Legend released his Sophomore album October 30th, 2018. With tracks that not only hit hard through the speakers, they hit hard with social commentary and lyrically address racial prejudice that is hurting our communities. Songs like “Please Don’t Turn it Up” and “Good Enough” show the vulnerability that men and women go through being in relationships. A couple turn up anthems, beats that go, and witty punchlines go hand in hand through what is Legend’s best collection of work. “Technical Difficulties” gives the listener a deeper look into Legend’s heart and what he carries with himself in songs like “Ugly Truth” as he tells his father while in hospice and on his death bed, “It’s ok to let go I’m a man now”. Again, the album takes you inside self reflection, shines light on the bullshit that is plaguing our community, and can still get the crowd moving.
