THIS SONG HAS BEEN REMOVED DUE TO A COMPLAINT BY THE RIAA.
Summary: A new classic. John Legend and Miguel make me melt.
About Artist: John Legend is singer/songwriter/piano player with a voice of god. He is one of my favorite singers, his voice just melts me. John Legend was first made famous by Kanye West, and had a hit freshmen album in “Get Lifted” (2004). Miguel is another R&B singer who I’m also in love with.
About Song: This song is a track off of John Legend’s 5th album “Darkness and Light” which came out on December 2nd 2016.
Favorite Part: I love how simple the song structure is. I love how sparse the intro is and how the song slowly builds as it progresses. I also am in love with John Legend and Miguel’s harmonies. I’m always a sucker for duets and to me this is one of the best. The song is so subtle and so beautiful.

DOWNLOAD MP3 Ludacris-GoodLovinftMiguel.mp3
Summary: I need some real good lovin.
About Artist: The one and only Ludacris has been crankin out quality tracks from Atlanta for over 15 years. Definitely a member of the hip hop hall of fame. Miguel is a an R&B singer who broke through in 2013 with his song “How Many Drinks”
About Song: This song is from a 6 song EP that Ludacris dropped in December of 2014. Ludacris hasn’t released anything in four years but this Burn Bridges EP is in anticipation of his 2015 album Ludaversal.
Favorite Part: This is just a beautiful song. I always thought Ludacris knew how to rap about sex/love (funny as that sounds), and Miguel’s voice is sex reincarnated.

Summary: #Summer2013 is a recap of the songs that made the summer of 2013 one of the best ever. The lead single off of ‘Born Sinner’. Check out the other three Born Sinner songs Trouble, Niggaz Know, and Forbidden Fruit that I posted(sorry I didn’t like Crooked Smile enough to post).

Nothin in particular stands out in this song. I do like Miguel’s “Would you believe me if I said I’m in love…”

DOWNLOAD MP3 TalibKweli-ComeHereftMiguel.mp3
Summary: This song is so suave. It makes me smile big and brings out my inner hopeless romantic.
About Artist: Talib Kweli is a critically acclaimed rapper who’s been around the block. He makes up half of Blackstar along with Mos Def, and is a hip hop legend in his own right. Miguel is the red hot R&B singer who’s been on so many amazing tracks recently (more to come on the blog). Sean C & LV are a production duo from New York affiliated with Diddy.
About Song: This song is the third single off of Talib Kweli’s 5th studio album Prisoner of Conscious which was release in May 2013. The song to me sounds like it samples Marvin Gaye’s Mercy Mercy Me.
Favorite Part: I love the chorus of this song. Miguel sounds soooo good, and the hook just gets stuck in your head. Talib Kweli adds his own real talk rapping to this love song which makes it a truly complete song. This song spoke to me the moment I heard it for the first time.

Miguel – How Many Drinks? (ft. Kendrick Lamar)

DOWNLOAD MP3 Miguel-HowManyDrinksRemixftKendrickLamar.mp3
Summary: Sometimes I just want to be romantic. (Note: getting a woman drunk at the bar so you can take her home isn’t actually romantic)
About Artist: Miguel is an R&B singer from LA. While he’s been around since 2007 he’s only recently gained noteriety. He’s done a couple track wile Wale and J. Cole that I also really like. Kendrick Lamar is a staple on this blog so you probably already know all about the Compton native.
About Song: This song is the third single off of Miguel’s second and highly acclaimed album Kaleidoscope Dream. 

Favorite Part:
Miguel’s voice just makes me melt. He even makes getting girls drunk at the bar sound romantic. Kendrick’s verse is just icing on the cake.

I like in chorus when Miguel sings “back of mind I’m hoping you say 2 or 3”

The music video below is kinda cool too
