New Music: DJ Premier & Miguel – “2 Lovin U”

DJ Premier and singer-songwriter Miguel combine forces on a new track titled “2 Lovin U,” which was produced by the legendary DJ.

Facing a few conflicts, the song (its original version) was never released until now.

“The snippet you heard on Miguel’s Instagram, mine is the original,” Premier said in a statement. “Miguel and I were vibing at a session and just really seeing what we could come up with. What we came up with was a dope, but rough version of what you hear today.”

The song was birthed from Premier’s new label To The Top aka TTT and was teased on ESPN‘s First Take and SportsCenter on this past Valentine’s Day.

“Wait until you see the video,” Premier says, as we should expect a visual very soon.

Check out the song in full above.
