Oftentimes, it’s the Simplethings in life that are the most gratifying. Like starting your day with a fresh cut from RCA Records recording artist Miguel, for example. Part of the official soundtrack to season three of HBO’s Girls, this newly-released promo single is, appropriately enough, a case study in elegant simplicity. Backed with little more than a distorted guitar riff, midtempo percussion and a few mood-setting synths, the R&B heavyweight sketches out what he looks for in a mate. More than peerless beauty or social status, he simply craves companionship as he goes about his daily activities: “I just want someone to smoke with me, babe… and lay with me, babe.” For more new music from a variety of popular artists, cop Girls Vol 2: All Adventurous Women Do when it hits record stores and online retailers next Tuesday, February 11. Miguel fans can also check out his contribution to Big Sean‘s latest video single, Ashley.
