If you’re a fan of Miguel, and that’s pretty much everybody, you’re probably having a very exciting day. As pumped as we already were for his new album War & Leisure on December 1, today’s news has us amped even further with his new single “Pineapple Skies.”
If I may coin a phrase, this is “Yacht R&B.” I mean that in the best of ways, as this gloomy overcast Friday suddenly feels like I’m on a relaxing cruise, sipping a drink out of a fruit and waving at marine life. It’s a very different take from the acoustic version of “Pineapple Skies” Miguel blessed us with last month.
While Miguel has stated the bulk of War & Leisure is politically inspired, “Pineapple Skies” is like a refreshing mango drink before a tropical storm.
– The rumors are true, Kendrick Lamar and U2 have united once again for “American Soul.”
– Looks like Eric Bellinger has enlisted Wale to get your “G.O.A.T. 2.0.”
– According to CyHi the Prince, apparently Kanye West is producing full albums for the entire G.O.O.D. Music roster, meaning we have Mr. West behind the boards for the next Pusha-T, Big Sean, Teyana Taylor and Kid Cudi.
