John Legend - Who Did That to You?Friday, December 07, 2012
Listen to "100 Black Coffins" on Rappersroom.
"Who Did That to You?" is more gritty in lyrics than what we're accustomed to from Legend, but the song showcases is smooth tone, while giving listener's a soulful and masterfully created script.
"Quentin Tarantino's movies have such a specific sound to them, where the music plays such an important role," the Grammy winner told the LA Times. "When I first learned that Quentin was making 'Django Unchained,' a film set in the South two years before the Civil War, I felt a strong connection to the story, and I knew that I wanted to write a song for it, one that would give voice to this character Django, who was willing to stand up and fight for his lover's honor."
He adds: "The scene where the song plays is such a powerful moment in the film, a moment of redemption, and we wrote a triumphant and heroic song that underscores Django's mission."
'Django Unchained' stars Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio and is a western flick shot in the Civil War era. The film hits theaters this Christmas.
