“It’s so easy to ignore what’s right in front of us sometimes. I wanted to create a song and visual that addressed my everyday concerns of life as I know it in the world that we live in,” says Miguel of “Candles in the Sun.” Veering from the sensual, bedroom grooves of his Billboard-topping hit singles, the artist trades bedsheets and candlelight for the church and the streets in his latest track, showing versatility and willingness to ponder both spiritual and social issues. New and premiering on HYPEBEAST is the new video for “Candles in the Sun,” directed by Sarah McCoolghan and presented here in stark black and white while providing another example of the voice and songwriting that puts Miguel squarely amongst R&B’s brightest acts. The artist’s sophomore effort, Kaleidoscope Dream, is available now in-store or online.
