An interesting mix of Benassi's usual dance and uptempo production with John Legend's vocals. JL does his thing and while this may take some getting used to, it's somethin' new and different. Definitely more of a classy party record. Give this one a spin above!
This was already one of the more solid tracks from Cruel Summer to me, and I was always curious why 2 Chainz was even on the song with such a short verse. This was a good come back and 2 Chainz did his thing by himself.
I bet this is a real surprise, I have a Big Boi track in my Top 5(internet sarcasim). Once again Big Boi delivers, to bad this one didn't make the final cut, but I will be adding it to my iPod none the less.
Having Kendrick Lamar on your album has become as important to rappers as a Stove to a chef. Even though only on the hook I think most people will attract to the song because they'll see featuring Kendrick Lamar. Dope song regardless, and Scarface is still a beast even after not releasing much in the past.

Look out for the new movie written and directed by Quentin Tarentino this Christmas: Django Unchained - the premise surrounding a slave turned bounty hunter out to rescue his wife from a Mississippi plantation. As you'd expect with Tarentino, an all-star cast follows, including Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz (he better play the evil plantation owner), Leonardio DiCaprio (he's famous), Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson !!!!!!! (his name should permanently have exclaimation marks attached at the end).
As you can also see above, the soundtrack will have a tracklist littered with some big names in urban music, featuring a mix of James Brown's "The Payback" and 2Pac's "Untouchable" and new music from Rick Ross and John Legend.
Last night, the Soul Train Awards aired on BET and performances came from the likes of John Legend, 2 Chainz, Miguel, Ne-Yo, Keyshia Cole, TGT, and Elle Varner. You can watch and/or re-live the performances above and below as G.O.O.D. Music kicks it off with Legend's "Tonight (Best I Ever Had)" and then 2 Chainz right under with "Birthday Song", "I'm Different", and "Ghetto Dreams". Then there's Miguel with "Adorn", Ne-Yo "Let Me Love You", Keyshia Cole "Trust & Believe" and "Enough Of No Love", TGT (Tank, Ginuwine, & Tyrese) with "Stay", "If You're Lonely", and "Zoom", and finally, Elle Varner with "Refill". Enjoy!
For the longest, I was Alicia Keys’ ride-or-die. I remember attending my very first concert at the Chicago Theater in 2005. It was the Diary Tour. John Legend, who was relatively unknown at the time, opened up for Miss Alicia, and she later came out and killed the stage. For me, that was Alicia at her finest. Diary, still ranks as one of my all time favorite albums and “You Don’t Know My Name,” still gets sung quite frequently in the shower.
So, I was geeked to say the least, while watching VH1 Storytellers tonight, hearing her talk about the back-story to how the track came about. Kanye West, is another artist I have and will always ride for, so to hear her talk about how she and the creative genius that is Mr. West, collaborated, bringing in John Legend for the background vocals, it became clear how the song developed into a masterpiece. My heart smiled hearing her talk about the process and it was definitely my favorite moment of her Storytellers performance. Make sure you check out VH1 for the full show.
John Legend announced news of a tour postponement today, citing a desire to finish recording what he says is the "best album of [his] career". Hey, I'm all for that. Follow your excitement is what we say here at Gowhere and Legend will surely be back around the country world soon enough, with a fire likely lit even brighter to perform for his devoted fanbase.
