Miguel “Adorn”

by Simon

I’m going RnB mad at the moment. I’ve quietly over the past couple of years been digging into the current RnB stuff.  People like Drake and Frank Ocean.  And I’ve always got Prince on the go, and a lot of the current stuff seems to nod towards him.  Dug out lots of my old Timbaland productions.  Even been listening to Justin Timberlake (the new album is superb, big widescreen production, great songs).  And this guy Miguel.  An album last year called Kaleidoscope Dream, which manages to be both current RnB and oldschool Prince/Marvin Gaye.  This track is the most obvious Marvin Gaye ‘tribute’ and is quite possibly my favourite vocal performance in years.  I love it when the vocal takes off in the second half of the song
