As John Legend makes headlines for cursing no. 45 TF out, the clips from singer’s appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden are also going viral. The talk show host challenged Legend to a riff-off (summer bops vs. summer ballads) and what ensued was pure hilarity.
“Whenever I turn the radio on now all I’m getting are like slow, boring ballads,”Corden told the audience prior to the segment. “Are you experiencing this? I want to roll down the windows, I want to jam out. No one wants to hear some guy on a guitar crying about his girlfriend in the middle of the summer. It just feels wrong. Seriously, who would want to listen to a ballad when you could listen to a great summer bop? They’re so boring.”
“I heard you’ve been telling people bops are better than ballads,” Legend responded as he hit the stage. “I feel attacked. It feels, like, kind of personal. For me, summer’s a time to slow things down … how about we settle this, right here, right now?”
