Listen: John Legend & Kimbra Make EDM/R&B Perfection With “Made To Love”
Featuring additional scatting and cooing from Kimbra, the New Zealand-born songstress who accompanied Gotye on his 2012 hit “Somebody That I Used To Know,” his words passionately echo “I was sent for you / We were made to love / You were to sent for me too / We were made to love.”
The first verse continues, “Oh… I’ve never seen anything / You’re much more than human being / Extraordinary machine / Oh… I never loved, I never loved, never loved someone like this / All I know is…”
Reminiscent of Kanye West‘s KiD CuDi-assisted “Welcome To Heartbreak” from his 2008 808s & Heartbreak set, “Made To Love” was produced by Da Internz, Dave Tozer, Nana Kwabena, and Ye, who is co-executive producing the LP and is very involved in its process.

Further collaborations for Love in the Future include Hit-Boy, Q-Tip, 88 Keys, and No ID.
Though the official tracklisting has not yet been revealed (and I’m still hoping it includes “Dream“), the album is due July 25, 2013.
