DJ Premier and Miguel Team Up for Smoldering Ballad ‘2 Lovin U’
Back in 2014, DJ Premier and Miguel teamed up on a song called “Damned” that never had an official release. On Tuesday (Feb. 21), Premo dropped the final version of the track, which is now called “2 Lovin U.”
“The snippet you heard on Miguel’s Instagram, mine is the original” DJ Premier said via a press release. 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," he continues. "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."
The smoldering ballad features groovy electric guitars and Premo's signature turnable scratches. On the song, Miguel sings about his addiction to the sweet loving of his ladylove.
"When the gavel hit the stand / I'm damned of loving you / Two palm trees in the sand / I'm damned of loving you now / We set fire to these skies for our love and I'd do it all again / I'm damned of loving you," he sings.
"2 Lovin U" is the first release from Premier’s new imprint TTT (To The Top) and is available on various digital platforms including Soundcloud and iTunes.
