New Music: Miguel – Cadillac


Miguel is taking fans back to the ’70s.

The Wildheart singer takes the wheel on “Cadillac,” a track off the upcoming soundtrack to Netflix’s original series The Get Down.

“Heaven’s in the backseat of my Cadillac / Let me take you there,” sings Miguel.

The soulful record blends various styles, including jazz and funk, which lend themselves to The Get Down, an upcoming series about the Bronx in the late ’70s, right as hip-hop was poised for its birth.

The Get Down, which premieres Aug. 12, stars Shameik Moore, Justice Smith, Jimmy Smits, and Giancarlo Esposito, among others. Jaden Smith is also set to appear on the show for a series of episodes.

Give “Cadillac” a spin below.

Miguel’s Brother Nonchalant Savant Releases “Mixed Signals” Video


Miguel has released a couple new records recently, including the smooth “Come Through and Chill,” but he is also using his Art Dealer Chic brand to introduce some new talent. Keeping it in house, as in-house can go, the R&B maverick has released a new song and video from his brother, who goes by the artist name Nonchalant Savant.

Unexpectedly refreshing the groovy singer serves up some chill vibrations of his own, with the video for “Mixed Signals.” Late night LA house party scenes play out from room to room, as Savant’s sluggishly intoxicating vocals elicit a magnetic draw, while he plays various instruments and instructs his girl to come closer.

“Before you can even get into the music, everything is fundamentally about the exchange of energy,” Savant told The FADER. “I wanted the video for ‘Mixed Signals’ to prepare you with the right kinds. Whatever it is that I do, I do my best to make it groovy for you, and I think this piece does a good job of capturing and converting that vibration, visually.”

That, we would have to agree with.

Miguel Addresses Police Shootings During Wireless Festival Interview: ‘We Can’t Stand By And Watch Anymore’


Following an emotional set, where he broke down on stage while talking about the recent tragic killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, and police officers in Dallas, Miguel sat down with radio DJ Tim Westwood for an interview backstage at “Wireless Festival” in England on Saturday.

“Now is always the time, now now, if not now when?,” said Miguel. “[Are] we going to sit by and complain, and keep posting Instagram photos with ‘prayer hands’ and saying ‘pray for’ this person or that thing? I mean what does that really mean anymore? All we’re doing is making ourselves feel like we’re doing something, and nothing is happening.”

Adding, “I feel like we’re just breeding this very passive way of going about things, but then expecting the world to change for us… We can’t stand by and watch anymore.”

I think we can all agree that Miguel is absolutely right. Check out his interview below.

New Music: Miguel – How Many

Miguel Wildheart art

I cannot stay silent.”

Miguel claims on a brand new song titled “How Many,” which he released for free early Friday (July 8).

Created in the wake of the multiple police-related shootings this week, the Wildheart singer reveals deep frustration on the powerful track.

“How many black lives?” he asks. “How many heartbeats turned into flatlines / How many black lives does it take to wake a change?”

The song isn’t finished, according to Miguel. “This version was started (written/recorded) here in London in my hotel room between the hours of 4am and around 7am when I passed out,” he wrote on SoundCloud. “I’ll update this song every week until its complete.”

Late last month, Miguel released the smooth “Come Through and Chill.” On Sept. 29, he is set to embark on the “Nostalgic for the Present Tour” with Sia.

Take a listen to “How Many” below.

New Music: Miguel – Come Through And Chill

Miguel Chill

Ohh, Hey Miguel!

A lovely surprise on this early Friday, the R&B maverick has released a brand new song titled, “Come Through and Chill,” produced by Salaam Remi. The singer has been busy touring, and tearing down stages in the U.S. and abroad, since the release of his stellar third studio album Wildheart.

The pop-up releases are becoming the new normal, and Miguel is taking another trendy activity, Netflix & Chill, and turning it into his own adaptation, on the breezy, sensual jam.

Sweet acoustic strings, strung together with a strong kick drum, lead the track while Miguel proposes a stimulating, but relaxing, private encounter with his lover.

“Due to unusual rain and thunder, baby I wonder (baby I wonder) / Would you put your sweats on, put your sweats on for me… Let me lay a great time on ya,” he sings.

No word on if this will land on an upcoming project, but enjoy the new vibes below!
