Miguel Tells Other Artists to Stay Out of His Lane

Miguel

Miguel has a stern warning for the competition: Stay out of his lane or he will “f**k you up.” The R&B crooner is taking a tough stance when it comes to his music and those who try to imitate his style.

The 25-year-old is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to his 2010 debut All I Want Is You. “It’s definitely a progressive album,” he told Mina SayWhat on Philadelphia radio station Power 99. “I would describe it as being progressive in the sense that I’m taking a lot of my more alternative influences and incorporating them.”

Over the past few months he released his trilogy of Art Dealer Chic micro EPs to give fans a taste of his new direction. “‘Adorn’ is a great segway because it’s very soulful, but still has some alternative elements,” he said. “I think that’s what makes it really cool. It’s a very honest representation of where I’m at, but it’s just a segway.”

But those who attempt to adopt his sound should take caution. “I’m just gonna say, ‘Don’t nobody out there step into my fu**in’ lane. Stay where you’re at,’” he warned. “I’m a competitive person and what I’m saying is I’m solidifying my lane and don’t fu**ing come over here ’cause I will f**k you up.”

He explained himself further. “I want everyone to express themselves in a unique way. I’m saying that in an aggressive way ’cause that’s how I really feel, but what I mean by that is find your own thing to do and create your own lane.”

Don’t expect many features on his sophomore album. “I’m a man who wants to stand on his own two feet. I don’t need a fu**ing co-sign. I don’t need that shit,” he said, while adding, “I can’t tell you who I may feature on this next album, but I guarantee you that it will be unexpected.”

    @THE REAL TYLER* 1 song what u mean? Every single he dropped was a hit. All I Want Is You, Sure Thing and Quickee, Sure Thing being his biggest hit it went #1 On Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Charts and stayed there for weeks. Miguel is a very talented artist and he has a reason to be cocky about his sound because nobody is doing it. I wouldnt want anyone stealing my sound either honestly cause its what seperates you from the rest of the competition.

    I respect that, I respect Miguel because what he does is real, not driven by album sales and ‘flavors of the month’. His music is real, different and he has his own sound. I respect the fact that he’s keeping it real by saying ‘I will F you up’. He’s not trying to play the bad guy, or the good guy, he’s not playing, he’s being himself. At a time where I hated R&B, he made me rediscover it.

    Miguel I only like two of your songs: Sure Thing, and All I Want is You (and I only liked this song because of J Cole not you). Your style is not innovative because you bite off of Prince so of course so expect other people will too. Your already big head is getting to big and you didnt even get nominated for a Grammy :(. So in Makael from the Skorpion show voice*” Please have several seats.

    georgia23 Reply:

    @Breeangel, I’m sorry… I just have to say this. He is not even CLOSE to biting from Prince. Prince had a swag, style and ALL the talent to match. For the current state of R&B, Miguel is the exception to the rule and he does create some very unique vibes and hooks which are very much his own style. But don’t put him in there with Prince. That dude is a legend. Miguel is good, but he’s nowhere near there yet.

Music should be your passion and your heart should be in it, but I don’t think all the swearing and aggressiveness was necessary. You carved your own lane and it’s only right that other people find their own lane as well. That message could have been conveyed without all that extra color he splashed on it.

    [Reply]

    almostpia Reply:

    @georgia23, I echo your sentiment.

    I enjoy Miguel’s music but what he is doing is a culmination of what Prince and Pharrell Williams have done with music. What he is doing sonically is new to the current generation of music enthusiasts but for those who listened to music from the 70s and 80s, his sound is similar to those decades of R&B, soul, rock and funk.

    Personally, I think Miguel feels disrespected because he is a very creative person but, unfortunately, the gatekeepers of mainstream music only “blesses” a handful of Black artists to have crossover appeal and I believe that is what Miguel wants. He wants to have the same draw as an Usher but has not been given the chance or the professional machine to achieve that feat.

    I’m surprised at the response most of you guys are giving to Miguel b/c he’s speaking firmly yet humbly. It’s didn’t it was cocky to say that you know who you are, know your lane and you would like for other people to know who they are and find their lane. Also, I think people like Brandy, who I think is so talented, need to take notes. There’s nothing I despise more than when artist feel pressed about having their hottest peer feature on their album to get attention. Brandy is trying to make a come back and decided to dedicate both of her leading singles to features. smh Right but wrong move… it will def get people snapping and liking the single but I won’t get her the respect she needs to sustain and reemerge as a power house. Say what you want but I bet Miguel has your attention. Rather he’s infamous or famous in your eyes now, if he backs what he’s talking, you will walk away respecting him and he will be here for years to come. I respect stern yet humble people who say what they mean and mean with they say. I’ma be a beast and you can a beast too type people… Death to everybody following suit and ft Chris Brown, 2 Chainz and blah… can we focus on your talent first? Shit… I hate that Ciara!!!! Love you but hate that you are being a follower… so not the move upon a return! Ok, I’m done…smh

