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.

Miguel Remixes Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” for ‘Fifty Shades Darker’


Fifty Shades is getting much darker!

The sequel to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is coming out in time for Valentine’s Day 2017, and the first trailer has been released.

Titled Fifty Shades Darker, the anticipated follow-up to the risque, provocative film is expected to build on the original’s provoking soundtrack, which featured the likes of The Weeknd and Beyoncé. In fact, the reworked version of Queen Bey’s “Crazy In Love” has been remixed for the new film, this time by Miguel!

Offering a similarly slowed down, seductive rendition of Beyoncé’s 2015 version, the R&B maverick adds another level of sexy with his raw vocal over piano keys.

“You got me looking so crazy right now,” he coos as the trailer builds suspense. “Your love’s got me looking so crazy right now.”

Fifty Shades Darker is due in theaters Feb. 14, 2017. Check out the preview of Miguel’s “Crazy in Love” 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.

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.
