Philadelphia R&B/soul singer Musiq Soulchild has a way with words. It’s not just his lush, lovely, red-velvet-cupcake voice—it’s his album and song titles (see MusiqInTheMagiq, OnMyRadio, “Sayido” and “Deserveumore”). Like romance, his favorite subject, Musiq’s got a language all his own. Show up on time and catch two more of the city’s finest vocal talents: Vivian Green and Bilal.
