Miguel is giving his fans a chic series of gifts…
The 26-year-old half-Mexican singer-songwriter will be releasing three new EPs this summer, entitled the Art Dealer Chic series.
“This time it’ll be bigger and better,” Miguel told VIBE. “I intend on having limited-edition apparel with them, so it’ll be really dope.”
Similar to Miguel’s first series, the upcoming EPs will feature three tracks each.
There aren’t any details as to whether the second series will lead into his third album, just as his smash-hit single “Adorn” segued into his critically acclaimed sophomore album, Kaleidoscope Dream.
Miguel is also working on the remix and video for the Kaleidoscope Dream track, “How Many Drinks,” which will feature Kendrick Lamar.
“Kendrick is poised to be the next staple in hip-hop [and] I certainly intend on becoming that for R&B. I don’t get that vibe that he’s putting on… I just feel like he’s just being honest in his music. Newer, younger artists, that’s what we’re all striving to do. Just be ourselves. Kendrick is one of the best examples of that,” he said.
He added that his collaboration with Lamar will “sound like a breath of fresh air.” The track is set to debut this month.
Aside from working on new music, Miguel is currently on tour with Alicia Keys and will be performing at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, airing live on ABC from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 19.
