Shortly after the release of his fifth studio album, Darkness and Light, John Legend feeds R&B fans with “Overload,” a standout track from the LP, featuring fellow crooner Miguel.
On the acoustic guitar gem, The two create a space of social awareness, both on and offline, as they deliver beautifully crafted, inspirational, and soulful lyrics about not neglecting “love.”
“Don’t we always make a show of love?” Legend asks. “Life on overload, must we make a spectacle of love?”
About the project, Legend stated: “While ‘Darkness and Light’ is the name of one of the songs, those words kept coming back to me. There’s a lot of darkness in the world, pain and conflict. But the album also represents the desire to find light, optimism, love and joy in the midst of all that.”
