Grammy Award winner Miguel is tired of hearing superficial music. Addressing recording artists chasing after commericial success instead of delivering unique material, Miguel says the sound he tries to achieve is "personal" and not "status quo."
"There was a time when rhythm and blues music was diverse. It was adventurous and experimental. I think somehow we've gotten away from discovering our unique perspective in exchange for commercial success, or what we perceive to be commercial success. I also think it also has a lot to do with time," Miguel shared when discussing "Adorn" with the Chicago Tribune this week. "As a fan of R&B music, I'm tired of this superficial music that I've been hearing especially from R&B so maybe it's timing, it's just the right time."
In related news, Miguel is gearing up for a major performance on "Saturday Night Live." Due to take a break from touring with Alicia Keys, to appear on SNL April 13, Miguel says he and his team are hoping to give a defining and classic performance.
"Every moment we get to play on stage is defining. It's classic. "SNL" is probably one of the premiere outlets that a musician can perform on that isn't obviously a music outlet. It's a legendary stage where legendary artists have played, but like you said, some have made their careers, some have hurt them. I just go out there and have fun, that's the whole spirit, to go out there and have fun," Miguel shared.
