Smokey Robinson and John Legend Duet on ‘Quiet Storm’ [LISTEN]

The legendary Smokey Robinson will be releasing a duets album titled ‘Smokey & Friends’ on Aug. 19, and for one of the tracks on the album, the song pairs the acclaimed Motown singer with John Legend for an old classic. Click on the video above to hear the two duet on Robinson’s 1976 hit, ‘Quiet Storm.’

‘Quiet Storm’ opens with Legend saying into the mic, “Bob Dylan called Smokey Robinson one of the greatest poets of our time. Smokey, it’s an honor to sing this with you.” The two singers then jump into a modern, but still soulful, rendition of the song which helped spawn a new genre of radio stations featuring late-night slow jams. This genre of radio was later nicknamed as “Quiet Storm” based on Robinson’s album of the same name.

‘Smokey & Friends’ will also feature other big names in music, such as Elton John, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Cee Lo Green, Mary J. Blige and Sheryl Crow. Each performer joins Robinson in singing some of his past favorites, including ‘You Really Got a Hold on Me’ and ‘My Girl.’
