Riff: Miguel – “Adorn”

Nov 27, 2012

Baby these fists/Will always protect ya, lady

from Adorn lyrics by Miguel

Miguel’s slow, electro-soul jam showcases some tasteful falsetto vocal riffing, and the central lyric “adorn” single-handedly provides imagery of luxurious pampering, which I’m not the first to notice. Extra props to Miguel for also producing “Adorn” himself; it’s good enough to convert any skeptic.
