Miguel, Kaleidoscope Dream

Miguel grew up quickly on his second album, with the eccentric flair he’s always shown sartorially showing up in his music. Spotlighted by the breezy “Adorn,” perhaps the year’s best R&B song, the LP combined smooth ’80s R&B and futuristic electro touches to create its own unique, fully formed aesthetic.
