Miguel Releases ‘War & Leisure’ Album, Announces Tour and Debuts New Video

War & Leisure Miguel

It’s official: Miguel is back! The 32-year-old crooner has just released his third album War & Leisure. In an interview with WPGC’s Poet Taylor, Miguel spoke about the album’s meaning.

“It’s a snapshot of I guess my life right now. Not even my life- our life and times and the energy that I want to feel and remember in the midst of this,” he said. “I think it’s really important that we stay positive and that we are forward pushing and we do it in solidarity, but not in a way that’s not mindful. I think it’s just about being purposeful, and I think a lot of people are going to relate to the feeling of the album.”

The album includes features from Rick Ross, Kali Uchis, and QUIN, and was preceded by songs “Come Through and Chill,” which features rapper J. Cole and Salaam Remi, “Told You So,” “Pineapple Skies,” and lead single “Sky Walker.” The song currently sits at No. 58 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

Earlier this week, Miguel announced The War & Leisure Tour with special guests SiR and Nonchalant Savant. The 34-city tour kicks off in Portland, OR on February 22 and runs through April 12, ending in Berkeley, CA. Tickets go on sale Monday, Dec. 4.

Lastly, Miguel has released a visual for his War & Leisure cut “Now,” which is the final track on the album. The Happy Perez-produced record finds Miguel contemplating and reflecting on the current state of America.

“CEO of the free world now/Build your walls up high and wide/Make it rain to keep them out/That won’t change what we are inside,” he sings.

Watch the video for “Now” below.

Keyshia Cole Plans to Repackage ’11:11 Reset’ With Three New Songs

Keyshia Cole has been hush mouth since the release of her 11:11 Reset album last October. Her silence has its good reasons though, according to a recent Instagram post.

The “Better Me” singer has plans to revive her latest album and its era. “I will be announcing a tour soon,” she wrote. She will also rerelease her album with three new songs.

The 11-track project, which released on Oct. 20, 2017, highlights Cole’s personal triumphs and trials post-divorce. The album includes the Remy Ma and French Montana assisted single “You” and soulful ballad “Incapable.”

There is no word on when Cole will re-release the album.

Miguel’s ‘Sky Walker’ Reaches No. 1 on Urban Radio

Miguel War & Leisure Album Now Video War & Leisure Tour

Miguel’s single “Sky Walker” featuring Travis Scott has secured the number one spot on urban radio.

Totaling 4,690 radio spins, the worry-free track floats from No. 2 to No.1 (Feb. 10), after N.E.R.D and Rihanna’s “Lemon” had a decline in radio spins. “Sky Walker,” which has over 106 million streams on Spotify, has spent nearly five months on the urban radio chart since debuting at No. 50 last September.

This is Miguel’s first time in five years of landing a number one single on urban radio as the lead artist. Before War & Leisure’s “Sky Walker,” Miguel commanded the chart with his 2012 hit “Adorn” from Kaleidoscope Dream. Before that, his other number one singles were “Quickie” and “Sure Thing” from his debut album, All I Want Is You.

Miguel will take the stage at the 2018 Broccoli City Festival along with Daniel Caesar and H.E.R.
