The Mix Tape: “Where’s the Fun in Forever?”

Miguel and Alicia Keyes offer some soulful answers

If your kids are in the deep questions phase, and one happen to be “Mommy, what is soul?” then go ahead and turn them over to Miguel. Over a steady, strong beat, the darling of the R &B world muses on the meaning of time. “ Tomorrow’s just a day away/ Tomorrow isn’t promised/ Where’s the fun in forever?” Throughout his new album, Kaleidoscope Dream, Miguel’s voice is at once smooth and raw, melodic and piercing, with the occasional falsetto that blows you away. By the time Alicia Keys joins him in this track, the message is perfectly clear: celebrate, it’s the moment that counts.
