Miguel has spoken to NME about scoring his first-ever UK Top 10 with his 2011 single ‘Sure Thing’, following the track’s recent resurgence on TikTok.In January, Miguel shared a video of himself performing an acoustic version of the track, writing in the caption: “YOU GUYS GOT ME CHARTING BEFORE I GET THIS NEW ONE OFF !
APPRECIATE ALL THE LOVE FOR SURE THING.”‘Sure Thing’, the second single from Miguel’s 2010 debut studio album ‘All I Want Is You’, has so far been used in over four million videos on TikTok – resulting in the track shooting up the charts in the US as well as the UK.“‘Sure Thing’ had been one of the songs that I always felt had something special,” Miguel told NME. “I was a struggling artist here in LA, not making any money but trying to get on however I could.
Writing was one of the things allowing me to get into rooms and to start writing for artists but I had no real placements at the time.”The track was originally written in 2007 and almost made it onto Usher‘s fifth studio album ‘Here I Stand’, after the singer showed an interest.
Instead of giving the track to Usher though, Mark Pitts – the now-President of RCA Records – flew Miguel out to New York and signed him to Jive Records, which eventually became part of RCA. “That was the reason I really got in through the door and then it was the songs around that that kind of solidified it.”A post shared by Miguel (@miguel)When ‘Sure Thing’ started gaining momentum earlier this year, it was the same Mark Pitts that broke the news to Miguel.Read more on nme.com
