Well Merry Christmas to me!!! Miguel got into the holiday spirit by giving his fans what they wanted most- brand new music. Even better is the fact, they’re all free to download on Soundcloud.

NWA” featuring Kurupt, “Hollywood Dreams” and “Coffee” like his other offerings can be classified as baby-making music but feature a slight experimentation in electronica. If this is the direction he’s taking on his new album, I fully approve. “Coffee” is my favorite of the trio.

Since his fantastic Kaleidoscope Dreams two years ago, the 29-year-old R&B singer has satiated us with random soundtrack contributions for Girls, Mockingjay to name a few. Hopefully, this surprise EP is a sign that a new full length album is just on the horizon. Give all three a listen below.

The second song off The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 soundtrack just dropped and once again it features Lorde, albeit in a minor capacity. Still, someone’s using their position as soundtrack curator to their benefit ;)

The “Royals” singer previously stated she’d be rounding up artists who we haven’t heard from in a while. That certainly doesn’t apply to R&B sensation Miguel but does with The Chemical Brothers. The British duo haven’t released any material since 2010. Welcome back!!!

Like “Yellow Flicker Beat,” “This Is Not A Game” is another gloomy dark track perfectly suited for the popular film franchise. As expected, Miguel’s vocals are absolutely sublime and fantastic. Lorde sprinkles a few “there it is…” throughout the song. Give it a listen below.

Miguel Cozies Up To Gigi Hadid For SimpleThings Video

Gigi Hadid (love her) is slowly becoming a video ho, albeit a stunningly gorgeous one but a video ho nonetheless. The Sports Illustrated model follows up an appearance in her ex-boyfriend Cody Simpson’s “Surfboard” clip by getting cozy with Miguel.

SimpleThings” is a beautiful ballad featured on the most recent Girls soundtrack. Sure the song is months old and the season of Girls is over but I appreciate the R&B singer giving the track a well-deserved visual.

It’s a relatively simple narrative where he leaves his house to meet up with Hadid but it’s beautifully shot and gives the track a second life. It could easily pass as a commercial for a designer label. Give the pristine black-and-white clip a view below.

Miguel’s Sexy Collaboration With Santana

In: Donovan, Music

When Santana finds the right singer to team up with, magic happens. His collaborations with Rob Thomas (“Smooth”), The Product G&B (“Maria Maria”) and Michelle Branch (“The Game of Love”) are truly masterpieces and have all gone to achieve Billboard Hot 100 success. His offerings the past few year haven’t yielded the same results but I have a feeling that’s all about to change.

Indy” produced and written by Miguel will appear on Santana’s next album Corazon scheduled to hit stores May 6. If you loved his contribution to the Girls Season 3 soundtrack, you’ll love this. Once again the “Adorn” singer delivers a sultry soulful track. Miguel can do no wrong in my eyes.

In addition to Miguel, Santana has a few other big names lined up for his upcoming album. Gloria Estefan, Wayne Shorter, Ziggy Marley and Pitbull will all be included. Love that Mr. Worldwide is part of this bunch. There is no stopping the rapper. He’s inescapable and practically everywhere this year. Check out “Indy” featuring Miguel below.

Like last year, Girls has an accompanying soundtrack to go along with the current season. Some of the show’s finest moments are synonymous with specific tracks. Who could forget Hannah doing cocaine while Icona Pop played in the background or Marnie joining Hannah in a dance to Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own.” It’s a little odd the album release didn’t coincide with the premiere of Season 3. I’m sure it was strategic but whatever the reason, we’re only a week away from the official release of Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do.

One of the tracks I was looking most forward to was Miguel’s contribution. I’m a huge fan of the “Adorn” singer and apparently so is Lena Dunham. She sought out the R&B singer specifically. Along with making the current season more upbeat, enlisting Miguel was another savvy wise decision by Lena. The end result is a gritty ballad where Miguel’s smooth vocals ooze over the seductive beat. Definitely give “SimpleThings” a listen below. I can’t wait to see exactly where this song ends up on the HBO show.

On The Electric Lady, Janelle Monae boasts several high-profile collaborations including Prince (“Givin Em What They Love”), Esperanza Spalding (“Dorothy Dandridge Eyes”), Solange Knowles (“Electric Lady”) and Erykah Badu on “Q.U.E.E.N.” which was the lead cut.

Out of them all, my favorite is hands down “PrimeTime” featuring Miguel. Partially, because I love slow jams, but also because I have a slight crush on the R&B crooner. That man just oozes sex when he sings. Every time I hear “Adorn,” I just want to get busy. At long last, a visual has premiered for their epic single. Why this hasn’t charted, especially on the R&B charts, is beyond me? Fingers crossed the clip garners some radio airplay and chart activity.

In the clip, Monae plays a “cyber-server” named Cindi Mayweather who works at a night club called the Electric Sheep where show droids entertain rich patrons. In other words, a classy high-tech strip club. While working, she meets Joey Vice played by Miguel. After getting harassed by horny male customers, she quits and frolics with Miguel on the rooftop and at another party. Watch these two get their flirt on in the Alan Ferguson-directed video below.

Cher Returns To The Voice To Mentor Contestants

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After almost a decade not performing live on television, the “Woman’s World” singer choose the NBC singing competition to debut her comeback single. Cher must’ve really enjoyed her time on the fourth season finale of The Voice. She returns to the show, but this time as one of the mentors during the battle rounds for Season 5. Find out who she’s paired up with below, along with the other three mentors.

“This group of wildly successful musicians will add their distinctive talents to their respective teams” Paul Telegdy, NBC’s late night and alternative programming president said in a statement. “I know Christina, Adam, CeeLo and Blake are very much looking forward to having them come aboard.”

Miguel Covers P!nk Down Under

In: Donovan, Music

If you didn’t know by now, I have the hugest hard-on for Miguel. Hands down, he’s the best and sexiest male R&B singer in recent years. Single-handedly, he reignited my love for R&B slow jams with his extremely steamy track, “Adorn.” Naturally, I was going to share the 27-year-old singer’s acoustic cover of this classic. It doesn’t hurt that it’s one of our favorite tracks from P!nk.

While on a promotional tour in Australia, Miguel stopped by Fifi & Jules to deliver a wicked acoustic set including “Just Like A Pill.” He gives the track new dimension with his stripped-down and emotional rendition. If you’re a fan of P!nk’s classic track, you definitely have to watch it. As an extra added bonus, I embedded a cover by Miguel of another pop starlet. A couple of years ago, back when he was starting out, he took on “Hold It Against Me” for Billboard. Check out both performances below.
