I like Musiq Soulchild, but looking at a few of his biggest hits over the last eight years, I realize there is a certain consistency regarding subject matter:
1. Just Friends (“You ain’t even really got to be my girlfriend”)
2. B.U.D.D.Y. (“A buddy is a buddy that don’t be complainin when his or her buddy ain’t the buddy they came with”)
3. Forthenight (“Now I know I’m not your man… but let’s just act like it’s that way tonight”)
I made a cover of Forthenight for today’s beat, with some voiceover help from my non-doctor roommate. I think it was actually this song that got me really into that fuzzy/sawwy bass I love so much. You can check out the original version here. I wish the whole video were just him doing his low-key dancing in front of the black background.
