Miguel goes bilingual on “Remember Me,” a ranchera-style duet with Natalia Lafourcade off the soundtrack to Disney/Pixar’s upcoming animated movie, Coco.
“Remember me, though I have to travel far,” sings the R&B crooner. “Remember me each time you hear a sad guitar / Know that I’m with you the only way that I can be / Until I’m in your arms again, remember me.”
Inspired by Día de Los Muertos, the 3D computer-animated musical fantasy adventure Coco stars Anthony Gonzalez as a 12-year-old aspiring musician named, appropriately enough, Miguel. The movie hits theaters on Nov. 22.
The real life Miguel is currently prepping for the release of his anticipated fourth studio album, War & Leisure. The album has already spawned the singles “Sky Walker” feat. Travis Scott and “Shockandawe,” plus Miguel just debuted his politically-charged new song “Now” at the ‘Schools Not Prisons’ benefit event last week.
