Miguel has been able to reach a significant chart milestone with his 2010 hit “Sure Thing” as he makes a comeback after being away from music for a while.
Chart Data reports that Miguel holds the record for the longest charting song in Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs history. The track has been in the Top 10 for nearly 76 weeks.
The song, which was released as part of the singer’s debut album, All I Want You, also recently re-peaked on the charts, partly due to the track going viral on TikTok earlier this year, and currently sits at No.15 on the Billboard Hot 100.

This is an impressive return for Miguel after a long absence. In April, the singer released his first solo single in nearly two years, “Give It To Me.”
The Scoop DeVille-produced record hears the San Pedro native deliver sensual serenading lyrics accompanied by a pounding beat.
“You’ve been so tied up in your mind these days, I know/ A sweet distraction might be what you need to glow,” he sings. “Your body on inferno, inferno, your mind on my, my, my/ But you deserve to let go, to let go, to let yourself unwind.”
He continues on the hook: “Yeah, I like what you got, ’cause I like what you got (Yeah)/ I like what you got (Yeah), would you give it to me? (Yeah)/ Yeah, I like what you got, yeah, I like what you got/ Yeah, I like what you got, would you give it to me?
Ahead of the song’s release, the singer teased the single via an Instagram post, with a video of him strumming away on his guitar adorned all in red.
Aside from his appearance on Diplo’s 2022 single, “Don’t Forget My Love,” Miguel has been noticeably absent from the music scene.
He was presumably recovering from the fallout from his divorce from Nazanin Mandi, whom he dated for 13 years before getting married in 2018.
Miguel’s last studio album was 2017’s War & Leisure, which features assists from Travis Scott, J. Cole, Rick Ross and more.
