Despite the pandemic, JOHN LEGEND has released a brand new album…. the 16 track ‘Bigger Love’. Several other top names, notably Gregory Porter, have opted to delay new releases because of the current situation.
‘Bigger Love’ is a classic John Legend artefact… a mix of old school soul flavours and contemporary R&B sounds. Tracks winning radio/media attention right now are the lovely ‘I Do’ and ‘One Life’. The opening track ‘Ooh Laa’ is a nostalgic throwback to the doo-wop era while the ear-catching ballad is ‘Remember Us’ which features a heart-rending rap/monologue from Rapsody (Marianna Evans)… if you’ve lost a love, you’ll understand.
