“Send my regards to the mother and father cause somebody’s daughter I just f—ing slayed,” Miguel sings on the hook of his new single “Funeral.” “Blood on the carpet, it came from my heart, once I start I can’t stop it and now we all pray.”
The smooth R&B crooner’s last effort was his 2017 album War & Leisure and his 2019 EP Te Lo Dije which was a five-track offering of songs from War & Leisure but in Spanish.
Miguel also appeared on Alicia Keys’ 2019 single “Show Me Love,” following his 2018 single “Python.” “Funeral” was released on Friday (Nov. 1), and Miguel took to Instagram to announce it.
“Tag me in your videos partying to this #FUNERAL out now everywhere,” he wrote alongside three knife emojis.
