"Sure Thing" is a song by American recording artist Miguel. Written by himself and produced by Happy Perez, the song is included on his debut album, All I Want Is You (2010). It was first leaked onto YouTube in 2008.[1] It was sent to radio as the album's second single in January 2011. The R&B song features neo soul influences, and had been noted for its similarities to the work of singer, Jon B.. It has thus far achieved moderate success in the United States but has since atopped on the US R&B charts. "Sure Thing" marks Miguel's first number-one hit on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and was his most successful single to date, until "Adorn's" release in 2012, spending over fifty weeks on the charts and still charting.

As of July 2013, the song has sold 1,106,000 copies in the US.[2]
