Sebastian Yatra has surprised us with the Open Verse Challenge, the challenge that became popular on TikTok throughout 2021. John Legend has joined this viral challenge by choosing his song Nervous published on the album Legend in 2022 and in this case “passed the microphone” to the Colombian.

The challenge basically allows musicians or people who think they have a good beat to “pass the mic,” so to speak, to other creators on TikTok. These other creators then use the Stitch or Duet feature to respond to the OG-uploaded video and leave their own verse in a song.

Sebastian Yatra has published the challenge on his Instagram accompanied by a nice message: “I wrote this letter thinking of those loves who, even though they spend years together, are still as in love as the first day… Hope you like it @johnlegend !!”

“Adrenaline whenever you are with me, the same as the day we met, that cinema closed and you lost your dress, since that date you control my heartbeat. How is it that each kiss is similar to the first and my hands sweat if you tell me I love you like a teenager who fell in front of the mirror that’s how I see myself… Cuz I still get nervous…”

After his sweet message, accompanied by his fine-tuned voice, he sang the chorus as a duet with the American, to which he added “Don’t judge my voice in the chorus… it’s a harmony and it should sound a loooong in the back… John sings very tall and VERY awesome.”

Some of his followers said “You are incredibly humble and vulnerable and that allows you to show your beautiful personality and enjoy yourself without pretensions!”, “Don’t worry… you are the best at singing, and especially at singing lasting or eternal love like of our respective parents. I hope in a collaboration with John and a great success”, “@johnlegend we need that collaboration with our @sebastianyatra Sebas you are art… you are light and a lot of creativity. Let’s go John for this ft” among others.

‘Legend’ is the eighth studio album by the American, this work has been produced together with Ryan Tedder, the lead singer of OneRepublic, through Republic Records. The album evokes the feeling of a Sunday morning, focused on healing, intimacy, soul and commitment.

For this work, divided into two parts, there is talk of a “vibrant double album is impregnated with a spirit of sensuality and uncompromising joy, forged in the vulnerability of pain, praise and healing”, according to the artist’s environment.
