Some people think R&B is soft but to them I say: yes it is and that is why I like it. John Legend is that soft shit you need in your life.
Classicist take but nowhere near as cloyingly dull as yr standard neo-soul blahs, at least most of the time. Production is slinky soulful sexiness, the weird, pop-ready modern take on sampling that Kanye introduced, thick, fat sampled basslines, low-key drums, sparkling philly-soul style production. Legend’s voice is pretty great too. I’ve uploaded “Live It Up” which is celebratory and lush, and shows how great Legend works within this old-fashioned soul template.
Buy this shit here if you think it’s hot.
