Riff: Miguel – “Adorn”

Jan 4, 2013

Let my love adorn you baby/Don’t you ever/Don’t you let no one/Tell you different baby

from Adorn lyrics by Miguel

One of the keys to crafting a successful R&B song is remaining tasteful no matter what the subject matter. Here Miguel holds all the cards, and croons effortlessly over a mid tempo groover. He pulls heavily from the mid-90s, but his lyrics are fresh enough to avoid the dreaded nostalgic tag.
