Just Friends (Sunny) by Musiq Soulchild Sotd 9

This is so awesome and expresses my feelings to meeting a new girl so well.  I just want to know your name and chill, Just Friends (Sunny) is just that song you approach the right girl with and just keep it real. Musiq is one of my favorites R&B and Soul singer of all time.  This song is such a classic and I will always remember and love.  Musiq lyrics is awesome.  Take a listen if you haven't heard this and enjoy the groove and take a listen his other great songs such as Dont Change, Buddy, Teach Me, and his new single from his new album On My Radio called So Beautiful.  Musiq is such a great artist.

Brief Bio:
Musiq was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is the eldest of nine children. At an early age, Musiq decided he would discontinue his high school education, and left home at 17. It was during that time Musiq started to build a reputation for being musically gifted, beat boxing for MC's, free styling on the open mic circuit, scatting at a jazz club, or just performing a cappella in the streets of Philadelphia, which is where he got the name "Musiq" and later added "Soulchild", which is intended to respect and represent the legacy and traditions of past soul artists. He cites as his inspiration such icons as Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Patti LaBelle, Billie Holiday, Sly & the Family Stone and Ray Charles.[1][2]

Musiq has also earned award nominations from Moard, BET, ASCAP, BMI, and Soul Train.[1]. Musiq Soulchild has had 2 platinum albums, 2 gold albums and 7 hit singles. He has received awards from BillbMTV, American Music Awards, NAACP, and 11 Grammy nominations, including 3 for his 2007 album Luvanmusiq. Besides being a successful recording artist, Musiq is notable for his creative and unique way of titling his albums and songs by ignoring the rules of capitalization, punctuation and spelling.[citation needed]

He is managed by Victor Grieg.[3]

Musiq Soulchild released his debut album, Aijuswanaseing, in 2000. Its lead single was "Just Friends (Sunny)". Musiq's second single "Love" spent 22 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

Musiq’s sophomore album, 2002's Juslisen, debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Charts and went platinum. The singles were "Halfcrazy" and "Dontchange".

In 2003, Musiq released his 3rd album, Soulstar. It included the singles "Forthenight" and "Whoknows".

Musiq took a four year break and changed his management to Solqi Management ; as well as his record label from Def Soul to Atlantic Records.

In March 2007, Musiq's released his fourth album Luvanmusiq. Its singles were "B.U.D.D.Y.", "Teachme", and "Makeyouhappy".

At his September 18 concert at the Warfield in San Francisco he announced his fifth album OnMyRadio. It was released on December 2, 2008. The lead single "Radio" was a complete contrast to the usual smooth soul and R&B Musiq fans were accustomed to. The following singles were the duet IfULeave featuring Mary J Blige; and the ballad SoBeautiful. "SoBeautiful" marked the first collaboration between Musiq and the producer JR Hutson, after Hutson had spent "about eight months" trying to get Musiq to come by his studio.[3] According to Hutson, the two plan to work together again.[3]
