Miguel’s whole recent album Wildheart is full of hazy, sexed-up tracks that blur identifiable genre lines, and “Waves,” with its busy cowbells and gurgling guitars, is one of the better examples. It’s a psychedelic R&B song about fucking, and it undulates beautifully. In Miguel’s new video for the song, he plays and gets drunk at a dark party that’s absolutely full of beautiful and fashionable people who don’t mind getting mostly undressed. This seems like the sort of party that Miguel would go to. J. Cole and Wale are both there, too. Maybe Miguel was nice enough to sneak them in the back. The entire rest of the crowd seems to be made up of models. Noisey premiered the video this morning; check it out below.
Wildheart is out now on RCA.
