John Legend has released the latest single from his forthcoming album, “Honey,” featuring Muni Long. Sexy and silky with elements of R&B, pop and jazz woven throughout, the track is out now through Republic Records and you can check it out below.
“Honey” was produced by Ryan Tedder, Steven Franks, Lindgren and Tommy Brown, with Legend and Long serving as co-writers on the track along with Melanie Joy Fontana, HARV, Gregory Heinn, Lindgren, Franks, Tedder and Brown. While Long and Legend previously worked together as songwriters, “Honey” is their first collaboration as recording artists.
