Veteran R&B crooner John Legend recently dropped his new single, "Who Do We Think We Are" featuring Rick Ross, which is set to appear on his upcoming fourth album, Love in the Future. The follow-up to 2008′s Evolver was produced by Legend, Kanye West, and Dave Tozer, and will arrive on June 25 via Columbia/G.O.O.D. Music.
During a recent promo visit to London, the Tonight (Best You've Ever Had)" hitmaker sat down with ThatGrapeJuice for a candid interview about the forthcoming effort. The soulful singer spoke about his approach with Love in the Future, and whom he has worked with on it.
“I’m so excited to release this project. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed making this album with a team of incredibly gifted producers and co-writers,” said Legend. “Every day we went to the studio with the goal to create something beautiful, to make the best album of my career. After all the writing and arranging and re-mixing and editing, it’s finally time for the world to hear it.”
The video for “Who Do We Think We Are” was filmed in New York early March and is set to premiere in mid-April.
In addition, John discussed the younger crop of male R&B/Soul artists and if he feels competition from them. He admitted he still needs to collaborate with Beyoncé and even shared his thoughts on her new song “Bow Down,” plus more.
