I don't know what rock I was under to have missed the release of Musiq's video for "Silky Soul," but thanks to watching endless hours of VH1 Soul this past weekend I got to see it a few times. A track from last year's excellent Silky Soul Music: An All-Star Tribute to Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly, Musiq vocally did his duty in paying homage to both Frankie Beverly and Marvin Gaye, who the song was originally written about, and the video reps for both with its throwback vibe. Musiq and his tuxedoed four-piece band perform the song on a '60s-styled variety show, which is funny to me since Maze released "Silky Soul" the song and album of the same name in 1989. Nonetheless, this is a pretty good video for a very enjoyable song that will have you wanting to find a dance partner to step with ASAP.
