Listen to John Legend’s ‘Under the Stars’ from The Equalizer, Season 2, Ep. 16, “Vox Populi”

American singer songwriter John Legend’s ‘Under the Stars‘ was played on this week’s episode of The Equalizer last night — The Equalizer, Season 2, Episode 16, “Vox Populi“.

The song was heard at the beginning of the episode as Morgan and Tim are discussing baby names.

John Legend’s ‘Under the Stars‘ was a stand-alone single that was created by the singer in conjunction with the Belgian beer company Stella Artois back in 2015.

It was released as part of the company’s “Give Beautifully” Christmas holiday campaign.

And, if you are not sure what some of those sounds on the song’s track actually are, you may be surprised to learn they are the sounds of stars.

Yes, actual up-in-the-sky stars and not those fake people in Hollywood so many seem to kowtow to.

According to Legend, the song was written about “spreading love and togetherness” during the holiday season.

And, of course, it is a mellow, feel good song that suited that baby name scene perfectly.

Listen to John Legend’s ‘Under the Stars‘ as heard on last night’s The Equalizer in the video, and on the Spotify player.

The Equalizer, starring Queen Latifah, Tory Kittles, Adam Goldberg and Liza Lapira, is currently airing on CBS.
