Miguel gives a stern verbal warning for the competition: “Stay out of his lane or he will “f**k you up.” The R&B performer is taking a tough stance when it comes to his music and those who try to imitate his style.
The 25-year-old is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to his 2010 debut All I Want Is You. “I would describe it as being progressive in the sense that I’m taking a lot of my more alternative influences and incorporating them.”
But those who attempt to adopt his sound should take caution. “I’m just gonna say, ‘Don’t nobody out there step into my fu**in’ lane. Stay where you’re at,’” he warned. “I’m a competitive person and what I’m saying is I’m solidifying my lane and don’t fu**ing come over here ’cause I will f**k you up.”
He explained himself further. “I want everyone to express themselves in a unique way. I’m saying that in an aggressive way ’cause that’s how I really feel, but what I mean by that is find your own thing to do and create your own lane.”
Don’t expect many features on his sophomore album. “I’m a man who wants to stand on his own two feet. I don’t need a fu**ing co-sign. I don’t need that shit,” he said, while adding, “I can’t tell you who I may feature on this next album, but I guarantee you that it will be unexpected.”
