Talib Kweli Premieres ‘Come Here’ Featuring Miguel
Over a soundbed of melodic soul, the Brooklyn rhyme-slinger complements a beautiful woman that catches his eyes.
“Your whole style is colder than Minnesota / I love the profile the way you look over shoulders,” he raps, adding, “We can do it like Barack and Michelle, gimme a fist bump / Do it ’til we rockin’ the bells, you like hip-hop / Promise you I’m not gonna tell, we keep our lips locked.”
Miguel’s smooth vocals give the song its romantic vibe and, honestly, it’s been a long time since we’ve heard a rap ballad that didn’t make us cringe.
‘Come Here’ will appear on Kweli’s upcoming album, ‘Prisoner of Conscious.’ The collection, due in stores May 7, boasts several guest features including Melanie Fiona, Kendrick Lamar, Busta Rhymes and Ryan Leslie.
“[I] tried to stretch my wings a bit and bring something that was less beholden to the world of hip-hop and more existing in the world in general,” says Talib Kweli about the album. “To celebrate my hip-hop roots but still have it in newer packages.”
