Miguel - Sure Thing

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Happy Perez
Album:

In pop music as in love, the only Sure Thing is that there are no sure things. (And before anyone says anything, yes, I do realize that statement is self-contradictory.) Judging by the positive Booth feedback the up-and-coming crooner (and recent video interviewee) has received thus far, though, Miguel is pretty damn close. On single numéro deux, the singer trades the hip-hop-informed vibes of lead effort/title track All I Want Is You for something a little more haunting; backed by Happy Perez’ headphone-worthy blend of swirling synths, ringing guitar chords and understated percussion (complete with an unexpected, but dope chopped-n-screwed hook), Miguel expresses the enduring, invincible power of his love for a special girl. While I doubt SAT scorers would approve of some of his analogical reasoning (cigarette is to smoker as news is to reporter?!) the artist gets a perfect 2400 where passion and soul are concerned. Like what you’re hearing? More eclectically fresh R&B goodness awaits on All I Want Is You (the album), released Nov. 30 and available now in stores and online.
