"I’ve been a huge fan of hers for a while now and am so grateful she was able to hop on the song and write a special new verse. I’m also thrilled that the incredible @johnlegend came on for a new version of “The Show” and can’t wait for you all to hear the cover of @tearsforfears ' “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” that I’ve been performing at all the festivals this past summer. There’s also some versions of the songs I did with @Vevo and a preview of some live performances I did at a @Spotifyevent right before the album came out (much more to come from that night to come soon).
