John Legend led the “soul train” at BET’s Saving Our Selves: A BET COVID-19 Relief Effort special on Wednesday (April 22) night.
Dressed in a suave suit, yellow-tinted sunglasses and, yes, a full afro, the EGOT member delivered his brand-new tropical tune “Bigger Love,” as a group of dancers (virtually) grooved to the happy melody.

“We got a one-way ticket love/ We ain’t going no place but up/ Nothing can stop this/ No one can top us/ We got a bigger love,” he sings in the tune, providing the uplifting message of love that we all need right now.
