John Legend

John Legend dropped a music video for his new social justice ballad, “Love Me Now” from his fifth studio album Darkness and Light (Columbia Records/Sony Music).

Does anyone notice the current SJW trend in R&B music? Today’s artists are so consumed by being political correct that it’s taking away from their music.

That’s a shame. Both Legend and Alicia Keys are among our most talented artists. They can do better.

    ^^^^^
    Today’s artists huh?

    So Nina Simone ain’t lose her career for wanting to just do woke music?

    Marvin ain’t get his hand slapped and mic turned off for a short time for doing What’s Going On album? A whole album of woke music that Motown scary asses ain’t want to do.

  • Pam

    Love the message. But miss the sound he had on the “Get Lifted” album. Proud of his growth though..

  • T3

    I can listen to GL ANYtime!” That’s my ish!!!!

  • MissHarlem

    Can’t we technically take it further to Negro spirituals. Haven’t music in general always spoke on what’s going on. Hell reggae music comes to mind. I mean cmon son

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Right!

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Adorable baby.

  • Scromes1212

    Cool video. But they both looking crazy right now lol it was about 60 people that woke up Wednesday morning without a job lol it’s not funny but it’s the truth. Politics is a unforgiving job if you on the losing end.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    This! And it’s not “taking away.”..from anything

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Berry almost missed out on a classic. Thank goodness he fought for it.

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    Pregnancy pact or nah?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    This too. Marvin was like fukk DAT. We dying out in these streets fighting. Either it gets released or I’m out!

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Girl, I been chanting down Babylon all week

  • Jones

    His wife is not the best looking….but the baby is beautiful.

  • LeeSeeCee

    That baby is so stinking cute!!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    The Kardashian sisters selfish beeoytches. I ain’t check for the Jenner sisters. But not any of em said shat to Rob about the new baby. Rob so damn happy too. Kourtney did find time to wish Man Hips Corey a HBD tho.??

  • Buttercup

    WHALE, I don’t have any viable candidates for baby favah #2, so I’m going to have to sit this round out.

  • Salliemae’s Boosh

    Klohe said something. Nada from Kim.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Shole did.

  • Salliemae’s Boosh

    He sounds nasally.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    They’ve always treated him like the red headed stepchild, and he seems to be the most normal/ sane?

  • MissHarlem

    The amount of songs with the term Babylon alone is enough

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Too busy chile. Smdh. I figured Khloe would say something first. Must have missed it. She love the mess outta Rob.

  • MissHarlem

    Nope

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    His baby will be more than an accessory to him so she’s blessed eff them.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I haven’t cared for John’s music in a long time. But I do applaud his moves as an Executive Producer. I can’t wait to see the series on Black wall Street

  • Buttercup

    I can’t say that I’m surprised. It’s beyond messed up that they couldn’t acknowledge one of the happiest days of their brother’s life since they say things about everything else.

  • Buttercup

    I’m looking forward to that as well as the return of Underground. I have immense appreciation for him telling a stories that have been forgotten.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    And this is not new music either, we’ve been blessed to have been taught.
    Which is all the more reason it’s important for us to keep teaching the babes & those that don’t know.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    When I say I can feel his excitement and joy? For them to be indifferent to it publicly. And nope….they post everything else…before someone says well they might have called etc.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    you know them two mama having heifers are self consumed.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I’m binging on Underground this weekend. You Roses speak so highly of that show so I definitely have to give it a shot.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    All of it. If John and Alicia not for you, then ok. But they not new. They been woke too. Sandra stay saying some mess

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    I guess the first pact needs to be the get a suitor pact. I’ll do that one with you.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    yes hunny and the second season of Underground. Greenlight is my shyt but he still sounds like the Count on Sesame Street :coffee:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AoxCkySv34

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Oh! I thought it was a limited series only.
    Thanks!

  • Buttercup

    I can get with that. I need a good 3 months to fully detox from Cockblocker though.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    girl she hating, you knowher womb is confused with all sorts of various sperm fighting to go no wherre.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Oh you must see it!!!!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    The last song I liked of his. When does Underground come back?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    me too Butter. Jurnee is pregnant so it wont be back til next year

  • Darkandlovely617?

