Fresh off of the success of their single, “Feel the Fire,” R&B songbirds Syleena Johnson and Musiq Soulchild are prepping the release of their new album, 9INE.
The duo is going from the belts, runs, funky riffs and harmonies of R&B ballads to the percussion-heavy rhythmic spices of Caribbean reggae. Sounds odd? Well, here’s how it all happened.
“We were working on a compilation CD with a producer and we were both artists on the CD,” Syleena said. “He had the bright idea to put us both on a song and we got the bright idea like, ‘Ay, why don’t we do an album together?’” Musiq continued. “And now here we are on the 9INE project, shooting a video,” Syleena finished.
