Check out a sneak peak of Miguel‘s ‘How Many Drinks?’ remix video with Kendrick Lamar.
The full video is slated to premiere later this month.
Miguel has been named of the top “Artists” on TIMEâ€™s â€ś100 Most Influential People In The Worldâ€ť List.
Recently, when singer-songwriter-producer Miguel performed on Saturday Night Live, Mariah Carey sent an ebullient tweet: â€śslam dunk. R&B is alive!â€ť That statement is not as simple as it might sound. The survival of the black pop tradition isnâ€™t just a matter of preserving its history â€” although Miguel does that too: the soul seducerâ€™s Grammy-winning hit single â€śAdornâ€ť ingeniously evokes Marvin Gayeâ€™s â€śSexual Healingâ€ť and â€śLetâ€™s Get It On.â€ť What has nourished that tradition over the past 70 years, though â€” what has kept it not just alive but thriving â€” is what makes Miguelâ€™s recent music so special: constant innovation, formal daring, unexpected sources of inspiration, and emotional directness. His audacious, hazy album Kaleidoscope Dream aims for the psychedelic as much as the erotic. (The hook that goes â€śDo you like drugs?â€ť isnâ€™t just a question; itâ€™s a come-on.)
He often gets compared to â€™80s-era Prince, which is another way of saying that heâ€™s tricky to pin down. â€śI want to change the sound of whatâ€™s expected from R&B songs,â€ť Miguel announced when Kaleidoscope Dream came out last year. So far, he is succeeding.
