John Legend has collaborated with Juanes and Sin Banderas in the past, so don't be surprised if you find a Spanish-language track on his next studio album. The multiple Grammy Award-winning artist debuted his newest video, "A Good Night" in Hollywood on Thursday night ahead of speaking to members of the media about what else we can expect from him this year.
Legend, who recently played the role of Jesus in NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar" to high praise, is not only open to singing in Spanish again, but also collaborating with another Latino artist. Although he doesn't have anyone specific in mind as of yet, he's open to suggestion from his countless Latino fans all over the world.
"I've sung in Spanish before with Juanes," Legend told a cheering crowd of journalists last night. "We did a Spanglish version of my song 'If You're Out There' and there are a few other songs where I've sung at least partly in Spanish. I did one with Noel Schajris from Sin Banderas and hopefully, I'll do more in the future."
In the meantime, fans can enjoy the video for "A Good Night" which was just released in collaboration with Google. The tune featuring BloodPop has an addictive beat designed to get anyone and everyone on the dance floor. The video, which was shot in its entirety using multiple Google Pixel phones, shows how a couple finds their future spouses during a random meeting at a nightclub during a night of fun.
Although many people have speculated that this song was inspired by his wife Chrissy Teigen, he admitted she was only part of the equation.
"Yes, to some extent but also I've had friends tell me the day they met their wife they knew they were going to marry her," Legend said when questioned if the song was about Teigen. "So I thought about their stories too. Not everyone has the same story, sometimes you go into love [slowly] and it's not automatic. But some people, at that moment, are like, 'Oh, I'm going to marry her.' And it's actually happened to some of my friends before. I thought about that when I was writing it too."
