With his first single “Love Me Now” moving up the charts after the release of his uplifting video on Friday, John Legend is giving us another track off his “Darkness And Light” album, which comes out Dec. 2.
On “Penthouse Floor”, Legend sings over a funky groove, with another inspiring message: “They can’t keep us out anymore, let’s go to the penthouse floor.” And guess who co-wrote the track? The one and only Sia! If that wasn’t enough, joining Legend on “Penthouse Floor” is Chance The Rapper, who is having a stellar 2016 with his own “Coloring Book” album. For his rap feature, Chance even tells a knock-knock joke!
“Penthouse Floor” is one of three tracks that features some big names. “Overload” features Miguel, while the title track “Darkness And Light” includes Brittany Howard from Alabama Shakes. Legendadmitted that the song was actually inspired by Alabama Shakes’ “Sound & Color”.
Until we get to hear those collaborations and the rest of the album, we will keep hitting repeat on “Penthouse Floor”.
