We’re just one day away from the release of Miguel’s much-anticipated album, War & Leisure. After releasing the groovy single with J. Cole titled, “Come Through and Chill,” the Calif. native unveiled his Rick Ross-assisted track, “Criminal.”
Over hard-piano keys, the 32-year-old compares his dangerous love to, well, a criminal.
“It’s so good it feels criminal/Gotta be criminal, the way I keep killing you,” sings Miguel.
Recently, Miguel spoke with Billboard about his forthcoming album, War & Leisure being his most politically-charged project to date, as well as him protesting immigrant rights at Adelanto Detention Center, which is a private facility near Los Angeles.
“They call them ‘detention centers,’ but they’re really jails,” Miguel says to Billboard. “You start to see the real reason behind innocent people’s lives being ruined — it’s just money. The corporations are getting money from cheap labor, essentially.”
