John Legend jokes he has the perfect soundtrack for making ‘corona babies’

John Legend has hailed his upcoming album his “sexiest” yet and joked that it’s perfect for making some “coronababies” to.

The ‘All of Me’ crooner is busy putting the finishing touches to his first record since 2016’s ‘Darkness and Light’ and his festive LP ‘A Legendary Christmas’, and he has joked that his new collection of love songs could increase the chances of a baby boom during the coronavirus pandemic.

John – who has three-year-old daughter Luna and 22-month-old son Miles with wife Chrissy Teigen – also revealed he has a tricky task in getting the strings on the record recorded due to everyone being in self-isolation.

During a virtual chat for ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, he shared: “The new album is coming, we’re mixing it, we’re getting our strings finished.

“I’m not sure how we’ll execute our string recording, I don’t know how we’ll distance our way into an orchestra recording. We’ll figure that out, maybe we’ll have to do a few players at a time and overdub it.”

He added: “It’s actually probably my sexiest album to date.

“If you’re stuck at home and want to make some coronababies … if you spend a lot of time with your partner and you need a soundtrack to that.”

John kicked off the album with the lead single ‘Actions’. The ballad singer called on everyone to take “actions” as they “speak louder than love songs” on his first taste of the new release.

He sings: “Here I go again/ With another love song/ That I wasted.I wanna show my love is strong/ Make her feel it when I’m home/ No fakin’/ No mistakin’.

The track samples ‘The Edge’ by David McCallum, which Dr. Dre used on his 2000 hit The Next Episode’.

John has been performing on Instagram Live as part of Global Citizen Festival’s ‘Solidarity Sessions: Together, At Home’.

Announcing the new record last week as reported on The Sauce, he said: “Just so you guys know, I am putting out a new album this year. “Everybody’s home, you need stuff, you need music, you need TV, you need films.

“You need stuff to entertain you, so I’m going to put some music out. We’re going to release some music.”

According to reports, Legend knows a few things about love music.

The 41-year-old US singer’s 2013 ballad from his fourth studio album, ‘Love in the Future’ – which he dedicated to his wife Chrissy Teigen – come out on top as the most adored song Valentine’s Day this year, with 1.1 billion streams according to The Sauce. So I guess we can trust that he will definitely deliver some great music.
