serving different musical stylings. The first was The Husel, a rapper, with the release of a self-titled, auto-tune heavy mixtapelast year. His newest persona Purple Wondaluv is a singer that is all about faith, courage, and growth. If you don’t fall in love with Purple Wondaluv, no worries; the singer is already in the studio working on a new Musiq Soulchild album. However, his new release The Eternal Peace EP, an uncharacteristically inspirational opus and triumph of instrumentation, is something you should definitely open your ears for.
