Miguel’s 2011 hit single “Sure Thing” is experiencing renewed success, re-entering the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 49 and moving to No. 12 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart this week. In celebration of this achievement, Miguel shared an acoustic performance of the song on Instagram and hinted at new music to come. The song’s resurgence in popularity can be attributed to its viral success on TikTok, where users have created videos using the track’s official audio. Additionally, “Sure Thing” currently sits at No. 14 on Apple Music’s Top 100: Global chart and No. 25 on Spotify’s Weekly Top Songs Global chart, having exceeded 600 million streams. The song was originally released as part of Miguel’s debut album, “All I Want Is You” in 2010, and was almost given to Usher before Miguel was signed to ByStorm Entertainment/Jive Records.
The success of “Sure Thing” is not just limited to its chart positions, but also in its streaming numbers. The song has exceeded 600 million streams on Spotify and continues to be a favorite among listeners worldwide.

The song is lifted from Miguel’s debut album, All I Want Is You, which dropped in November 2010 via Jive Records. The album was a commercial success, garnering a platinum certification and also included the Hot 100-charting singles “All I Want Is You” featuring J. Cole (No. 58 peak) and “Quickie” (No. 62 peak).
Since the release of All I Want Is You, Miguel has released three studio albums, including Kaleidoscope Dream (2012), Wildheart (2015), and War & Leisure (2015).
