Check Out: Miguel – “The Thrill” (live for Yours Truly)

Listen to our FAVORITE SONGS OF 2014 or LAUNCH PMA RADIO. Make sure you don't miss any tunes: FOLLOW US ON TWITTER.

A latecomer to the Year of Emotional R&B but nonetheless a contender for its crown is Miguel, the LA-based crooner whose Kaleidoscope Dream ranks among one of our favorite records of 2012. Yours Truly caught him and his full band performing album highlight “The Thrill” at San Francisco’s Different Fur studios – check it out at your own risk, and only if you have a cold shower on hand afterwards. Miguel’s a born performer, effortlessly sexy and commanding; even if you thought “The Thrill” sounded fantastic on the record, you haven’t heard anything yet. Watch and learn.
