I was never a fighter. I can’t think of one fight I ever had growing up, or into adulthood that required me to use my fists. Which is probably a good thing; because I’m a peaceful person.
That paragraph has absolutely nothing to do with today’s morning groove. I decided to go with something a bit more recent today. I can remember first hearing this song on an EP Miguel released several months before his second proper album came out in 2012. It was a shorter version of the song, but all the pieces were in place. The great vocal. That beat. The overall atmosphere that draws you in.
I remember the following year at the Grammys, Miguel sang this song, and Kelly Clarkson remarked that while she had never heard of him before, that it was the sexiest song she’d ever heard in her life. Which is saying something; because there have been a lot of sexy songs that have come and gone in her lifetime. Nevertheless, it’s one of my favorites from the last few years, and I’ve picked it for today.
Enjoy this Wednesday morning groove. I hope you like it as much as I do. And as always, thanks for reading and listening.
