Listen: Miguel Goes Dark with RL Grime on “Stay For It”


Miguel keeps the unexpected collaborations coming, as he goes hard with a dark-electro feature on producer/DJ RL Grime‘s new single “Stay For It.”

The sound bending production is a rollercoaster ride of electronic builds and breakdowns. Miguel uses the smooth verses as a cry for help, before the pre-chorus builds with crashing percussion into a massive hard-hitting techno sequence.

“Save me from my pain, replace all my disaster / Believe me, I’m no saint, but I’m learning faster,” he sings. “When you’re by my side, I feel like there’s a way / Don’t you say goodbye.”

After debuting the song in April, U.K. singer-songwriter Dua Lipa flies in love with Miguel in the electrifying video for their collaborative single, “Lost In Your Light.”

The visual opens with Dua strutting with confidence through a Los Angeles parking lot before she is levitated to a rooftop where we find Miguel. The duo are both lifted through the air and into the night, where they return to the roof to harmonize together over the dance/rock track.

“I’m lost in your light, baby / I want to stay right here all night, baby,” sings Dua as they return to the daytime and the ground, where they are joined by a troop of dancers for a final scene outside a warehouse.

Video: DJ Premier & Miguel – 2 Lovin U

DJ Premier and Miguel gave fans a great surprise in February with the release of their collaborative single “2 Lovin U.”

Now, the two have debuted an official music video for the bangin’ collaboration, which was birthed out of their early sessions for Miguel’s Wildheart album. A completely different version of the song, entitled “damned,” ended up on the album’s deluxe edition.

In the video, the R&B maverick and Hip Hop legend perform together in a warehouse as rays of light shoot around Miguel and Premo’s scratching. In additional scenes, couples are shown embracing and kissing in the shadows, and later they are highlighted in the warehouse behind Miguel.

Speaking about the creation of the song in his recent interview with ‘The Breakfast Club,’ Premier explained: “[Miguel] just started playing these guitar licks and I just started tapping the drum live. I didn’t even know Miguel could play guitar. I said, ‘That’s good. Let me take that.’ Programmed it. He sits at his desk, records, Pro-Tools it. I was like, ‘Wow.’ He’s standing up, screaming and all that. I’m watching how he does it. The song gets done, but it never got to the process where we could put it out through RCA.”

Since he always wanted to release this version, Premo got Miguel and the label’s permission, and he released it as part of his new label, To the Top.

New Music: DJ Premier & Miguel – 2 Lovin U

After teasing his followers about a week ago, famed hip hop producer DJ Premier has officially liberated his new single with Miguel.  Titled “2 Lovin U,” the lyrics may sound familiar to dedicated fans of the R&B maverick, because they were previously used on the song “Damned,” off the deluxe version of his Wildheart album.

“The snippet you heard on Miguel’s Instagram, mine is the original,” said Premo in a press release. “Miguel and I were vibing at a session and just really seeing what we could come up with. What we came up with was a dope, but a rough version of what you hear today. Miguel and I had deadlines, and we never got around to finishing it. We both really believed in this version of the track, and we both felt very strongly that it needed to come out and be released as a single. Miguel and I approached the label about releasing it, and everyone was on board.”

Looking for a unique way to release the song, ESPN was given the track on Valentine’s Day to play 20-second snippets during “SportsCenter” and “First Take.” Sirius XM radio was also allowed to play the song at the beginning of the week, but now it has officially been released to digital retailers and streaming services.

“The track having a different title gives it a new light,” DJ Premier states. “Wait until you see the video.”