    [Reply]

    SdotB Reply:

    @Knows Greatness, let’s be honest…this generation of music has A VERY SHORT ATTENTION SPAN!! So yes, having a feature that is “hot” is a smart business move…that’s how it’s always been…top artists get more attention for feats…

    Now i say this…as long as the feature adds something of quality to the record, then it’s all good…if the feature is just on the record just to be on the record with no quality input, then yes….that’s a copout move…

    [Reply]

    Knows Greatness Reply:

    @SdotB, yeah, it’s smart… I agree but I think what Miguel was saying features aren’t needed. If he was to get a quality ft it would def add but he wants to prove him and his music can stand alone. In doing so people will appreciate and be able to focus on his talents first. That mindset set is what I explain to people often as being selfish at the right time. As a rising artist who truly believes in their talents and craft… I def think being selfish and wanting consumers to see you first is risky but if pulled off… a damn good move. But yeah, again.. you are right…. smart it is. But I’m def a risk taker./lol

    Miguel >>>>> Chris Brown, Trey Songz,Jeremih, Omarion

Chris Brown has quality, honey. He would border line be on Trey Songz level if he didn’t have QUALITY. He wasn’t even relevant in the music industry for two years and came back slaying because of QUALITY. Usher? Going off his upcoming album, you might want to sit your ass DOWN. Usher just went pop and doesn’t even know how to. Ne-Yo ass done went pop. Chris Brown has ALWAYS been original. Who does Miguel think he is? Prince and Morris Day. But that’s original right? DON’T.

Usher’s new album is mess, only because he decided to seek pop and that’s not really his strong hold. You clearly see things from a different view, but Chris Brown and Usher are the best R&B male artist doing it. That was stupid to put him in a category with flopping artist. Miguel need to humble himself because he is in NO position to be cocky. Point blank.

But yeah, all Chris music isn’t the best thing walking but they all have the instant commercial/radio appeal so that the audience is attracted.

    [Reply]

    Miles Reply:

    @Knows Greatness, I think Chris Brown is incredibly talented. But IMO the quality of his music is just slightly above average. He is mainly an incredible dancer. I dnt think he is original solely because every song is about sex, money, and love. The same thing every r&b artist I compared him to are all about. And he works with the same producers every single album
    To me, singers like Usher reinvents himself evry album
    Miguel has a more versatile sound and a more refreshing and soothing voice to me(no homo)
    And then there are artist like Frank Ocean who Sing about wider topics such as abortions, the war n Iraq, and drugs. Thats more original to me

    [Reply]

    Liyah Reply:

    @Miles, Wait, most of Usher and Miguel’s music is about sex and love as well. I think all R&B artist have more records that do. All of Chris music isn’t about just those three either. Chris just opened to singing/rapping about current life issues. You should consider looking that up. Frank Ocean is great. Miguel reminds me of Llyod and Prince. You can compare him to so many artist. That’s what I don’t like. What he’s doing, I hear a lot these days. Chris didn’t get signed for being a dancer. The guy has a gift. He’s producing, directing, writing, singing, rapping, drawing, and dancing. He also has his own toy. He never wanted to be typical urban. He wanted to be more like MJ and Stevie Wonder because they were able to cross over to different genres. That’s a motive all artist should have. Miguel has talent but that whole bubbly moment you just had, doesn’t suit. Chris gives music for all. If you want a dance record, he has it. Inspirational record, he has it. Soothing, he has it. Baby making, he has it. Hood, he has it. THAT’S why he’s one of the best artist of our time.

    Miles Reply:

    @Liyah, Yeah But back in the day Usher was more creative with his music. For Exp. Confessions was a story completely made up that have nothing to do with his life. And Miguel is a very descriptive artist, For Example, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. no I hate, I just dn’t Chris Brown is a extrodinary artist musically. I think he a pretty Decent Director. F.A.M.E is the only thing i can give him the was a near perfect cd. Everything else was just Average. Most major hip-hop fans will tell anyone that CB is a decent rapper but he is nowhere near great.

    Liyah Reply:

    @Miles, Confessions was his best album; most definitely. That still doesn’t change where he stands today. A lot of critics think that album was based off of true events because his relationship crashed right after. Yes, he denied but artist tell lies to stay out of the media. So, idk about that. Every artist has that one best album. I think Chris’ best album was Graffiti. The realest stuff I’ve heard from a R&B artist in quite some time. But if you’re talking about “fake” stories put into music, you still need to do your research. Miguel needs to step it up, not be cocky. Chris is rapping, not becoming a strict rapper. So, obviously he isn’t the best, but he does have a few bars on his hands.

    [...] Check out the video Interview and Miguel’s Warning. [...]

