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.”

New Music: John Legend feat. Miguel – Overload

Miguel John Legend

On Friday, John Legend returned with his fifth studio album Darkness and Light and fans quickly uncovered one of the standouts, the Miguel-assisted “Overload.”

Enveloped by warm acoustic guitar strings and soothing, luscious horns, Legend ponders public displays of affection. “Don’t we always make a show of love?” he asks. “Life on overload, must we make a spectacle of love?”

Addressing social media’s role in relationships, Miguel lends some advice: “Let that cell phone ring / Let that bluebird sing / Let that message say ‘unread.’”

To celebrate the album release, Legend performed the album’s lead single “Love Me Now” on “Good Morning America.”

Fans in attendance definitely had love on their minds. Standing inside and outside of the studio, “GMA” viewers held up signs with messages for loved ones, including “I Said Yes! We’re engaged,” “Cuddle with Me Now,” and “College Roommates: 47 Years Later.”

Check out the performance, and listen to “Overload” below.

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.

Check out the video below.
