After entertaining fans from his home amid the coronavirus quarantine, John Legend has released a new single titled “Actions.”
The poetic love song, which he co-wrote with Cautious Clay, serves as a call-to-action and features a sample of David McCallum’s “The Edge,” which Dr. Dre famously sampled on “The Next Episode.”
“Actions speak louder, speak louder than, speaker louder than love songs,” sings Legend “And melodies they carry on.”
Earlier this week, Legend hosted his “Together, At Home” concert on Instagram Live, where he previewed “Actions” and performed his hits as well as covers. A remix with YBN Cordae is rumored to follow.
During a recent live stream, John Legend said, “Just so you guys know, I am putting out a new album this year. Everybody’s home, you need stuff, you need music, you need TV, you need films. You need stuff to entertain you, so I’m going to put some music out.”
