From Director X to Diversity, Miguel Gives Us the Inside Scoop on His 'Sky Walker' Video
You NEED to see this...
Two and half years after the release of his critically acclaimed LP Wildheart, Miguel is finally ready to share his next album with us. War & Leisure will be available to purchase and stream this Friday and it's safe to say that we can't wait to hear it in full.
From its hit lead single to its sublime instant grats, it sounds like War & Leisure could be Miguel's best album to date.
We caught up with the 'Adorn' star recently to give us an MTV Laid Bare commentary on the 'Sky Walker' video:
Talking about the direction of the stunning visual, Miguel says: "I definitely wanted to keep everything light for this video so it was fun to work with Director X and just kind of get on the same page in that sense. I think it's new territory for him too."
The 'Waves' singer also makes an exciting announcement about one of the shirts that stars in the music video.
"This shirt is a custom shirt that we made and designed and will release soon which is cool." We want it now!
Seriously, just the thought of being able to rock the same clothes as Miguel has gotten us super excited.
The 'Sure Thing' hitmaker also opens up about diversity in the exclusive interview. "One of the important parts to capture is diversity for sure", he mentions before adding: "I'm of mixed origins so it's always important to keep things diverse."
What a superstar. Representation is so important in media and it is great to see a singer consider that.
We adore this video and we adore Miguel even more after speaking to him. He's a legend.