  44. Kahari

    Miguel is clearly having a moment of cockiness. And it’s quite surprising to see someone so new into the industry as an artist try to cement their musical imprint. Mind you, Miguel’s musical journey has been a slow one—his debut album only sold 11,000 copies and quickly fell off the charts. And it wasn’t until nearly a year after his first single flopped (“All I Want Is You” feat. J. Cole—even the hottest anticipated rapper couldn’t save that record), “Sure Thing” saved him. The critics panned the musical style as inconsistent and weak vocal ability. To this day, All I Want Is You is barely at 250,000 units.

    Many people have complained about his artistry on social networks about his unprofessionalism (being late to his own shows) and overly sexual stage tactics (groping himself, stimulating masturbation, and his effeminate clothing style). As far as his music goes, the album was good. It was a eclectic mix: R&B, reggae, electra, Hip-Hop. Nothing as innovative as he is caking it up to be. Besides, other artist are mixing genres of music just like he did with All I Want Is You. Like Dawn Richard, for instance. The traditional R&B sound has become something more futuristic and electronic based, however singing is no longer at the base of this, but a more rapping like-singy song style that many R&B artist have adapted to.

    I don’t know if Miguel is as arrogant as he seemed in this interview or if he strongly believes in himself and his artistry, but we can only wait and see if this upcoming album is as “progressive” as he states it to be. Until then, this interview has left a bittersweet taste in my mouth about him as a artist.

    True innovation usually speaks for itself, if not suddenly, it will down the road

    I appreciate when entertainers try to do unique things, but when you have to make announcements about how different you are, it comes off as a try hard

    Without his little ‘declaration’, we could already tell he was trying to be unique…the profane speech about the obvious only makes him seem desperate

    And if your truly unique, no one can copy it, they can only imitate

    Miguel, if you’re trying to be baby Morris Day or the male Erykah Badu, then by all means shut-up, do you, and release the album…

    most of y’all (especially the guys) are never as creative as they try so hard to be anyway

    @Chris Brown Lost, Chris Brown doesn’t really resemble anyone. If anything, people will say MJ, dancing wise, but no. His style is different and he came in the music industry always being R&B/Pop. He does think he’s a thug though, lmfao. His fans laugh that off but when someone places a opinion, that doesn’t mean they’re stans. I could call you a hater but hell, I don’t give a fuck about you so, yeah lmfao.

    @Risky, You’re bugging, the whole bad boy rep, the whole R&B vulgarity and personality was modeled after Bobby Brown’s early career. Chris Brown is strongly mimicking Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown, Usher and Ginuwine. Its nothing new. Learn your music and # Try again!

    @Ken Barbie, You know what’s funny? I’ve NEVER seen anyone compare him to those people except MJ. Chris Brown doesn’t sound, look, sing, nor dance (he’s way better) like Usher. Ginuwine? Really? I’m literally on the floor CRYING. What is he doing? What did he do? Those two artist are strictly R&B. Chris has ALWAYS been R&B and pop. I can’t. Chris IDOLIZE Michael Jackson. Usher is the same way except Chris shows it more. Don’t even with Bobby Brown. Chris ain’t no where near him. He showed progress. Get that ass on the correction path. Chris thinks he’s a thug but he’s not rolling around thinking he’s going to steal the crown, trying to be Lil Kim’s carbon copy. Shit, he isn’t even going pop to sell records and didn’t kill a baby. TRY AGAIN, BOO!

    @Ken Barbie, Um, he’s working on that “mentally” issue. You don’t change overnight but he has grown throughout these past years. Smh, barbie.

    I think this guy needs to humble himself a little more instead of “threatening” other artists. This is another example of unprofessionalism in him as an artist, just like last year when he bitched about not being nominated for a Grammy. Let’s all be honest, his music wasn’t hot enough to get that type of recognition. & in what way did he bring “real R&B” back? This is the same dude who said Lloyd was copying his style, what lol?!? Just shut up, make your music, humble yourself & all the rest will come into place. He’s giving the idea that he’s original, but I’m sure most beg to differ. I don’t check for his music or what he doing, but I’ll respect the hustle.

    LOL HE REALLY NEEDS TO CALM DOWN! ive been a fan of his since 2006. The buzz around him has only JUST begun. I dont like the way he conducted himself in this interview, from the “lane” comment and the unnecessary swearing. His tweets are even becoming very arrogant. Maybe after being 15years in the industry is this type of talk acceptable, even then it probably would sound pathetic. He needs to be careful otherwise he will just be known as that person who is angry at the industry but is seen a nothing but a joke.

    Miguel is a good artist but he should be more humble.
    Michael Jackson was multi-talented and very humble about it, that’s why he was so successful as a singer/dancer/songwriter/producer. The public love people who are confident but humble about their gifts/abilities/talents. Michael was a legend but was not cocky despite the level of success he achieved, he did not let the fame and fortune go to his head. To this day he still has the best selling album of all time “Thriller” which was released in 1987. R.I.P. To The Legend!
