Track of the Day: 'Adorn'

Past Tracks

Of all the intriguing R&B records that have bubbled up over the last year, none have proven more interesting to me than Miguel's Art Dealer Chic series. (Especially volume two.) This young L.A. star has both songwriting prowess and the vocal firepower to deliver big records for himself and others. (Ask Usher.) "Adorn" is newer than those Art Dealer mixtapes, and it's the first hint of Miguel's second album coming this October, Kaleidoscope Dream. This track is a trunk rattler, and it opens with the lines, "These lips / Can't wait to taste your skin." From there, he starts begging and pleading, just like a grade-A R&B singer should.
