Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Hold On Longer” by John Legend

johnlegendloveThis spectacular piece of song craft and mood comes from John Legend’s latest album Love In The Future. I’ve literally played this song over and over since it came out several weeks ago, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s the best Stevie Wonder song that Wonder never wrote. Yet, in two minutes and thirty-nine seconds of splendor, Legend manages to match the seemingly unmatchable level of artistry of classic Stevie Wonder.

The song lists amongst its writers John Stephens (aka John Legend) and Kanye West who also gets and executive producer credit for the album along with Legend and Dave Tozer. Like his other albums, his latest is a stone-classic in the making.
