R&B singer Miguel has warned artists to be careful considering "stepping into his lane."
There's no denying Miguel's popularity has grown in the last year with the release of tracks such as 'Sure Thing' and 'Quickie,' and collaborations with Wale and J. Cole. Despite being only at the beginning stages of his career, Miguel has warned other artists to not mess with his success.
''I’m just gonna say, don’t nobody out there step into my f**king lane. ''That’s all I’m going to say. Just stay in your lane. I’m a competitive person and the thing is I’m solidifying my lane and don’t f*cking come over here cause I will f*ck you up in that situation. But that’s how we’re supposed to be," Miguel told Power 99's Rise and Grind Morning Show.
The 'All I Want Is You' singer was keen to emphasis on the point of originality, adding:
''I’ve been saying I appreciate so many different kinds of music and what I don’t appreciate is…I want everyone to express themselves in a unique way. I think I’m saying that in an aggressive way because that’s how I really feel, but what I mean by that is; find your own thing to do and create your own lane. It’s not the easy way, but it creates longevity for you and I think that’s what I’m trying to encourage."
''Where I’m going, I’m really trying to take everybody with me, and I’m just saying, don’t come over here, I’ll f**k you up yo.
The 25-year-old recently released the trilogy of free EP's Art Dealer Chic Vol. 1-3 and is currently working on a full-length follow-up to his 2010 debut 'All I Want Is You'.
