10-time Grammy winner John Legend lifted the lid on his fifth studio album, ‘Darkness and Light,’ this weekend – much to delight of his dedicated fans.

Launched by tune ‘Love Me Now’ (which, to date, has peaked at #41 on the Hot 100), the opus is winning thumbs up from critics and fans alike for its political skew while still maintaining sonic elements that drew fans to his previous releases (see:  jazz, soul, R&B, gospel-tinged numbers).  Yet, while the critics are making a lot of noise in praise of the project, the buzz for it – admittedly – has been quite hushed (to put it nicely).

John Legend has unleashed a new jam in the form of ‘Penthouse Floor.’

The funky cut features Chance The Rapper and appears on the 10-time Grammy winner’s 5th studio album ‘Darkness And Light’ (due Dec. 2nd).
