Miguel Releases Surprise EP / Listen!

Published: Friday 19th Dec 2014 by Sam
Miguel-2015-EP-ThatGrapeJuice

Miguel is the latest artist to embrace the “no advanced warning” approach to the roll-out of new music.

The ‘Adorn’ singer has spent much of 2014 working on the follow-up to his sophomore album ‘Kaleidoscope Dreams’, which hit stores in 2012.

And while it’s presently unknown if the three new songs which comprise the mini-set tie into a meatier album, what is certain is that the cuts – christened ‘NWA’, ‘Hollywood Dreams’, and ‘Coffee’ – are ready to taste after the jump…

Impressive. Very sonically engaging.

  1. Well damn December 19, 2014

  2. Beysus December 19, 2014

    Yay!!!!

    • HBIC_MamaPope December 19, 2014

      Bey’s influence tho >>>>>.

  3. MisdamenorFan December 19, 2014

    Yes! Good music!

  4. LB December 19, 2014

    I was hoping he would at least promote it somewhere. It is not everyday you see a singer attempt to be a wrestler.

  5. Jamie December 19, 2014

    This is the way music was before the internet/piracy. Beyonce’team with emphasis on team, just figured out a way through the loopholes of technology.

  6. Humble christian woman December 19, 2014

    When will Rihanna?

  7. Kyle December 19, 2014

    That Bey impactt

  8. Chris December 19, 2014

    Beyonce’s influence? I think Frank Ocean did that years before Beyonce. He did this first with his mixtape (which was a full album) on the Odd Future website, then with Channel Orange with its iTunes release.

    • HBIC_MamaPope December 19, 2014

      there’s a difference between dropping an EP/Album by surprise when your an established artist, and dropping a mixtape by surprise – Frank was not popping back in the Nostalgia Ultra days, so dropping those tracks with no promotion is not a big deal because he probably wasn’t even repped back then

  9. Unbiased December 19, 2014

    I’m loving the idea of surprise/short notice releases.
    I’m tired of artists spending several months hyping up an album to the point where it drops it can never live up to the hype.

  10. DanYiel Teflon December 19, 2014

    Well alright S*** Miguel!!

  11. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT December 19, 2014

    I can’t wait for this surprise bullshiit to pass. I like it when artists promote their music because it shows people how hard they’ve worked and that they want their projects to be a success. This isn’t they’re second job I cant wait for this surprise bullshiit to pass. I like it when artists promote their music because it shows people how hard they’ve worked and that they want their projects to be a success. This isn’t they’re second job or hobby so you have to prove it to and sell it to me. hobby so you have to prove how hard they’ve worked and sell it to me. I don’t like this trend that Trannyoncé has started.

    • King B December 19, 2014

      Salty much! elle heaux elle, we live in a Beyoncé world and there’s nothing we can do about it.

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT December 19, 2014

        This post isn’t about Trannyoncé, but she inspired this trend so I had to mention it. Calm your STD infested hive of a pusssy down and don’t be an ignorant stupid biitch. Your little reply doesn’t even have merit.

    • Tyler December 19, 2014

      I’m glad that you acknowledged the fact that Beyonce was the one who inspired this game changing trend.
      Something that RihanDYKE isn’t capable of doing….will you be talking all that s*** when she follows suit as well? #BEYinspired

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT December 19, 2014

        STFU Biitch and go back to sleep.

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT December 19, 2014

        Stop replying to me dehydrated f*****. Trannyoncé doesn’t even care about you.

      • Tyler December 19, 2014

        The Queen Bey doesn’t care about you either….but you seem to love to her the topic of discussion. So f*** you c***.

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT December 19, 2014

        Go suck some diick. You sound D—hydrated. You damn fuuck bottom, get your life.

  12. #1Lamb December 19, 2014

    Neither Beyoncé or frank ocean started “surprise” releases people. It dates back to David Bowie. So, please stop with the “bey influence”. I mean she did it well but not the first to do it.

