Singer, songwriter, and producer Miguel spent a handful of years behind the scenes, helping to create hits for others before he released his own hit single, â€œAll I Want Is You,â€� in 2010. Born Miguel Jontel Pimentel in Los Angeles, CA, Miguel worked on various projects for smaller labels and underground hip-hop artists like J Dilla and Exile, sometimes using the name Jontel. In 2007 he was called up to the big leagues by the Jive label, and a year later would be contributing his songwriting skills to Usherâ€™s album Here I Stand. Work for Asher Roth (2009â€™s Asleep in the Bread Aisle) and more work for Usher (2010â€™s Raymond v. Raymond) would follow along with Miguelâ€™s 2010 mixtape, Mischief. With its title track doubling as its lead single, his All I Want Is You album landed that same year. ~ David JeffriesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
