Having just completed his sold-out spring tour in early April, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Miguel has announced that he will embark on a North American tour this fall in support of his critically praised fourth studio album, War & Leisure.
«Sky Walker,» Miguel's lead single off of War & Leisure, reached #1 on the Rhythmic and Urban radio charts and has been Certified Platinum by the RIAA, making it one of the fastest rising hits of early 2018. At the beginning of March, Miguel released a new version of «Sky Walker» in Spanish, and teased the upcoming release of new Spanish language versions of some of the prominent singles and album tracks from War & Leisure. Adding to the highlights of the first half of 2018, Miguel joined Mexican pop singer Natalie Lafourcade at the 90th Academy Awards to perform the Oscar and Golden Globe award winning Best Original Song «Remember Me» from the critically-acclaimed Pixar film Coco. Continuing with his newfound soundtrack success, Miguel also makes an appearance on the soundtrack for the remake of the iconic 1972 film Superfly with his new song «R.A.N». The soundtrack was co-produced and curated by Future.
War & Leisure has continued its growth in 2018; Miguel performed a solo rendition of the J. Cole featured album highlight «Come Through and Chill» on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in April. Since War & Leisure, Miguel has partnered with Norwegian producer sensation Kygo on Billboard Dance/Electronic top charting single «Remind Me to Forget,» which the pair performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in May.
Miguel and LA based alternative Latino rock band Chicano Batman recently partnered up with mitú for its TÚGETHER series. In the series, they borrow ingredients from each other’s hits to create a genre-bending bilingual duet performance and collaborative effort of «Sky Walker» and “Black Lipstick.”