    • Sherry December 19, 2014

      Cmon now I’m not even a big fan of hers, but she changed the game with her surprise release. Doesn’t matter who did it before her when she did it the best.

  13. sarah December 19, 2014

    That cover is very Lana inspired

  15. Bravo!! December 19, 2014

    To think about this Beyoncé was not the first artist to put out an album without any single or promotion. She was the first to take a gamble on releasing an ablum in this time with when buying music is declining. I forget the year but erykah badu was really the first artist to release an album with no single or promotion. Her reason for releasing the album with no promo was because she considered herself an artist like an painter. I don’t remember the cd, but she tried and it failed. Beyoncé just the first artis to have success.

  16. Tyler December 19, 2014

    Bottom line, Beyonce’s surprise album was the MOST SUCCESSFUL. “Beyonce” revitalized this trend. Whether you want to admit it or not.

    Oh, and I love the this albums Cover art BTW

  17. Tyler December 19, 2014

Lol That’s why you’re going up and down replying to people who dont give a fuuck about your opinion. You’re pathetic. You’re a waste of skin. You have no life. *Gasps for Air* You are a non factor.

      • Tyler December 19, 2014

        *screams* Puerto Rican hermaphradite!!!?
        B**** are you stupid??? lmao. Which one is it rihtarded, simple, or slow???

        H**, you know what you look like….
        A dusty West African knee cap. Do better b****!

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT December 19, 2014

        What drug are you on? How do you even come up with those wacky ass name. You and Beyonstale are lame. My goodness. You should throw that journal away. Lol They’re not funny and they don’t make sense. My favorite is ‘RihomDyke’ Biitch how do you even pronounce that. Lol You’re so wack.

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT December 19, 2014

        You look like a Cloned Pakistani Transgender prostitute. Tell that to your hairy mama who has afros on her n******. LMAO!!! Twirl on that f**.

      • Tyler December 19, 2014

        I’m not on drugs but you are obviously something if you honestly think that Rihanna’s scientific looking ass is a better entertainer than Beyonce lmao

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT December 19, 2014

        I won’t lie, Trannyoncé is hotter. Rihanna makes better music. She has never been accused of stealing songs. #Fact Trannyoncé.’s string of lawsuits are evidence. She thinks she slick lol.

      • Tyler December 19, 2014

        Better music my ass! You and I both know that Beyonce is way more talented than RihAliena. Idc how many hit songs she has. Beyonce is the most commercially viable performer of this generation. Numbers Don’t Lie.

        And I could give two f**** about Lawsuits. Madonna and Elvis are the two biggest copy cats in music history….Madonna’s been sued more than anybody but did any of that taint their legacy? NO.

        He’s still the King and she’s still the Queen #FACTS.COM

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT December 19, 2014

        Don’t change the subject ya f*****. Your fave is a thief. IDGAF who the biggest thief is. You failed to prove Trannyoncé innocence, so yeah… she a thief and a grifter. Keep sticking to those Rihanna name calling and “commercially viable” excuses. I’m always gonna be available to clean you out. Chao!

        FIN

  22. BeyxMaraj December 19, 2014

    @Tyler, you better draaag that non-factor. Always up in here thirsty for the Navy’s approval when they can give two shitts about it. That scum shades Bey coz he’s craving to be with the in-crowd of the Navy. #ThirstyBottom

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT December 19, 2014

    • Tyler December 19, 2014

      PREACH

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT December 19, 2014

  23. Tyler December 19, 2014

    @I Stan(d) For “Talent”

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT December 19, 2014

        *Passes out* Are you seriously boring me on purpose. C’mon biitch. Lol And you accuse me of using troll names, but that BeyxMaraj, that’s you isn’t it? You keep clinging on every little thing I say. Why tho? *Yawns* You need to reassess your strategy when you ‘drag’ (LOL) as you so mentioned because you’re literally making me fall asleep.

        PS: *Yawns* I’m in a different time zone.
