Miguel in many respects is a new artist, especially when you talk about him in relation to a legend such as Marvin Gaye. This comparison is not to dilute the legacy of the great Mr. Marvin Gaye … it is more to inspire and show how his influence has spawned new extraordinary talent that gives us hope for the future. Now the young Miguel is heating up on the charts, radio and stages throughout the country and world. It is the feeling and sensuality that fills his voice, which can be compared to that of Mr. Marvin Gaye.
Mr. Marvin is a legend and will always be just that. However, Miguel is growing and is giving us something with feeling to listen to. There are definitely similarities and of course differences. But all in all, these artists were and still are passionate about their craft. We enjoy their music and it has been and will be a soundtrack for our lives. Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner and Rock & Roll Hall of famer are two accomplishments that Miguel has yet to reach. However, as he reaches our hearts and produces more material, we will see if he has what it takes to be…!
Check out five reasons why Miguel is starting to remind us of Mr. Marvin…
Both of these artists were known to collaborate. Marvin constantly collaborated with the Motown team and artist like the late Tammi Terrell. Miguel rocks with rappers and singers alike to give them that spice.
Artists and fans alike say that some of the music today is missing that feeling. However, in the same breath people usually say that Miguel seems to have this “feeling” we all crave. We want to feel like we are a part of his passionate love scene or break up. It is the passion and emotion that gives us that feeling through the music. That feeling in music can be so powerful. It can change lives and perspective and yes even make babies.
We might not realize it now, but Miguel is helping to change some things around in the midst of a heavily Hip Hop influenced atmosphere. He is making people respect the R&B genre again. You do not have to be a R&B lover to feel his music. He has been able to outshine some artists on their own songs. Marvin also had to find himself and make major strides. He went from the Motown Machine driven by Barry Gordy to singing songs like “What’s Going On” that had a message about issues at that time.
Miguel: Sexual Healing Lyrics
There is no doubt that both of these artists had the ability and willingness to infuse an infectious dose of sexuality and sensuality into the music they produce(d) through the arrangement, lyrics, tone and overall feeling. Songs like “Sexual Healing”, “Let’s Get It On” and “I Want You” enticed any listener to get a little closer to the one they loved or lusted for. Songs like “Do You” and “Adorn”, help to release that dopamine that makes you just want to mix it up with that special someone. (Miguel seems to be bulding up to our generations “Sexual Healing” and “I Want You”.)
They both have a wonderful tone and technique that helps to connect you with their feelings. Miguel and Marvin’s music have that tone that moves you no matter what type of record it is.
