Miguel chops it up with Shaheem Reid about his (2)dope collaboration with J. Cole.

“I remember talking to [‘All I Want Is You’ producer] Salam [Remi] and him saying, ‘Just be honest,’ ” Miguel said about the song’s lyrics. “I’m excited about it. I didn’t get to be in the studio with J. Cole. I recorded the song, and Mark Pitts at Jive — who happens to be a part of J. Cole’s management as well — I remember the call. It was 3 o’clock in the morning, and Mark called me like, ‘Yo, it’s crazy! I’mma play it for Cole.’ He played it for him, and Cole said he liked it. I’m looking forward to getting on [Cole’s] forthcoming album, hopefully. Maybe.”

Miguel also speaks on his upcoming album.

“The album is what I would describe as being ‘eclec-tric,’ ” he said. “It’s in tone with keeping hip-hop as a base, because that’s what I grew up on, but including and infusing styles such as classic rock and funk. I think people will be excited to hear how we mix that together.”

Definitely excited for both albums. Should be great music overall.
