Mark Pitts, president of urban music at RCA Records, is overseeing some exciting projects this year. Pitt, who is also the CEO of Bystorm Entertainment, has listed Miguel’s third album as a top priority for 2015.
In an interview with Billboard, Pitt gave an update on the progress of Miguel’s anticipated album. “We’re 90 percent done,” he revealed. “Its working title is Wild Heart and we’re talking second quarter. He’s more confident, and it’s going to show in the music, his look and in the videos. Miguel is ready to push the button. His first album was about trials and tribulations. The second was OK, we’re here; I wasn’t bugging. And now it’s here we go. He wants people to understand who he is. He’s tired of people asking who are you, what’s that, do you like girls?” He tells me, ‘I want everyone to know I am wild, funny, edgy and love women. I need this album to connect.'”
Pitts also spoke briefly about Usher’s forthcoming album. He tells Billboard they’re almost finished putting together Usher’s delayed project.
We’re excited about both releases and can’t wait until more details emerge.
