Miguel Manager Details Plans For World Domination: “He’ll Be Playing Arenas”

Published: Monday 14th Mar 2016 by David

For many an R&B-leaning star the absence of sizeable marketing budgets and access to Top 40 radio makes their journey to household name status an impossibly gruelling one.

Fortunately, the singer Miguel is no longer one of the artists following his creative union with the super manager that is Jordan Feldstein.

The power player, who also manages Maroon 5, Elijah Blake and Sara Bareilles, recently caught up with Hits Daily Double to reveal how he intends to ensure the ‘Use Me’ performer rises in Pop’s ranks.

How he intends to do it?

Find out below…

He revealed:

The artist we’re really focused on at the company that we believe we can take to a next level is Miguel. He’s already a star in his own right, but we can take him from playing theaters to playing arenas. We’re monster believers in that guy, and we’ve invested a lot. He’s one of the best live performers in the business, and he’s working on a great new record. With this next record, I can just see this guy going from playing 3,000 seats to playing arenas. That’s something we’re really excited about. Getting into the Spanish-speaking demographic is a big priority for us, and it’s obviously a demo on the rise in terms of quantitative numbers; that’s something I’ve been looking forward to. 

Miguel, who is of Mexican and African-American descent, has struggled to produce impressive numbers on albums front since the release of his debut ‘All I Want Is You’ but did enjoy success with the radio hit ‘Adorn’ which has sold over 1 million units in the U.S. alone.

A calculated move towards releasing Spanish language would see him honour his culture and follow in the footsteps of Beyonce who succeeded with the same strategy in 2007.

Like Miguel, the star was keen to find a home in Hispanic pockets and released the Spanish EP ‘Ireemplazable’ which spawned the cut ‘Beautiful Liar’, later reworked to accommodate vocals from the Colombian Pop princess Shakira.

The cut peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Will Miguel’s new move see him fare just as well?

    The type of management Ciara needs…. Glad she fired her team! She needs to be booking these meetings with people like Jordan Feldstein. Everyone can see how good of a show that girl puts on, She should be going from touring theaters to arenas as well with her next record.

    Pardon me for wanting the best for my girly.
    Congrats on Miguel for having people behind him that actually want to see him succeed.

      Yet we all know the outcome when they tried to push Iggy to tour Arenas….

        Miguel has credibility. His problem is his attitude and that everyone knows he’s paranoid about anything gay related.

    • Honey Bee March 14, 2016

      Ciara would flop even with Jordan behind her because she has no artistic direction. Money is only half the problem when the artist doesn’t have a creative point of view.

      Until Ciara can sell out a theatre tour then we can think about that.
      In the words of Sam, “it’s only a matter of time before the masses stop pining for comebacks from performers who should know better, and embrace the new-new.”
      arning shot of sorts. Because, should La Britney keep bringing the heat like this, it’s only a matter of time before the masses stop pining for comebacks from performers who should know better, and embrace the new-new.” ??

        Dont u stan Tinashe? Who is still performing in Nightclubs, and cleaning up Nicki Minajs dressing room from The Pink Print tour…

        Get your own fav a Theater headline then we can have a discussion babe.
        Tinman is a new artist already looking for a comeback.
        Tsk Tsk.

      • Coolness March 14, 2016

        Please, how did I just know you would be the one to use this cute girl against Ciara? You stan for Tinashe, so FOCUS on her and quit trying to downplay Ciara because you KNOW your is still compared to her and has yet to do ANYTHING that has even surpassed what she’s achieved.

    • #TeamTinashe Stan (#JOYRIDE…….) March 14, 2016

      Yeah if you can READ you would know that fool lol hehe. Tinashe is currently on her SECOND headlining tour BOOKED for 47 cities. Your fave only did two so far and alot of mopping and cleaning janitor work for other artists tours. Unlike Caesar, Tinashe is actually SELLING out her theatre tour . Can your homeboy do that? Is he still struggling to get the next leg of the tour rolling? BYE!

      • RIP March 14, 2016

        Artist tour for explosure and to promote their music. If her tour is doing so well and after the tv performances why isn’t her singles doing anything?Why did her debut flop so hard?
        Tennisshoe is nowhere near Ciara’s level as far as success goes.She only has that one hit and overzealous fans.

      • #TeamTinashe Stan (#JOYRIDE……..) March 14, 2016

        And she’s still here and being talked about. Case Closed! 😉

    He pretty much screwed the pooch with his seemingly homophobic antics. I used to luv Miguel, but I can no longer support him. Still very talented and makes great music.

  4. Jamie March 14, 2016

    Only if he throws that pussay in the right direction…

  5. Barb-wire March 14, 2016

    Yaaaasss!!! I’m still a believer in Miguel’s talent and I def see him playing arenas. At the end of the day talent wins. *Plays …goingtohell*

  6. Anti(hives scared of R8) March 14, 2016

    That body looks good!!

  7. MUSICHEAD March 14, 2016

    His looks can get him there if the music is actually good. Most of his music sucks unfortunately. If he can collaborate with more talented producers, he could certainly rival Bruno Mars.

    • JT March 15, 2016

      Looks? The dude is like 4’3″.

  8. Coolness March 14, 2016

    Miguel is one of the most talented R&B artists to debut this decade. I think it’s a good idea for him to tap into the Spanish-speaking audience because mainstream seems to ignore him.

  9. Del March 14, 2016

    He has the talent to reach the next level of stardom. Hopefully this plan works out for him.

  10. CHAKA March 14, 2016

    ¡Soy aqui para Miguel y musica de Miguel en la lingua Español! I think it’s a great idea for him to embrace all facets of his ancestry and heritage. It’d definitely be a nice change of pace, and could undoubtedly add the finishing flair of uniqueness that his music needs for him to be the mega star that his team sees him being. I’m highly excited about this and I’m actually not even that big of a Miguel fan lol.

  11. BeyKnowlesBestworkmiguel March 14, 2016

    Miguel is s*** af

  12. Tran anti no honey love time but it okay girl March 14, 2016

    People already know who Miguel is as a artist

  13. Danny Bey March 14, 2016

    I’m sorry but I have to admit. Y’all stay reaching bringing up Beyoncé when she has nothing to do with anything. Good grief lol. Let Miguel be great
