First Impressions: The Magic, The Musiq and "Anything"

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Been jumping this since Monday, but now finally getting a chance to put my thoughts down about this here collaboration between Musiq and Swizz Beatz, which I instantly liked on first listen. That Central Line "Walking Into Sunshine" sample (great rarity) has a bit to do with it, but I particularly like how seeped in the spirit of early 80's funk "Anything" is. It feels sort of like The Fatback Band's infectious "I Found Lovin'" with a little slab of Cameo on the side. Real nice summery groove this has that instantly warms my winter up.   This is not only Swizz Beatz second entry for his Monster Mondays project, but the kick-off for Musiq's upcoming album, TheMagicTheMusic. As much as I like a bulk of the material Musiq puts out ("So Beautiful" in 2008 was just so insanely wonderful...), if TheMagicTheMusic continues with this synthesized-80's funk revival sound, Musiq will most definitely have a listener with me. Lend your ears to the track and snag it for yourself below, if you already haven't done so.
