Having just scored a deal with Jive Records, you’d think that rising R&B star Miguel would be feeling like he’s on top of the world, right? Well, he would be, if it weren’t for one little thing: he’s still kicking himself over walking away from the girl of his dreams. New single All I Want Is You finds Miguel pining after a lost love, but the singer’s sorrow turns out to be listeners’ gain. With the help of veteran producer Salaam Remi, who sets a refreshingly retro mood with subdued organ and electric guitar, he crafts a tune that’ll have R&B-lovers nodding along despite the downbeat subject matter. Roc Nation flagship artist J. Cole turns in a characteristically dope performance on the guest tip, expanding upon the record’s theme on the front and back end. Like what you’re hearing? Keep it locked for the latest details on Miguel’s forthcoming debut full-length, which has yet to receive either a title or a release date from the label brass.
