R&B singer Miguel has new music on the way that will see him achieve new heights — literally.
During his listening party for his newest album 'Viscera' at Sony Studios, he stunned fans with a shocking performance. While on stage, in front of everyone, Miguel was accompanied by staff who pierced metal hooks through his back to attach him to wires dangling from the ceiling - an act known as body suspension.
Crazy, but fitting for one of his new songs with the lyrics "I’m hanging onto nothing/ I’m hanging from the ceiling."
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Miguel explained the reason behind this bone-chilling stunt.
“Initially, it was a bit of, ‘What is the most extreme way to push outside of what’s expected? How far can I go in demonstrating how far I’m willing to go for art, for conversation?”
That's a lot to do for only a listening party!
