There was a version of this included on his Art Dealer Chic Vol. 1, and being many fans’ favourite track from the entire series, it made it onto the very recent Kaleidoscope Dream: Water Preview EP, and hence will feature on his upcoming Kaleidoscope Dream LP.
Still with me? Good. This is the finished version of the ADC Vol. 1 track for those who haven’t heard that most recent EP yet, and it’s a great effort that really stands out in the sea of mediocrity that is the current R&B scene. It’s slow, sexy and packed with boatloads of cool, courtesy of a sultry production and excellent vocals from Miguel from start to finish.
The video complements the audio nicely, keeping the mood dark and unpredictable, whilst thematically focusing on duality throughout: there’s Miguel’s slick smart threads up against his rougher street wear, the mysterious masked woman being a polar opposite to the cheerleaders, and the confines of a small rooms and tight corridors versus the freedom of the outdoors where Miguel waits by his car. Worth a watch, definitely worth a listen, and be sure to hunt down that EP.
