On the day he drops his new album War & Leisure, Miguel hit up Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show to perform a cut off the album, “Sky Walker.”
The single features a guest verse from Travis Scott but he didn’t join the R&B singer for the performance. The video clip below shows Miguel putting on an electrifying performance with a giant parachute floating in the background. Watch the cut until the parachute drops because that’s where the party begins. You will be able to see more of the California singer in the coming months as he embarks on his upcoming tour to promote his new album.
Miguel also released a new music video for a cut off the project titled “Now.” The clip is a bit of a mini-documentary about undocumented immigrants in California. “To see innocent people being ripped from their way of life to essentially be incarcerated and used as cheap labor is really crazy,” the singer explains. “It’s the time now to speak out, and not only speak out, but do something about what we believe in if we want to see the change.”
The full album War & Leisure is currently available on iTunes and features guest verses from Rick Ross, J. Cole, and more artists.

Miguel released his new album War & Leisure last night around midnight and you can now get it on iTunes/Apple Music.
The project is the follow-up to his 2015 LP Wildheart, which was well received. War & Leisure features 12 tracks with guest appearances from J. Cole, Kali Uchis, Quin, Rick Ross, and Travis Scott. Rozay is featured on the new single “Criminal,” while J. Cole is on the previously released single “Come Through and Chill.” Scott is also on a previously released single “Sky Walker.”
Miguel is featured in the new issue of Paper magazine where he spoke about the album saying it reflects whats been happening in his personal life. “I want to be an artist whose personal life is really reflected in their music,” the R&B singer said. “If I didn’t include some of the things that are happening in the ethos and the things that I’m seeing and paying attention to and that I care about, if I didn’t include those topics in my music, I think it wouldn’t be a real, honest representation.”
