Legend told Billboard magazine that this song, where he doesn't want a one night stand to end, is his favorite cut from Evolver.
Legend told Billboard: "My songs are always about love and devotion. 'Good Morning' is about sex more explicitly than I've written about before. Sooner or later I had to go R. Kelly on my fans... without going all the way."
This track features twice on Evolver. The album opens with an instrumental version and the full cut closes the set.
John Legend revealed on a Reddit AMA that this was the first song he ever wrote for his model wife Chrissy Teigen. "Morning sex inspired it," he said.
