R&B singer Miguel takes a step away from the baby making slow jam sound he has come up on in tracks like Adorn and Sure Thing, and dives a bit deeper in the thought provoking visuals for his latest single Candles In The Sun. Off his sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dream released last September, Candles In The Sun is a powerful track that covers politically fueled topics such as government interference, ramifications of drug filled communities, senseless violence, and questions the overall existence of God in a seemingly dark world. Miguel truly steps up his credibility as an artist in Candles In The Sun, proving he has much more to offer lyrically than a just great voice only capable of making the ladies swoon. The music video for Candles In The Sun is equally as powerful as the lyrics, using vivid black and white imagery of an often battered nation, these visuals will not only keep you gripped, they may also inspire some deeper introspection on the status of the United States. With shots surrounding drug abuse, violence, and the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, juxtaposed with scenes from a Sunday morning church service, these visuals are about as light as red velvet cake after Christmas dinner. I would encourage you to take a couple minutes to watch this video, if not to take something away from its message, then at least to witness the growth of an up-and-coming artist baring his soul, not trying to recreate just another radio slow jam.
