While in the UK for his sellout concert at the Jazz Cafe in London, the progressive R&B artist known as Miguel sat down with us to discuss his forthcoming sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dream and more.
In the 1st segment from the interview the Los Angeles, California hailing singer, songwriter and musician gives us some insight into the creation of and the inspiration behind his favourite song from his second album, the Pop & Oak produced collaboration with Alicia Keys “Where’s The Fun In Forever?” which was written in Jamaica originally for her project, but when she ended up passing on it Miguel gladly added it to Kaleidoscope Dream.
“Alicia’s on a song called “Where’s The Fun In Forever?”, the reason why is because initially I wrote it with her in Jamaica and it was such a personal thought and perspective, the idea ‘where’s the fun in forever’” Miguel recollects, “Would we we have achieved so much as humans if we knew there was no end to our lifespan, would we strive to become great? Would we take advantage or take it for granted moreso than we do now? So we did the song and I’ve never felt so attached to a song that I’ve written for another artist like this song. So I was really, really happy to find out she wasn’t going to us it and she was gracious enough to let us keep it and it’s one of my favourite songs on the album”
