Miguel Covers SZA’s ‘The Weekend’

Miguel takes on SZA.

Shortly after teaming up with RL Grime and Dua Lipa, Miguel unleashes an a cappella rendition of SZA’s rising Ctrl single, “The Weekend.”

Pacing around an art gallery, the R&B crooner belted out the Solana smash, while changing some of its lyrics. “Fuck w me,” he wrote. “Last weeks most requested song off @sza new album #CTRL, ‘weekend.’ Foxy-ass song, definitely a favorite of mine on the album.”

Fans should expect more covers soon. “What Isley Brothers song should I cover next week?” he asked. “This shit is fun. Peep the shirt too. Got a lot of heat coming.”

Prior to this, Miguel also covered André 3000’s “Pink & Blue” off OutKast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below and Charlie Puth’s “Attention.”

Miguel is just the latest artist to be inspired by “The Weekend,” which was also remixed by K Camp last month.

Miguel is performing at Drai’s Rooftop Nightclub in Las Vegas on Aug. 19. After that, he will head to Brazil for Rock in Rio 2017 and then New Orleans for the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience.

Video: K Camp – ‘Good Problem’

K Camp turns his life into art in the video for his latest single, “Good Problem.”

Helmed by director Sharef Alabede, the artistic visual was shot inside of a Los Angeles gallery, where a giant-sized King Slum towers over elderly visitors. Elsewhere, Camp is surrounded by lovely models in neon-colored exhibits.

According to the rapper-singer’s camp, the video is meant to symbolize a celebrity’s relationship with the public. However, it explains how, in K Camp’s world, that’s a “Good Problem” to have.

Before releasing the video, King Slum announced that “Good Problem” and his previously-released song “Racks Like This” are “for the culture.”

In between those tracks, King Slum also appeared in the video for Snoop Dogg’s “Trash Bags” and remixed SZA’s “The Weekend.”

Up next, Camp is working on the follow-up to his 2015 debut, Only Way Is Up.
