John Legend is asking you to love him
Music Reviews / /
The singer of the heart melting ballad 'All of me' is back. Check out our review of his latest single 'Love me now'.
Three years have passed since John Legend made us cry with his crooning, heartwarming, tear jerking ballad 'All of me'. The single was taken off the successful album 'Love in the future', which also spawned 'You & I'. Since then John got married, became a father to a beautiful girl, but kept us 'on a leash' with his collaborations with Meghan Trainor and recently with Tiesto.
Now the time has come for some new music. Announcing his fifth album, titled 'Darkness & Light', John premiered the lead single 'Love me now'. If you think that it is one more soulful ballad - you are wrong. It is an upbeat R&B song that will make you want to get up and dance.
Of course, the song is packed with some amazing lyrics. A modern ode to love, we might say. John is singing about living in the presence, loving with all your heart and simply enjoy the moment.
Something inside us
Knows there's nothing guaranteed, yeah
Girl, I don't need you
To tell me that you'll never leave, no
When we've done all that we could
To turn darkness into light, turn evil to good
Even when we try so hard
For that perfect kind of love, it could all fall apart
And who's gonna kiss you when I'm gone?
Oh I'm gonna love you now, like it's all I have
And I know it'll kill me when it's over
I don't wanna think about it, I want you to love me now..."
The song comes with incredibly sweet lyric video. Showing that love is what the world misses the most, we see love in its purest form; partners, sibblings, parents and kids...
The song is a bit different from what we would have expected from John, but it is well chosen first single. It is still powerful, it is packed with emotions and most importantly it sends a nice message out to the world “Oh I'm gonna love you now, like it's all I have”.
Check it out and let us know what you think.
