EDITORS’ NOTES

Before War & Leisure's release, its carefree lead single, “Sky Walker,” was a revelation that there’d been a Miguel-sized hole in R&B for the two years since Wildheart. War & Leisure as a title is a metaphor for the singer’s affection, Miguel singing, “No matter where I go on the map/You got my protection” on “Banana Clip.” His love for fuzzy guitars is clear throughout, and “Told You So” recalls Prince at his most danceable. Add to this the off-kilter bounce and multilingual verses of “Caramelo Duro (featuring Kali Uchis),” and War & Leisure is geared to propel Miguel to even greater heights.

Destined to be classic

Miguel you are such an unique artist definitely a legend in the making I bought your last 3 albums and none of them disappointed me, what makes them special is the original sound each of your albums has. This album won't be any different I can tell how much work you put into this one I know it's early to review this album but if you are true fan like me you know Miguel's music it's like magic sooner rather than later you'll be enchanted by his spell make no mistake and do yourself a favor and buy War & Leisure splish.

Sold me in 5 seconds!

Sky walker was already great but the moment I heard "Told you so" I was 5 seconds into it and pressed buy. Miguel is one of the most innovative singer/songwriter/producers of the last 30 years!
