After spending the majority of 2013-14 writing some incredible pop songs for Mariah Carey and Jessie Ware, Miguel released a three track EP this past week, proving he hasn’t given all his best ideas away. The opening cut, with its electric guitar riff and Miguel’s effortlessly cool falsetto, is a perfect reintroduction to the R&B hit maker. What is perhaps most exciting about “nwa” is its unassuming nature; this isn’t the sound of a songwriter attempting to make a chart-busting tune on the level of “Adorn”. Miguel has already proven he is a commodity worth being treasured. While many artists find themselves restricted after commercial success, the opposite is true for Miguel. With the monkey off his back, Miguel can go back to the basics, singing songs to his OGs.
