John Legend released his first new song since becoming a father, but it’s definitely not about his daughter, Luna, or about being a dad. However, this sultry new track sounds like it could be inspired by his wife, Chrissy Teigen, which shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.
Legend collaborated with DJ Tiësto on his latest release, “Summer Nights,” and it is a jam. We also wouldn’t be surprised if this song becomes a summer anthem.
The song’s lyrics include, “I see you in my head/ You ain’t like the rest/ You ain’t bringing me down, baby/ You’re right next to me/ We’re making history/ The sun’s about to go down, baby/ I wanna be wherever you are, baby/ Impossible to take it too far.”
The track also has an upbeat, catchy chorus that goes, “Summer nights/ getting high like the first time/ You and I, make it last forever.”

While the song may not be about baby Luna, Legend’s first Father’s Day was likely all about being a new dad. Teigen shared a special message on Instagram celebrating the big day.
“Happy Father’s Day to the most perfect man Luna and I could ever ask for,” Teigen wrote. “Since the day she was born, you’ve done every bottle with me, woken up with me to keep me company through every night. You don’t mind diapers, get all the best burps, and read her Goodnight Moon like poetry. It makes me so happy to see so much of you in her smile and eyes that completely glow when looking at you. She will never look at anyone — anyone — the way she looks at you.”
She went on to say, “Happy Father’s Day to your father, Ron. John is the amazing father he is because of you and Phyllis. You created and raised a man we are all so lucky to love. We love you, Johnny, endlessly, forever and ever to the Luna and back. Happy Father’s Day from Luna and I, and thank you to game 7 for providing the real gift here and getting me out of having to plan and overthink the day phew.”
Luna looks as cute as ever in that adorable Father’s Day onesie. We hope this fabulous and funny family had a great Father’s Day.
