50. AYEJUSWANSEING (2000)
Artist: Musiq Soulchild
Production: Dre & Vidal, Carvin & Ivan
Acclaim: Over sunny neo-soul grooves, Musiq’s vocals make love sound so innocently simple on songs like the nostalgic “Girl Next Door” and okie-doke pickup anthem “Just Friends.”
Peak moment: A cliched concept becomes a matrimonial favorite on “Love,” thanks to sentimental lyrics and Soulchild’s delicate falsetto.
