Here’s Miguel’s Sexy Wildheart Album Cover

Even though it’s coming out in a little over a month, we still don’t know all too much about Miguel’s third studio album. We know it’s called Wildheart, we have one confirmed single with “Coffee” (the Wale-less version, of course, which is much better), and we know it’ll be out on 6/30. Other than that,… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

We had this list laid out last night, hours before Mark Kozelek dropped a new track off the upcoming Sun Kil Moon record, Universal Themes. No surprise: It was — and is — a very good song. So we had to reassess and reorganize. Sharon Van Etten’s “Remembering Mountains” was ultimately dropped so we could… More »

Watch Miguel Sing “Coffee” In A Session For Jack Daniels

Miguel has a hit with his new after-hook-up anthem “Coffee.” It’s a genuinely giddy take on romance, a track about sex that captures all the fucking great things in a relationship that are better than sex. The song technically hit last winter as part of his surprise EP, but has been officially rolled out a… More »

Miguel, Marilyn Mosby Join Prince At Rally 4 Peace In Baltimore

Prince held his Rally 4 Peace concert in Baltimore on Sunday night, and thousands were in attendance. It was the first time he played in the city in 14 years.

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

You could probably make a case for a much different 5 Best Songs this week — your parallel-universe list might include Tame Impala, Willow Smith, Elvis Depressedly, Vennart, and/or Moses Sumney. You would still end the week with a really good bunch of songs. It would be hard, though, to envision any 5 Best Song… More »

A$AP Rocky – “Everyday” (Feat. Rod Stewart, Miguel, & Mark Ronson)

A$AP Rocky debuted a new song just a little while ago at his talk for Red Bull Music Academy, and now the studio version is live.

Miguel has a glorious new single called “Coffee,” and when you listen to the version that doesn’t have Wale, it will remind you of all the reasons you let his love adorn you in the first place!

The Week In Pop: Forecasting 2015’s Event Albums And Rising Stars

Take it from someone who started a weekly pop column last year: 2014 was a bad year for pop music. I write this knowing that there are still many self-satisfied blowhards in the world — sometimes even in the comments section of this very website! — who will tell you that every year is a… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

We skipped 5 Best Songs last week because of Christmas; we probably could’ve skipped it this week because of New Year’s, but man, the songs were stacking up.

Stream Miguel’s New Surprise EP

In early 2012, when he was still just a promising major-label R&B prospect with one album to his credit, Miguel released his Art Dealer Chic EP series. Those three EPs established Miguel as a powerful, strange, masterful songwriting force and set him apart from his peers. Not long afterward, he released his woozy, psychedelic, sexed-out… More »

Miguel Instagrams Hangout With Jai Paul & AK Paul

We know very little about Miguel’s next album beyond the tantalizing teaser of “Coffee” we heard last month. We know even less about what Jai Paul’s been up to since his alleged debut album and/or demos collection appeared then disappeared from the internet last year. Here’s something to add to the intrigue: As Pitchfork point… More »

Jessie Ware – “Kind Of…Sometimes…Maybe (J. Cole Remix)”

When I first heard “Kind Of… Sometimes… Maybe,” Jessie Ware’s Miguel collab from Tough Love, my first thought was not, “This needs a J. Cole verse tacked on the beginning,” especially one that begins with the line, “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.” But that was Cole’s opinion when he heard the track… More »

Preview Miguel’s New Song “Coffee”

You know a performer is breathing some rarefied air when you can hear like eight seconds of a new song and think to yourself, “Yup, that’ll be good.” Miguel’s breakout album Kaleidoscope Dream is now two years old, and he recently made noises on Instagram that its follow-up will be along “soon.” He also shared… More »

Jessie Ware debuted “Kind Of…Sometimes…Maybe” at Flow Festival in August, but today she drops the studio version, on which she is assisted by none other than Miguel.
