Miguel has been teasing a Spanish-language project since 2012 and today he delivers with his new EP Te Lo Dije.
The five-track set consists of Spanish remakes from his 2017 album War & Leisure, including the previously-released “Banana Clip” and “Sky Walker,” plus a Spanish duet of “Carmelo Duro” featuring Kali Uchis. Other collaborations include “Criminal” with Spanish rapper C. Tangana and the title track “Te Lo Dije” (“Told You So”) with Grammy-winning Mariachi band La Flor De Toloache.
In 2012, the Mexican-American singer shared his Spanish aspirations. “I want to be able to write an entire song in Spanish, but I’m practicing my Spanish now just so I can get it,” Miguel told Power 106. “Songs in Spanish are so poetic. I think that’s one of my favorite things about Latino music, and the rhyme scheme is completely different. So I’m really nervous to do it, I don’t want it to be bad, but I’m really excited to do it.”
Miguel previously teamed up with Natalia Lafourcade on the Oscar-winning “Remember Me (Dúo)” off the soundtrack for Disney/Pixar’s Coco.
