Miguel first hit the mainstream in 2010 with the infectious first single ‘All I Want Is You,’ from his major label debut album of the same name, a song which blended a stark hip-hop beat with Miguel’s creamy vocals to form a sound that was absent from the radio and established Miguel as one of the most unique and soulful voices in modern R&B. The album also features ‘Sure Thing,’ which hit #1 on Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B chart and second US #1 ‘Quickie.’ Miguel’s follow up was his critically-acclaimed, four-time Grammy Award nominated, sophomore album ‘Kaleidoscope Dream,’ which features his third US #1 hit single ‘Adorn,’ the intoxicating ‘How Many Drinks?’, ‘Do You…’ and ‘The Thrill.’
In 2013 Miguel was nominated for a total of 5 Grammy Awards. Lead single ‘Adorn,’ written and produced by Miguel, garnered Miguel his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Song and resided at #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart for more than 23 weeks becoming the longest running #1 in the history of the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart. In 2015, Miguel made his chart return with ‘Coffee,’ which garnered him yet another Grammy Award nomination for Best R&B Song. The third studio album ‘WILDHEART’ followed, marking his second consecutive US R&B chart #1 album and received him his second Best Urban Contemporary Album Grammy nomination.
2017 saw the release of Miguel’s critically acclaimed album ‘War & Leisure’ which included double platinum certified track ‘Sky Walker’. In 2018, Miguel won his first Oscar for Best Original Song, and performed the winning track “Remember Me” alongside Natalia Lafourcade and Gael García Bernal at the 90th Academy Awards. The end of 2019 saw the release of ‘Funeral’, the first single from Miguel’s upcoming EP of the same name, due 2020.
