Already a seasoned writer (he's penned material for Usher, Mary J. Blige, among others) Miguel also handles a lot of the soundscaping himself, inviting only a select group of veteran producers in. We're talking people like Salaam Remi, who's behind the title track and "How Many Drinks?" which is another playful proposition for what could go down between himself and a pretty girl after the club. On this one Miguel also raps some good ol' fashioned raunchiness which I will not repeat here because I'm a lady. Alicia Keys co-wrote the track "Where's the fun in Forever?," and you can hear Miguel and her playing around in the studio toward the end of it.
It's really no surprise that Miguel's album is magical. Mark Pitts, the man Notorious B.I.G. used to call "Manager Extraordinaire" and currently the President of RCA Urban Music/CEO of Bystorm Entertainment, the label Miguel is signed to and a joint venture with RCA, oversaw it.
If I had a nascent R&B career, I'd want that baby in his hands, too.
Stay tuned for our interview with Miguel coming soon!
