Quentin Tarantino is pulling out all the stops for his new film Django Unchained. In addition to casting Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio in the Civil War-era western, the famed director calls on some of music’s leading men for the soundtrack.
Following Rick Ross’ Foxx-produced cut “100 Black Coffins,” John Legend lends his Grammy-winning voice to “Who Did That to You?” Co-written and produced by Paul Epworth (Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”), the chilling track contains a darker and grittier sound from the soul man.
“I’m excited to be a part of this film and the soundtrack,” said Legend. “When I first learned that Quentin was making Django Unchained—a film set in the South two years before the Civil War—I felt a strong connection to the story. I knew that I wanted to compose a song for this film; a song that would not only give voice to Django, a man willing to stand up and fight for his lover’s honor, but also feel like a natural fit in a Tarantino film.”
The G.O.O.D. Music crooner’s new album Love in the Future is currently being mixed and is due next spring with a tour to follow.
