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 as a single to help promote his new album WILDHEART. Miguel performed a live version of “Coffee” for Jack Daniels, slightly tweaking the arrangement and leaning heavier on the psychedelia-rock elements. If you’ve ever listened to his Spotify sessions, you know that this is an R&B singer who is at his best when he loses control a bit and starts improvising. That’s what he does here, and it turns an already great song into an out-of-control jam. Song of the summer anyone? You can also watch Miguel talk about how the song helped spark his entire album here. Plus, if you scroll down far enough you’ll notice that Jack Daniels’ next sessions is with Run the Jewels(!) and it comes out in 12 days. For now, though, it’s time for some coffee. Watch it below.
WILDHEART is out 6/30 via RCA.
