Video: Miguel f/ Kendrick Lamar – ‘How Many Drinks?’

Kendrick Lamar and Miguel

Miguel connects with Kendrick Lamar in the live performance video for the remix to “How Many Drinks?” After giving us a behind-the-scenes look, the R&B crooner rolls out the full video.

He performs against a red backdrop and gets a hand from some sexy ladies on background vocals. K-Dot, clad in an L.A. Kings jersey and patterned shirt and shorts, even gets on the mic and pretends to sing Miguel’s parts.

“I’m super excited about this video because I haven’t seen a live performance like we’ve done in a really long time,” said Miguel. “It was really important to capture the artistry and the performance, and almost elevate the integrity and the artistry of the song because it’s a pretty straightforward record.”

The song is the third single off Miguel’s sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dream.

    @Kate, he’s been dating his girlfriend for 7 years so I don’t know what you’re talking about. Great music, amazing singer.

    @Donny, exactly! someone with sense. my thought is why add any of that to the comment anyway “Love his music real R&B” would have been sufficient, none of that other shit has anything to do with the music or the video.

    @Donny, this is the best song on the album???? I guess but to me there are too many gems to decide. Dope track though. I feel like Kendrick wasn’t needed. The song was perfect without him.

    great song, video is great too. miguel has done wonders for r&b

    and why are people even talking about his sexuality here? how does it matter whether he fucks guys or girls? if it matters to you, when he doesn’t even know you exist, you have problems and need to get a life cos you’re just sad

    Damn.
    Can’t lie.
    R&B still alive thru Miguel.
    We need to stop compare artist with old artist.
    This is Miguel Jontel, nothing else.
    Gay or not, He got an unique talent that allow him to be a legend.

    Cool video, next single should be “The Thrill.” Def my favorite song on the album after “Adorn” & “Do You?”
