Musiq Soulchild Net Worth $8 Million

To begin with, Soulchild grew up in Philadelphia, and even as a teenager he had made up a plan to become a professional musician, which later evolved into a very successful career resulting in millions in the total size of Musiq Soulchild’s net worth.

Entitled “Aijuswanaseing”, Musiq released his debut album at the end of 2000, which was equally well received by critics and audiences. After selling more than 1.8 million albums, he was treated to a platinum record award. The extractions “Just Friends”, “Love” and “Girl Next Door” appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Hot R & B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks. With the follow-up album “Juslisen” (2002) he would repeat this success, as it topped the Billboard USA album charts and also went platinum; the hit singles “Halfcrazy” and “dontchange” were also included on this album. In 2003, Soulchild released the album “Soul Star” which was indeed less successful than its predecessor, but also managed to enter the US music charts, and sales figures still rated a gold record. The songs “Forthenight” and “Whoknows” appeared on the pop and R & B/Hip-Hop charts.

Afterwards, Soulchild took a three year creative break. During this time he left the record label Def Jam and moved to Atlantic Records. In the beginning of 2007, under the title “Luvanmusiq” he released his fourth album, which was again No. 1 on the Billboard charts, and for which he received his second gold record. The extractions “Buddy” and “TeachMe” are other hits among others on top of the 10 R & B/Hip-Hop charts. The following studio album “OnMyRadio” (2008) and the singles contained on it “IfULeave”, “Radio” and “Sobeautiful” were commercial successes for Musiq Soulchild which increased the net worth of the singer considerably. The same year he also released the EP “A Philly Soul Christmas” with seven Christmas songs, including “Jingle Bells”, “O Holy Night”, “O Christmas Tree” and “The First Noel”. In 2011, the singer released the album “Musiqinthemagiq” which continued the successful extractions “Yes” and “Anything” which also appeared on the Soul Childs in the R & B/Hip-Hop charts. In 2013, he released the album “9ine” with Syleena Johnson which did not fulfil expectations and managed to reach only lower positions on the R & B charts. Recently, he released “Life on Earth” (2016) album. To cut the long story short, Soulchild won the awards from the American Society of Composers, Billboard, Authors and Publishers, BET, BMI and Soul Train.

Finally, the personal life of the singer, he has been in partnership with Kameela Williams since 2009.
