Musiq Soulchild BB Kings Oct 2015


The legendary Musiq Soulchild has released eight solo albums to date and is clearly one of the standout artists of his generation. With many timeless hits and countless impactful songs over the past two decades, putting together this list is not an easy task.

We look to identify the singles and album cuts that were the most impactful and still stand the test of time. We also made sure to include a ton of honorable mention picks since it’s really not fair to end it as just ten. As you’ll see from our list, there are so many songs in this discography that deserve recognition.

As we’ve done with artists in our Top 10 Best Lists before, we really study the catalog of an artist to draw a conclusion on the best they have to offer. As always, let us know where you agree or disagree!
