Once he officially started his own career in the music industry, Michael went by the artist name “Q The Music.” Over the course of four years, he released countless singles, music videos and EPs until officially rebranding to Michael Q Trucks in April 2022. All of his prior singles were released under his “Q The Music” moniker, such as his first three singles entitled “Stay,” “Lost,” and “No Love.”
