John Legend is excited to share his latest song “Dope” as he gets ready for the release of his new album. “Dope” is all about the fascination of new love and rapper J.I.D. adds his verses to the bright energy of celebrating a love quest. Legend previously shared “Dope” with some of his fans including the iHeart Awards audience and the crowd who attended the first leg of his Love In Las Vegas residency. He says,
“I’m so thrilled to be releasing new music. The past year or so has been so exciting for me creatively. I have been writing and collaborating with some of the most talented people in music, and we have some great new material to share with the world. ‘Dope’ is one of my favorites. I love the energy of the song. I loved collaborating with my gifted co-writers and producers, and J.I.D is one of my favorite emerging artists in hip-hop. I hope the song can be a part of people’s soundtrack for this summer.”
Legend’s forthcoming album will be his first with label partner EMI. He will return to his Las Vegas on August 5th to the 20th and then from October 14th to the 29th. Tickets are available for purchase now.
