Hollywood’s latest Rom-Com, “Crazy Rich Asians” arrived in theaters in the United States on Wednesday, Aug. 15. On Thursday, one of the tracks from its soundtrack arrived on YouTube and streaming services in the form of a lively track from Miguel titled “Vote.” The single was reportedly produced by pop producer and Mark Ronson and Hudson Mohawke, and can be heard in full in the audio-only video seen above. Ronson and Miguel had previously both worked together on the single "Everyday" from ASAP Rocky’s 2015 studio album, At. Long.
The funky pop single showcases Miguel at his best, leading the way with his high energy, enthusiastic vocal melodies to go with a solid dance beat. Contrary to the song’s title in a hot political climate, “Vote” isn’t quite pushing any specific democratic or republican agenda. That is, unless you consider “Voting for a good time,” as Miguel enthusiastically sings in the chorus as an important issue, which this writer certainly does. The track is just one of a select few pop songs that are featured on the film’s soundtrack, in addition to various versions of “Money (That’s What I Want),” pertaining to one of the very wealthy families in the film.
Miguel will head out on his end-of-summer North American “Ascension Tour” with special guest DVSN, starting with a show in Boston on Aug. 23. The tour is set to run until Sept. 28 with a final show at Seattle’s WaMu Theater. Miguel recently provided his fans with a new single just in time for the tour with “Python,” a track not featured on his 2017 studio album, War & Leisure. Notable stops on the upcoming tour include a run throughout southern California at Los Angeles's Greek Theatre, as well as the Santa Barbara Bowl in mid-September.
