Whoa: Miguel just made a power move by giving his Wildheart single ‘Simplethings’ a major upgrade — the single enlisted Chris Brown and hot rapper of the moment Future for an interesting remix. It works pretty damn well, too.

Check out the “re-lit” version of ‘Simplethings’ below.

Today, A$AP Rocky reveals his new visual for the very emotional ‘Everyday’, which features assistance from Rod Stewart, Miguel and Mark Ronson. The clip — which was directed by Emmanuel Cossu and Fleur & Manu — was shot in L.A., London and Paris and focuses in on “fame and over-indulgence”…it also seems to tell its “Hip-Hop Hollywood story” backwards, so make sure you watch until the end.

You can enjoy the clip in full via Apple Music (or click the image above).

In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, Miguel has managed to both qualm and re-fuel his seemingly one-sided rivalry with Frank Ocean.

Even after apparently running into Ocean in London, Miguel had no problem maintaining his competitive spirit:

We’re, er, cordial. I wouldn’t say we were friends… To be completely honest — and no disrespect to anyone — I genuinely believe that I make better music, all the way around.

Miguel’s comments follow his defiant refusal to give a standing ovation after losing to Ocean for Best Urban Contemporary Album at the 2013 Grammy Awards. Much like then, Ocean hasn’t responded.

UPDATE: Miguel has since responded to the internet’s take on his Sunday Times interview (via Twitter):
