Hot off his breathtaking sets at Coachella, Miguel gets us ready for summer with the brand new video for “Come Through and Chill” featuring J. Cole. The Salaam Remi-produced collaboration is a favorite off the R&B maverick’s 2017 album War & Leisure.
Directed by Kevin Calero, the visual goes behind-the-scenes of a music video set in an interesting twist, as Miguel gets intimate in some steamy and sensual scenes with his beautiful co-stars. J. Cole kicks off the clip at an old pay phone before he grabs the mic on stage while spitting slick game to a past lover.
“Since our last undressin’ session / I’m not really sure if you’ve been checkin’,” he raps. “I’m progressin’ / I just heard my songs is poppin’ out in Macedonia.”
In between performance shots, sensual dance sequences, and behind-the-curtains footage, Miguel finds himself in a love triangle. After chilling on a bed and sitting in front of a stage, he closes out the clip with a threesome.
“Get to takin’ that off, takin’ that off for me,” he sings. “Cause I got the plug, I made the call for green / I’m talkin’ late-night for you / Let me lay a great time on ya.”
J. Cole comes back in on a later verse, which is politically driven. “Know you’ve been on my mind like Kaepernick kneelin’ / Or police killings, or Trump sayin’ slick shit,” he raps. “Manipulatin’ poor white folks because they ignant / Blind to the struggles of the ones that got the pigment / Lately I’ve been stressin’ ’cause it seems so malignant.”
Miguel previously praised his “Chill” collaborator. “He’s good energy,” he said at the time. “I think that’s one of things that as fans of music, we really care when someone can capture our energy and take what they’re feeling and translate it. He’s always been exceptional at that. And so when he comes on, as like you said, when I first heard his verse too, I was like see. And then what he’s saying is just spot on. I think that’s what it is. Beyond music, I fuck with Cole, he’s fucking with me. We’re friends on the outside of this. Yeah. It’s an honor to have him as a friend, not only in music, but in general.”
