Miguel’s moody awakening
Music | Miguel | March 12, Rebel
Prince’s mantle should be safe in the hands of Miguel, a seductive L.A. heartthrob with a lush falsetto and some killer guitar chops. Though he made his name on lusty R&B jams, his latest album, War and Leisure, is the sound of a sex symbol waking up to the world outside his bedroom—to protests in Standing Rock, to flooding in New Orleans, to police shootings in too many cities to count. At Rebel this month, Miguel will couch his weightier musings in steamy love songs, filled with characteristically slinky melodies and bluesy guitar riffs.
