New Comer Miguel Jontel Talks (Again) About Usher With Singersroom!
LA TRADUCTION EN FRANCAIS DE L’INTERVIEW EST DESORMAIS DISPONIBLE A LA FIN DE L’ARTICLE!
Singersroom: What are some of the projects you’ve worked on that you’re most proud of?
Miguel:I’d say Usher’s project. His new one that’s about to come out. I was involved in the creation of that one from top to bottom. I don’t have a whole lot of songs on there but I was around for that process. I was involved with the last one, just not as much. The last project wasn’t received very well but I really feel like the fans will really appreciate and gravitate towards this one. It’s classic Usher in the sense that he sounds amazing on the records, but then it’s edgy in the sense that’s he’s reaching out to his immediate family, the people that’s been with him since the beginning, and just a more “worldly” audience. I think everyone at this point is reaching out to a broader audience because we’re realizing that there’s a whole world out there.
Singersroom: You’re an artist as well as a writer so you’re attachment to your work must be stronger than someone who is only one or the other. Have you ever had a song concept or idea that you couldn’t let go of?
Miguel: Yes. It’s happened but it’s very rare. Like working on Usher’s project, he understands the creative process. Usher is a very good friend of mine. I have a tremendous amount of respect for him as an artist and performer. He knows about passion. He understands how passionate artists can be about their work. He knows the emotion that comes with writing a song and creating music so he’ll say write it out. He’ll let me write it out and we see where it goes.
