John Legend - The Beginning

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Hit-Boy
Album:
Love in the Future

Who Did That to You?, John Legend‘s contribution to the Django Unchained soundtrack, was dope, but it’s a drop in the bucket in comparison to the recent drought of solo material from the G.O.O.D. Music crooner. That drought officially ended with this morning’s release of The Beginning, the first buzz record off Legend’s next studio album (the official single will be released later this month). On this bittersweet ballad, in-demand producer Hit-Boy‘s moody, harp-laced production backs the artist as he reminisces about his numerous “last times” with a certain woman. Love in the Future, Legend’s fourth solo set, has yet to be assigned a solid release date by the label brass, but fans can keep it locked to The DJBooth for further details and song releases as they emerge.
