Neo-Soul music definitely has a sound like no other. Just how they incorporate different genres such as jazz, hip-hop, and blues is incredible. During the late 90s through the 2000s, neo-soul dominated the music scene. You could turn on almost any R&B radio station and music channels from the likes of BET, MTV, and VH1 to hear music and see videos from artists such as Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, India Arie, Angie Stone, D’Angelo, Maxwell, Musiq Soulchild and Anthony Hamilton. Such an amazing time for music. R&B legends Musiq Soulchild and Anthony Hamilton will hit for hit in the latest Verzuz battle. Fans of Neo-Soul are rejoicing because this is the matchup that they have been waiting for, and it’s becoming a reality!! 

Musial Soulchild took to social media to share the exciting news. He posted a photo on his Instagram page with the caption. “You Asked & We Heard You!
