Musiq Soulchild Interview: Introduces Protege Willie Hyn, Talks New Music, Regaining Passion
After a lengthy layoff from the Musiq Soulchild brand over the past several years, the singer returned with a vengeance last year with the great album “Life on Earth” and tour that followed. Although he took some time to pursue his true passions through alternate personas, he’s recently been rejuvenated, and now we know why. Meet Willie Hyn, a dope new artist who Musiq signed to his label and who has helped keep him inspired like he hasn’t been in years. The pair have been collaborating frequently in the past few years, including on Musiq’s latest release, and also on Hyn’s “13 Roses” project. It’s an exciting time for both, and this is just the start. We sat down with the pair following their performance at our Sol Village r&b show in NYC and discussed how the collaborations began, the new music we can expect from Musiq Soulchild, Willie Hyn’s artistry, and much more.
