John Legend, JID connect on ‘DOPE’ his new single

2022 has been a year of unexpected collaborations as a new generation of artists boost themselves into the mainstream.

One emerging rap giant who has shown immense promise is Dreamville’s star spitter JID, who hopped on a “DOPE” new track with GRAMMY award-winning R&B vocalist John Legend.

The duo brings their funkiest energy to Legend’s latest cut, as a bouncy bass guitar and smooth keys harmonize on the danceable instrumental. Complementing the jazzy beat, John Legend unsurprisingly delivers his silky vocals before JID does lyrical backflips describing an addictive love.

“She roll up, it’s automatic, my mood is on ecstatic

She lightning, straight to the vein (Yeah)

She beautiful, she magic, she chemical reactive

I’m burnin’, all in her flame”

John Legend — “DOPE”

Legend took to Instagram to reveal that “DOPE” is co-written by Charlie Puth, specifically with the intention of making it go viral on Tik Tok. Posting a humorous video clip alongside a snippet of the track, the ear-catching song is sure to make waves, especially with such an unorthodox collaboration.

Since the beginning of 2022, John Legend has been putting out nothing but heat, releasing two singles — “Free” and “Tomorrow” featuring Nas and Florian Picasso. JID, on the other hand, has been teasing his upcoming album The Forever Story, alluding to its imminent release during his Coachella set last month.

It seems like we will be getting an album from the well-respected singer soon as his single run builds anticipation for whatever he is working on.
