Recorded at Home Cookin' Studio, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

"Forthenight" was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance.

For Musiq, soul is everything. From his former professional surname, Soulchild, to his third record's title, SOULSTAR, and even an album photo that features him wearing a T-shirt reading "Soul Rebel," Musiq makes it abundantly clear that soul is his driving force. Not surprisingly, SOULSTAR lives up to its name, as Musiq locks into a series of tight grooves and lets his smooth voice carry the tunes.

The opening title track begins with some deft scratching and a delicate string backing that gives way to Musiq's velvety croon and Carol Riddick's old-school R&B vocal refrain. On "Womanopoly," Musiq's lyrics cleverly riff on the real estate board game and coast over a strolling beat. Perhaps most impressively, the vocalist pulls off an inventive cover of the Rolling Stones' "Miss You" that shuffles along to a dynamic arrangement. Producing albums this enjoyably consistent is proof positive of this SOULSTAR's staying power.
