Miguel dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (December 5) to perform rising hit “Sky Walker” with Travis Scott. Already his biggest hit since “Adorn,” the hazy stoner-anthem is perfect sing-along fare for the talk show’s outdoor stage and the R&B singer exuded joy as he bounced around stage. With the track steadily climbing the Billboard Hot 100 and rave reviews for new LP, War & Leisure, it looks like the 32-year-old can finally put the commercial disappointment of Wildheart behind him.
“Last year was one of those years for me where I think I was really beating myself up about the reception of my last project and it not being as successfully accepted or embraced on a commercial level,” Miguel told Blag magazine earlier this year. “There’s a way to quantify everything now and when you realize how people start to treat you differently it really starts to fuck with you… I started to really kind of create this facade, it was like a caricature of myself. Like, everything’s cool, everything’s alright but like really, it’s not.”