    I see there’s still not a simultaneous upvote / downvote option ?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Who Khloe? Nah she love her brudder. You bring Rob up you can see it in her eyes. Be like ?

  • Buttercup

    I think you’d enjoy it. A lot of folks thought it was just another story about slavery. It tells the story from a different perspective. The plot and acting are great.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Why @Ty??? Why yo?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    next year…the lead character is preggo I think

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Fukk them plastic hoes. Hopefully their fingers melted together and they can’t function any type of keyboard. Attention ass hoes. They don’t even understand that shyt would raise their ratings and/or their popularity with some folks. Them actually coming together and settling their differences with their brother and welcoming their damn niece. Dumb ass stank ass hoes.

  • Felicia Kelley

    Blah

    Couldn’t get past the first 30 seconds

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    It was already for then before shot pregnant and she ain’t eem had that baby yet.

  • Buttercup

    Yeah. It premiered this past spring, so I wasn’t expecting it until spring 2017. I hope they have more episodes in season 2.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    How I felt. I go to Kourtney page, she up there with Kris gay ass bf tambout HBD. Bish it’s lil Dream birthday too damn it!

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    Sounds good.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Kim is extremely selfish.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    She’s just mad Scott treated her ass like a bottom shelf liquor bottle.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I think they moved the date cause it was supposed to come back after the winter break. Either way its going to be next year lol

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    lmao

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    I can’t wait.

  • MookieFly

    John Legend used to be more interesting but that fell off after he got with Chrissy. Now he is just kinda there.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Will do.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    She may love her brother but she don’t love Blac, she did all the work.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Ok so I just watch this week’s episode of Queen Sugar. The background on the Landry’s and Bordelon’s is chilling. I think those damn Landry/Boudreaux murdered those migrant workers.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Then I just read Khloe was up at hospital. I knew she would come thru. The other two straight wrong.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    I had such a crush on him, and met him and got to hug his good smelling self in New Orleans, he’s a tiny guy. He was no longer my crush. Be he is really intellgent guy, so he still gets high scores from me.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I’m surprised they not trying to latch on to the baby for attention.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I can see Kole going up there since he’s Rob’s only brother. Nothing like brotherly love.

  • iWasteTime

    I thought that too, before we learned what happened.
    As soon as Charly (who I’m still on the fence about) showed us the map I knew what it was.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    yes, I finally finished last night.

    I got sexual chemistry from them two Landry boy and Charlie.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Exactly! The meth addict killing those men story never sat well with me.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Bren is looking.

    I’ve been yearning to have another one. I’m with someone now I’ve been with for sometime and I regret getting a tubal. I keep hoping I’m that 1in a 1000 who still goes on to have a healthy baby even after having that done. And what pisses me off is that for the longest I’ve been having dreams where I see positive home pregnancy tests, walking with my pregnant belly, and actually holding our baby girl, yet every month I get my got damn menstrual. I’m trying to tell myself don’t think about it then maybe a miracle might happen.

    Land is one of the most valuable things you can own. People always holla “HOME ownership”. No baby, the LAND is where it’s at. Yall see why our ancestors never got their 40 acres.

    And I my memory kinda escapes me at the moment, but get a patent for the land and they can’t fugg with you. It might not be called a patent, I can’t think of the word right now, but yeah, get THAT and it can’t be taken from you. Allegedly.

  • NegroHummus

    i mean you would think the podium transformed into megatron and walked off on its own the way he was looking ??

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    I wonder if Charlys momma is a Landry.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    No I think that would have been revealed but I did think that for s second. Her mama showing up soon.

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    Land is a big deal. Mineral rights of the land is also a big deal. Very good investments. Home ownership is hit or miss. A house shouldn’t be setup as a primary investment. Home ownership is like college, it’s not for everybody.

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    Nothing about her mom has been revealed other than she was daddys other woman has it? I might’ve missed something.

  • iWasteTime
