Fresh off thrilling NBC audiences with his portrayal of Jesus Christ in the live TV musical Jesus Christ Superstar, the Grammy-winning R&B crooner is in rare from as he tries to get us on the dancefloor with his latest cut “A Good Night” featuring BloodPop®, the talented producer formerly known as Blood Diamonds.
The track comes a year-and-a-half after he blessed us with his fifth studio album Darkness & Light, and sees John shedding light on a brand new sonic direction. “But everything’s gonna be alright/ I think I just met my wife (yeah, I said it)/ I know it’s gonna be a good night/ I think I just met my wife (alright),” John declares across the shimmering, disco groove.
Sure, the sunny disco jam isn’t exactly a life-changing sonic revolution: If anything, it’s a refreshing and welcome new direction for John Legend. I’m here for it!
