JOHN LEGEND Previews New JHENÉ AIKO Collab From Upcoming Album
Last March, Jhené Aiko and John Legend put us under a spell with their relaxing jazz collaboration "Lightning and Thunder," off the neo soul artist's recent album Chilombo. A few months later and the pair is already following it up with a new track called "U Move, I Move."
The award-winning singer-songwriter shared a 35-second snippet of the new song on his social media accounts. Give it a listen below:
"U Move, I Move" is set to appear on John's forthcoming album Bigger Love due out Friday, June 19. The record boasts of 16 new tracks, with guest features from Gary Clark Jr., Koffee, Rapsody, and Camper.
In a series of tweets, John said that the project has been "a labor of love" for him, with songs that were inspired by "the loves of my life: my wife, my family and the rich tradition of black music that has made me the artist I am."
He added, "I’m under no illusion that music can save the world or solve the world’s problems, but I’ve always turned to music to help me through tough times and I know many of you have done the same. That’s why I couldn’t wait to release this album to the world."
"I hope this new album can get you lifted again, fill your hearts with love and inspiration, give you something to dance to, something to hold hands to, something to make love to."
I’m so excited to introduce my new album #BiggerLove to the world. Here’s the album cover painted by brilliant artist Charly Palmer. Check out the track list, including my amazing featured guests. pic.twitter.com/nWu6Y2JhRH— John Legend (@johnlegend) June 12, 2020
