John Legend Made Another Love Song For You To Cry To

‘Love Me Now’ is the first single from his next album

John Legend can’t promise forever, but he can promise a whole lot of love in the moment.

The “All of Me” singer released a new single called “Love Me Now” that’s all about living in the present. Instead of banking on eternity, he admits that even the most idyllic romances could be over in a minute, so it’s best to enjoy them while they’re here.

“Even when we try so hard / For that perfect kind of love / It could all fall apart,” he admits. “So love me now.”

Accompanying the new song is a lyric video starring couples and families professing their love to each other, just in case the song itself wasn’t enough to get you misty-eyed.

“Love Me Now” is Legend’s first new single since his Oscar-winning Common collaboration, “Glory.” It’s also the first song off his upcoming album Darkness & Light, which Legend says will feature contributions from Miguel and Chance the Rapper.
