When his third album, Evolver, is released on October 28, John Legend will provide his traditional mix of mid-to-down-tempo music, while also offering up a few more upbeat jams. After his first single, Green Light fell into the latter category, its successor stands firmly in the former. On No Other Love, a duet with protégé Estelle, both artists showcase their deep, soulful vocals over a throwback reggae production by Black Jays in-house producer, Supa Dups. Perfect background music, No Other Love should get plenty of spins in quieter locales like coffeehouses, doctors’ waiting rooms, and elevators (hey, it’s a vast improvement over Kenny G). In honor of the release, Legend will step inside the DJBooth for an interview later this month; you know where to send your questions.
