John Legend finished recording his seventh studio album, Bigger Love, in February. That was a period before a global pandemic and the current black revolution in the United States.

According to the singer, the lyrics of the album “feel different now, given the circumstances.” As someone with the platform that he has, the musician feels that it is his duty as an artist to lift people up.

“This album is more focused on joy, love, hope, and on optimism,” the award-winning singer says. “I think my last album [2016’s Darkness and Light] was kind of an album about being worried about being concerned and I definitely feel both. I feel like the world needs some joy.”

Making use of the new Voice Note feature on Twitter, the artist released a snippet of a single off the upcoming album. You can listen to U Move, I Move featuring Jhene Aiko below.
