Miguel is running a winning race, earning five Grammy Award nominations thanks to the album “Kaleidoscope Dream” and the hit single “Adorn.”
Speaking just prior to the annual “Grammy Nominations Concert Live” Wednesday, Miguel pointed out the fact that his goal has been to create timeless music, not something for the “here and now.”
“I’m running a marathon, man. I never wanted to be an artist that was just here for now; I’m here to create music that isn’t just a here and now thing,” Miguel shared with Detroit News. “It’s rooted in emotion, and that’s what makes it timeless.”
Earning nominations for not just Best R&B Song, Best Urban Contemporary Album and even Best Rap Song, Miguel also picked up a coveted nod for Song of The Year. That nomination puts him in line with Ed Sheeran, Carly Rae Jepsen, Kelly Clarkson, and fun (feat. Janelle Monae) for a major win.
With the world now getting to know his name and music on the major platform that is the Grammys, things are looking up for Miguel. Even with that said, he thinks there’s a lot more to do and discover.
“There’s still a lot of discovery to be made, and there’s still a lot of growing,” says Miguel.
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards air Sunday, Feb. 10 on CBS.
