Miguel’s well spoken interview gives off an ecstatic vibe, and he gives a ton of deets on the project from his curation. Rick Ross jumped on “Criminal”, and Miguel tells Ebro the energy in the track is an analogy to his personal energy.
This is one of those songs where it was like I know I’m crazy but I need people around me who are just as crazy as I am.
The R&B artist continues his conversation, specifying his stance on life. Miguel takes a very laid back point of view on life, with an optimistic mindset. When asked how he saw himself in the industry, Miguel replied “The greatest way of encapsulating the overall feel is I just really care to be in a place where I can create freely without any objective. I feel like a lot of us have to play the game. Some do it more effortlessly than others.” He was also asked on his fears, describing his high frequency work ethic that has its ups and downs.
As for his album, he delivers quite nicely on the sonically charged flow mixed in with relatable features that keep the listener on edge.
