John Legend Drops First Single In 3 Years And It’s The Perfect Weekend Jam

John Legend and his soulful voice are back, baby!

The 37-year-old singer/songwriter justreleased Love Me Now, the first single off his upcoming album Darkness and Light, and its fucking lit.

Legend debuted the hit during a Facebook Live that occurred on Thursday night. In case youve lost track over the years, Darkness and Light will be JLs fifth studio album.

Speaking to his millions of fans via Facebook, Legend said,

Im so excited for you to hear everything weve done. The music is really, really good. Its going to be really exciting. I think its my best work yet.

Really, really good? John, bro, this song is the new hotness! I want to dance to it at my wedding. I want to be buried to it. I want to shout the lyrics from the rooftops!

All you have to do is listen to Legends Love Me Now once, and Im sure youll agree this might just be the greatest song ever released.

According to reports, Legend did concede the fact he thinks Darkness andLight is his best work yet. The album will reportedly feature collaborations with Chance TheRapper, Miguel, Brittany Howard fromthe Alabama Shakes and more.

Back to the song, though, because as you can see in the video above, Love Me Now is just the kind of feel-good jam weve been waiting for. Its uplifting and incredibly necessary in these increasingly troubling times.

At the moment, the world feels a bit like its on the brink, and Legends Love Me Now mightve just pulled us back from the ledge, at least for a little while.

The rest of Darkness and Light will reportedly drop before the end of 2016, but in the meantime, lets just spend this weekend jamming out to Love Me Now.

Ill love you now and forever, John Legend.
