Miguel Producing Girlfriend, Nazanin Mandi’s Debut Album

Miguel's better half, model Nazanin Mandi, is ready to step up to the mic with a debut album.

Partnering with Miguel, who is executive producing the effort, Mandi spoke with Complex about the project and working with the "Adorn" singer.

"When we head to the studio, we automatically turn off relationship mode and go into work mode. If he doesn’t like something, if I’m doing it wrong, if I’m not feeling a song or lyric, we’re 120 percent honest," Mandi told Complex. "In order for this to work the way we need it to, we have to put our feelings aside and become business-minded. And that’s exactly what we’re doing."

Not a project that just popped up in the last few months, Mandi's debut is something that she and Miguel have been working on for some time.

"All these years, I had to find myself as an artist and it took me a while. I was always too shy to even sing in front of him or say, “I want to do this.” But one day, maybe three years ago, I had a breakdown and he said, “Babe, you have to let me help you. You can do this, you’re a star, and I’m not just saying that because I am your man. I see it, everyone else sees it, you have to see it, and I think it’s time that you open your eyes.” And since then, we’ve been working with each other," says Mandi.

As previously reported, Miguel is also at work on his third studio album. A follow up to the acclaimed "Kaleidoscope Dream."
