While you were sleeping, the world got a little bit sultrier thanks to a surprise three-song EP from Miguel. Somehow, it makes perfect sense that the man who loosed “Adorn” (a.k.a. the most sexed-out love jam ever) upon the world would release his new EP in the middle of the night.
The seemingly unnamed EP features three unadulterated slow-burning jams that show Miguel is still very much at the top of his game. The EP’s opener, the slick “NWA”, features L.A. rapper Kurupt letting his rhymes slither over a funky guitar track while Miguel’s voice soars underneath. “HollywoodDreams” is a steamy number built around sharp hooks, muddy guitars and yearning vocals that could easily stand in for a b-side on his full-length, Kaleidoscope Dream. The closing track “Coffee”—which Miguel teased on Instagram a few months ago—is a sultry knee-buckler. Listen to in private, just to be safe.
