“Actions,” the follow-up to January’s “Conversations in the Dark,” is a reminder that when it comes to love, actions are often more important than words. The song also features a familiar sample, David McCallum’s “The Edge.”
Legend initially teased the new single as part of the World Health Organization and Global Citizen’s Together At Homes series, which sees artists performing live from the comfort of their homes as a way to encourage fans to stay at home amid the coronavirus pandemic. Other artists have included Chris Martin and Charlie Puth. Common will perform on Friday.
“Actions” is the latest single from Legend’s upcoming album, set to be released later this year.
Still, there’s tons of other projects we’re excited about. Here’s what else we’re listening to while stuck in the house:
Phil Ade Featuring Trevor Jackson's "Don't Cry"
We love Phil Adé, who now goes by ADÉ, and this time he's teamed up with another one of our faves, Trevor Jackson, for "Don't Cry." The best part of this collaboration is that the feel good throwback song also comes with a music video. We're here for it.
Rafiya's "Po Na Yo"
Newcomer Rafiya is out with a new single, “Po Na Yo,” which means means “For You” in Lingala, one of Congo’s national languages. The light and vibey song totally reminds us of summer. And if you love Afrobeats, this song is for you since it also feature the hard-to-miss Congolese guitar.
Tiana Major9's "Collide"
Fans couldn't get enough of the single, featured on the soundtrack for Queen & Slim. So thankfully, the British singer provided us with a stripped down acoustic version to hold us over.
