Time may be tick-tocking at a rapid rate, but the social media platform TikTok is helping turn back the hands of time to shine a light on amazing music.
Case in point Miguel‘s ‘Sure Thing.’
A “sped up” version of the 2010 track, which is lifted from the R&B star’s debut album ‘All I Want Is You,’ has gone all sorts of viral (with some 2.5 million videos made to date) and helped the song re-peak on the Official UK Singles Chart.

On the latest incarnation of the covered count, ‘Sure Thing’ has soared to #10 – 13 years after its initial arrival.
Speaking on the refreshed success, Miguel said:
“I’m really excited for this song to be getting recognition. Thank you to everyone who’s supported on TikTok and created new memories with the song. It’s all I could ever ask for.”

To commemorate the renewed buzz around ‘Sure Thing,’ Miguel released a five-track EP comprised of various versions of the track:
I’m so old school to use tik tok.. dinosaur is my middle name. Let me crawling back to my cave. I’ll be back
Je vais me faire un plaisir de ouf en t’affichant, tu vas rien capter depuis la cave vide qui te sers de bocal ma vieille.
Entertain me now, I’m waiting.
Omg! Why everyone is so obsessed with me? Just because I’m a 60 y.o overweight virgin f:ag man? It’s not fair. I just want to live, I just want to troll, I just want some D in my yeast infection ass. I’m gonna kill my self….. y’all won’t see me no more. I’m gonna make y’all pay
I’m clearly your obsession since you can’t stop calling my name and using it everywhere.
You’re a year off. The song is 12 years not 13
