Miguel’s and DJ Premier were said to be working in the studio together after an IG post surfaced last year. That track, recorded during the making of Wildheart, mysteriously appeared in a different form, under the title “Damned,” when the album (which would be later nominated for two Grammy Awards) was officially released. Today, we not only get answers and closure, but the fans receive a pleasant surprise with the official release of a great new single featuring Hip-Hop icon DJ Premier and R&B superstar Miguel.
“The snippet you heard on Miguel’s Instagram, mine is the original” DJ Premier declared. Miguel and I were vibing at a session and just really seeing what we could come up with. What we came up with was a dope, but rough version of what you hear today. Miguel and I had deadlines and we never got around to finishing it. We both really believed in this version of the track and we both felt very strongly that it needed to come out and be released as a single” Miguel and I approached the label about releasing it and everyone was on-board” Premier clarified.
