Multi-platinum, 12-time GRAMMY Award-winner John Legend released a breathtaking version of his hit song “Nervous” with Colombian-American chart-topping singer and songwriter Sebastián Yatra. Stream the new bilingual interpretation of the song.
“Sebastian is such a gifted artist,” said Legend. “I’m so glad we could collaborate again on this special version of “Nervous!”
“I was actually a bit “Nervous” to do the song with John because singing alongside one of the best singers in the world can be pretty overwhelming,” said Sebastián. “He is an incredible vocalist and performer and puts so much emotion into everything he does. I’m so grateful to be a part of such a special song.”
The original version of “Nervous” is featured on Legend’s eighth studio album, ‘LEGEND’ available now everywhere via Republic Records. The track recently blew up on TikTok after Legend initiated an open verse challenge inviting fans to add their own verse to the song via the popular “duets” feature. To date, the video has generated over 56M views on the platform. “Nervous” has also amassed over 11M global streams since its release.
This is the second collaboration for Legend and Yatra, who previously collaborated on a bilingual version of Yatra’s No. 1 hit “Tacones Rojos,” from his latest project, ‘Dharma,’ which debuted at number 12 on the US Billboard Top Latin Albums, including number 2 on the Latin Pop Albums chart, amassing over 2.3 billion streams in its first week. Legend joined Yatra for “Tacones Rojos” at the 23rd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards®, which will aired on Univision on Thursday, November 17, 2022.
