MG-CSBW1

My oh my is this a piece of art to behold! This morning a wonderful surprise surfaced from my favorite music Artist, and hopefully yours too or soon to be. Miguel is taking over as one of R&Bs greatest Renaissance Artists of our day and time. Not yet available exclusively on VEVO but through his personal account on VIMEO you will find it. “Candles In The Sun, Blowing In The Wind” is one of his most politically charged songs to date from his sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dream. If you’ve been following his progression before his major Grammy win for Best New R&B Song “Adorn” you will know about his EP series Art Dealer Chic: Vol 1-3, which is also available for download on my blogizine if you want to check it out. The song was on Vol. 3 so I’ve known about it and glad to hear it because it gives him depth. It shows he is not just singing about love and carnal desire but also what’s happening in the world around him. He’s thinking about more than you think. If you’re able to listen to his commentary from Kaleidoscope Dream you will get the 411 on his thoughts behind this track. You may want to subscribe to his newsletter to know about the latest work he releases because I’m telling you it’s mind provoking.

So let’s talk about his latest masterpiece. The black and white creates exactly the right mood to speak about the world and what’s happening in it. Besides being utterly handsome and bad a** sexy there’s no possibility you can turn away. Let me put my fan crush thoughts to the side because that is the purpose here. Miguel wanted to make sure he was not viewed as a “sex” symbol, even though I’m sure he doesn’t mind (check out his physique for God’s sake!) “Candles In The Sun, Blowing In The Wind” speaks to all of us whether we live richly, luxuriously, moderately, poorly, and even down on our luck. We are living in a depressed state, and for many spiritual people “in the end of times.”

Whether you believe that or not we need to focus more on each other and what we’re doing in our lives. Pay attention to what’s happening around you, help others, give from your heart, change the scheme of things. We can make it happen if we just realize and try. I could go on a self-righteously pious rant about how we have lost our way but seriously though we have forgotten how to be kind to each other. Ellen Degeneres uses this phrase as part of her salutation after EVERY show, “Be kind to one another.” Don’t you think we’re put here for more than what is best for ourselves?

Timeless & Classic in its making you will find your grandchildren, and generations ahead who will reflect back on the meaning and purpose of this man’s work. There lies a much deeper and meaningful soul in Miguel, our youth, my generation. We just need an outlet to express it and for anyone and everyone to pay attention.  Keep and eye out for more work from him because he’s up there sky high with all the movers and shakers. It’s time for us to change our way of thinking for a better life for our children to see.  Also Available on TheWellVersed.

Below is the message he’s trying to convey:

John Lennon: There’s no separation, we’re all one. Right?

Diamond in the back,
Babies on crack,
Kickin’ the door,
(We’re all one.)
Waving the four four.

Is there a God?
Is he watching?
Is she watching?
Are they watching now?
If not, what are we doing?
Where are we going?
What are we doing now?
Look at all these people
Searching for a reason,
Searching for a piece of mind. Hey!
They say we’re all created equal,
That’s what they teach us,
But that ain’t how we treat each other other other other
Nah that ain’t how we treat each other other other other
The truth is that we need each other other other other, yeah.

Diamond in the back,
Babies on crack,
Kickin’ the door,
Waving the four four
White-collared war crime, money gets spent
Just candles in the sun, blowing in the wind
Sun goes down.
Heroes often get shot
Peace has long been forgot got got got
Ohh will it be too late fore we find out?
We’re all that we got
Take a look around now
We’re all that we got.
Just take a look around
We’re all that we got

Business and governments just watch as the innocent fade.
Mindless bureaucracy fails, hindering government aid.

Are you appalled?
Are you watching?
What are we doing?
Where are we going?

Diamond in the back,
Babies on crack,
(Oh yeah)
Kickin’ the door,
Waving the four four
(Oh yeah)
White-collared war crime, money gets spent
Candles in the sun, blowing in the wind
(Take a look around)
Sun goes down.
(Look around)
Heroes often get shot
Peace has long been forgot got got got
Oh will it be too late once we find out?
We’re all that we got
(Yeah yea)
We’re all that we got
(Yeah yea)
We’re all that we got
Diamond in the back,

Peace has long been forgot got got got
Oh will it be too late when we find out yea?

John Lennon:

I used to think that the world was doing to me.
(Yeah baby)
And that the world owed me something.
And that either the Conservatives or the Socialists
Or the Fascists or the Communists or the Christians
Or the Jews or the Fascists were doing something to me.
I don’t think that anymore cause I found out it doesn’t f*cking work.
Most assholes just accept what it is anyway and get on with it, right?
So for the few of us who did question what was going on,
I have found out personally not for the whole world, that there’s no separation. We’re all one.
