Musiq Soulchild’s new project Musiqinthemagiq is set to hit stores next Tuesday (May 3). In the case there still needs to be some selling to get you to the record store or iTunes, the Philly singer let loose of another track from said project. “dowehaveto” is a ballad anyone who has ever witnessed a relationship crumble before their own eyes can attest to. Over the somber backdrop, Soulchild laments his pain and regret with lines like “I just wanna be with the girl I fell in love with” and “Tell me why we gotta suffer ’cause you can’t just chill.” This is quintessential Musiq meaning the song may not be high on pop appeal, yet the quality of the songwriting allows it to stand out from the pack. Listen to what he’s saying. That’s going to hit too close to home for a lot of people out there.
