John Legend has enlisted singer-songwriter Muni Long for his new single “Honey.” The delicious track was co-produced by Legend, Ryan Tedder, Steven Franks, Lindgren and Tommy Brown.
“Honey” is a sweet and smooth tune made for the bedroom. “Honey makes the world go ’round / The world go ’round / Ain’t it, lovely/ The way it flow when I go down / When I go down?” Legend sings in the first verse.
Long comes in on the second verse, singing, “It’s waitin’ for you when you get home / Oh, oh, you nеver wanna leave (Leave) / Got you addicted to me, yeah (Uh) / Baby, don’t stop ’til my legs stop / When it drip, baby, don’t waste a drop, oh-oh, oh.”
“Honey” is Legend’s second single from his upcoming eighth album that will release on Republic Records. It follows his summer anthem, “Dope,” featuring JID. He recently released a vintage house party-themed video, directed by Christian Breslauer.
