In "Do You…," the second single from Miguel’s Kaleidoscope Dream LP, the wickedly gifted (if occasionally a little cheeseball) LA singer/songwriter enlists as love interest his real-life, actual, longtime girlfriend, Nazanin Mandi, looking something like the Vanity to Miguel's Prince. The entire song is a hook, basically, its questions swimming in and out of the track—Do you like drugs? Do you like love?—before washing onto a classic R&B conclusion, but one cleverly conceived: I'ma do you like drugs tonight. Kaleidoscope Dream is out now, and it's fantastic.
