John Legend – “Made To Love”

John Legend releases the new single “Made To Love” off his forthcoming album Love In The Future, now slated to drop on September 3rd of this year.

The first 10 seconds of bare-bones percussion had me wondering if this was John Legend or some futuristic dance track, but his smooth vocals came just in time to remind me of the Legend I loved from his debut Get Lifted. With longtime collaborator Kanye West at the helm as executive producer, this beat exudes the stripped down, new age sound we’ve come to expect from ‘Ye, but meets the equally distinct John Legend at a comfortable crossroads that leaves me looking forward to the rest of the album.

Once the guitar came in and the clap-driven chorus (with mysterious lady vocals in the back) pushed me into the heart of the song, any confusion left over from the first bars had been alleviated and I found myself head-bobbing along to this epic love song. Apparently dedicated to his fiancée, Love In The Future stands as a serenade to his beloved–but with production from the likes of Q-Tip, Hit-Boy, and No I.D.  No wonder she said yes.
