John Legend unveiled his latest single “Actions” and an accompanying lyric video on Friday (March 20).
On the romantic jam, the crooner playfully laments his penchant for the host of love songs that litter his discography, singing, “La da da da da, here I go again/ With another love song that I wasted/ Just another love run out of patience/ She don’t want it/ She don’t need it/ Every other word coming from my pen/ She throw back in my face/ Saying ‘Where you been?’/ I sound so poetic/ But it feels like I let her slip away.”
On the grooving chorus, Legend asserts: “Actions speak louder than love songs.”
“Actions” will be featured on The Voice judge’s forthcoming seventh studio album, which he confirmed earlier this week during his live-streamed “Together At Home” concert with wife Chrissy Teigen and kids Luna and Miles, and follows lead single “Conversations in the Dark.”
The untitled album is expected to drop some time later this year via Columbia Records.
