Online enigma, Miquela‘s new single, “Right Back,” is a glorious r&b throwback jam that will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
Miquela, better known by her Instagram persona, Lil Miquela, is a fictional, digital-art character that portrays the life of an Insta-it girl – think the female version of Gorillaz.
The art project turned singer released her debut single, “Not Mine,” back in 2017 and has gone onto release a string since, but “Right Back” is by far her best offering.
Her previous tracks have relied heavily on altered vocals, but from what I can here, these vocals are largely untouched and they have an extremely old-school r&b vibe to them – think the heydays of the genre back in the early to mid-00s.
The production pulls inspiration from said times, but it incorporates newer elements like the breakdown in the chorus and along with its distinct summer vibes it’s the perfect jam for a pre-drink sesh.
Miquela might still be a mystery, but we’re still loving her music…can we get an album, please?!
