"Adorn" is a song by American singer Miguel, written and recorded as the first single from his second studio album Kaleidoscope Dream (2012). It was entirely written and produced by Miguel, who was inspired by his girlfriend and a series of dreams he had prior to writing the song.
"Adorn" features on-beatsub-bass sounds, falsetto howls, irregular vocal echoes, obscured synths, and sparse keyboard arrangements. The lyrics feature brazen declarations of affection, including promises of adoration to a female subject. Writers liken "Adorn" to Marvin Gaye's 1982 ballad "Sexual Healing". Miguel was inspired to write the song by a series of dreams he had prior to writing it. His girlfriend, model and artist Nazanin Mandi, was also an inspiration behind the song. Miguel later told People magazine: "I had been on a long trip and was anxious to see her. That's where the song began, with that emotion while I was on the plane. I don't remember how I got from 'These lips can't wait to taste your skin' to the end of the song, but when I listened to it, I thought, 'This is special.'"
"Adorn" originally appeared on the Miguel mixtape Art Dealer Chic, Vol. 1, released on February 27, 2012. It was later included on a promotional extended play titled Kaleidoscope Dream: The Water Preview on July 31, one of two extended plays released by Miguel to promote Kaleidoscope Dream. On August 7, "Adorn" was solicited to rhythmic contemporary radio stations in the United States, and released to iTunes. A remix of the song, featuring American rapper Wiz Khalifa, was released on September 18. "Adorn" charted at number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, becoming Miguel's most successful single to date. It was also his third number-one hit on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart and still holds the record for the longest run atop the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, being the only song in the chart's history to spend 20 or more weeks at number-one. By July 2013, the song had reached 1,014,000 copies sold in the US. By June 2, 2015, it had sold two million copies according to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), who certified it double platinum.
