On repeat: Miguel – Sure Thing

June 2, 2011

Miguel Jontel: one of my favorite new r&b artists & songwriters. Miguel is one of the best things that’s happened to modern r&b in a while. His music has an old school/ underground r&b flavor to it which I absolutely adore. The first song I’d heard of his was “All I want is you”, which definitely got my attention and had me rock’n to the beat. That song was followed by several other wonderful songs. More than any other genre of music, r&b has had the most influence on me; it defines me and takes me back to my roots. For this reason alone, I have such an appreciation for great r&b artists. What I love about Miguel the most is the old school soul (not old old school, relax) in his voice; takes me back to the days of Jodeci and Tony,Toni,Tone! I like that he’s doing his own thing; he stands out from the rest of them and does it with confidence. He writes great music, as well.  “All I want is you” was fly because it had a nice flow and hot beat. “Sure thing”, similarly, has a smooth flow and is super romantic; the lyrics are sweet and sincere and could make any girl feel special. I also have a big crush on his guitarist; he gets so into the  music when performing – it’s so sexy. Go ahead, Miguel + cute guitar player, do yall’s thang.
