Undoubtedly Miguel is one of the best artist this decade has seen. His soothing vocals coupled with unique style is a knock-out formula that has been proven through his first three albums. Two-years departed from his last one ‘Wildheart’, Miguel looks to replicate his success with the release of ‘War & Leisure’.
His 12-track album is led by the Travis Scott-assisted “Sky Walker,” which has been a success. Miguel also reconnects with J. Cole on “Come Through and Chill,” while collaborating with Kali Uchis on “Caramelo Duro,” and Quiñ on “Wolf.”
In a recent interview with PAPER Magazine, the LA native explains that this album captures his current state of mind, saying, “If I didn’t include some of the things that are happening in the ethos and the things that I’m seeing and paying attention to and that I care about, if I didn’t include those topics in my music, I think it wouldn’t be a real, honest representation.”
Aside from promoting the album, Miggy has had a busy week as he performed on “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” covered PAPER’s 2017 Winter issue, and performed “Sky Walker” on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Kimmel” last night.
Next up for Miguel he will hit the road for “The War & Leisure Tour” with new TDE signee SiR and Nonchalant Savant. The tour begins February 22nd and runs through April 12th.
