Miguel, "Sure Thing"

"All I Want Is You" auteur Miguel proves he's not a one-hit wonder with his 2010 debut album's second single, "Sure Thing," a catchy ode to pristine love that has made waves on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The R&B singer/songwriter demonstrates the strength of his passion by dropping slick metaphors like "You can be the cash, I'll be the rubber band . . . I'm the reporter, baby, you can be the news." The lyrics are paired with laid-back production punctuated by sporadic thumps and looping flute-like sounds. While the melody of "Sure Thing" initially hooks the ear of the listener, the real draw is the chopped-and-screwed portion of the chorus: A slowed-down male voice harmonizes along with Miguel, adding a hint of edgy hip-hop to the soft R&B track.
