Miguel – Sky Walker ft. Travis Scott

Miguel and Travis Scott soar on “Sky Walker.” After a pretty quiet year, San Pedro singer Miguel is back with an atmospheric banger called “Sky Walker.” Whether he’s metaphorically embodying Luke, Leia, or Anakin is anybody’s guess; perhaps it’s an amalgamation of all three.

Either way, the force is with him on this brand new track, which features the enigmatic Travis Scott in a rare guest appearance. The duo have a previous history of collaboration, having previously connected on Miguel’s Rogue Waves EP, for a remix of the somewhat titular track “Waves.”

Now, Miguel and Travis have teamed up yet again, and to nobody’s surprise, the instrumental is perfectly in keeping with Scott’s perceived persona – low key, mysterious, slightly drugged out. Driven by some smooth vocals from Miguel, “Sky Walker” is a solid blend of party track and introspective banger.

However, there does remain a catch – as of now, the song is not officially released in North America, which considerably limits its reach. Yet somehow, many people have already been bumping this joint, so as they say, where there’s a will there’s a way.

“Nonchalant got the green on rotation all,” sings Miguel, “we gon’ keep it psychedelic.” As you can probably guess from the lyrical content, the subject matter is a celebration on the more creative side-effects of inebriation. While it’s not exactly clear what sort of connection any of this has to Star Wars, “Sky Walker” works adequately as a double meaning, emphasizing the heights of a peak drug trip.

Travis Scott is set to drop his upcoming Astroworld 2 project, well, any time now. Stay tuned for more from Miguel and Travis, including an official link to the full version as soon as it drops.
