Caught Up

Album: Love in the Future (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • John Legend closes the standard edition of his Love In The Future album with this Hit Boy and Kanye West produced track. It finds the R&B singer crooning about being tired of the daily pressures of his job and just wanting to get "caught up" in his woman's love. Legend explained during his NYC iHeart Radio Live show on October 7, 2013: "This is one of the first songs we (Kanye West and me) wrote for the album. I think of my father. He worked so hard. He worked at an auto factory. Rarely he'd have a night out with my mom, but when he did he'd take her out to Red Lobster. We're a classy family."
