By Subhro Prakash Ghosh | 2 years ago

R&B recording artist Miguel Pimentel is back with his third album “Wildheart,” which is an ode to sex and porn and his “aggressive” bedroom proclivities. In an interview with The Daily Beast, he said that he wants to establish his vulnerability in one of his lyrics from “The Valley.” It is the most sexually upfront song in his newest album “Wildheart.” Read on.

“Wildheart,” which was released on June 29, 2015, is the follow-up to Pimentel’s second album titled “Kaleidoscope Dream” released on Sept. 25, 2012. Ann Powers, a music critic said that it was the best album of the year 2012.

So far, “Wildheart” has received widespread acclaim from music critics with an average score of 84 out of 100 by Metacritic. The crucial point of Pimentel’s songs is that the collection is sex-positive instead of sex-obsessed. It also transcends the genres established narratives pointed to pleasure and partnership and is against one-sided pursuit.

Pimentel’s “Wildheart” deserves a place together with the latest albums by Kendrick Lamar and D’Angelo for his extraordinary concept of compounding impulses like love and death, cynicism and hope, raunch and exaltation, doubt and confidence, and salvation and damnation. He has also proved his outstanding caliber in synthetic and robotic sounds of R&B.

In “The Valley,” Pimentel called for sex with his lyric “like we are filming in the Valley.” He wanted to dedicate it to the San Fernando Valley. It is a hub for the porn industry, which is 20 miles away from his beloved hometown in Los Angeles.

During his phone interview with the outlet, the Grammy-winning artist shared his interest with porn.

“I grew up here, I love porn. Who doesn’t like porn? Hooray for porn!” Pimentel said.

The core of the album “Wildheart” was “What’s Normal Anyways?” Pimentel started singing the song with a long electric guitar addressing his own mixed heritage as he is born to a Mexican-American father and an African American mother. Through his song, he has made a large confession: “I never feel like I belong/I want to feel like I belong somewhere.”

The song stirs a series of questions in the mind of the audience who are mainly growing up and enthuses to seek identity. Pimentel asks through his song, as he has a crossed tradition, where the ideal place is to belong.
