John Legend, 'Love in the Future' (6/25)
It's been five years since John Legend's last solo release, Evolver. He's kept busy with projects like the G.O.O.D. Music compilation and an album with the Roots, and the wait for anoher solo album will finally end on June 25th with the G.O.O.D./Columbia release of Love in the Future. The steady stomping but overwhelmingly soulful first single "Who Do You Think We Are" features a gruff guest verse from Rick Ross, while Love in the Future also found Legend re-teaming with longtime collaborators Kanye West and Dave Tozer, as well as producers like Hit-Boy, Q-Tip, No I.D. and Da Internz.
