This is the ring-in-2017 performance announcement Dubai’s R&B fans have been waiting for…

Still not booked anything for December 31? Well, if you’re an R&B fan, consider your New Year’s Eve sorted, as Grammy winning artist Miguel is coming to Dubai.

The LA-born singer and producer will bring his sultry sounds to pan-Asian Sheikh Zayed Road restaurant Novikov Dubai, which is certainly an intimate venue for the performance.

It will be the first time Miguel has performed in the city. He’s best known for hit single Adorn, which won best R&B Song at the 2013 Grammy Awards. His most recent album, Wildheart, has been lighting up the charts too.

How Many Drinks, a hit collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, was also nominated for a Grammy, and seems like an apt choice for the NYE celebrations. If Lamar made a surprise appearance we’d probably faint on the spot…

Most recently, you might have recognised his distinctive voice in the latest movie trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey: Fifty Shades Darker, with his own riff on Beyonce’s Crazy in Love.

Novikov will be offering a dinner and party package (Dhs1,500), which includes a set menu, signature cocktail upon arrival and a champagne toast and midnight. Be sure to book at least 48 hours in advance. Walk-ins on the night will be charged Dhs500 for entry alone, and guests with the package can invite extra people to their table for after-dinner bottle service.
