oh wow when John came in he rly out sung Wendy tenfold. Surprised Wendy sounds so wispy and airy.

yeah, i don't get why wendy decided to sing the song in this way. she's capable of producing a fuller tone, but for some reason she didn't indulge in it here. is it because they wanted a clear contrast between her and john's voice? idk

it sounds good when they harmonize

Their vocal styling doesn't fit together entirely, but I love the song and the video is so pretty!

I feel like he needed a vocalist with more depth to her tone to be able to hold her own against him tbh. I could see Luna doing better.

please don't mention luna like this... I hadn't thought of her until reading your comment, and now a tsunami of frustration has come my way thinking about how absolutely correct you are, and how amazing this would have been for her career

Agreed, I'd love to see Luna used more often

Agree with the other comments that John’s voice blew Wendy’s out of the water. Pretty good song, still impressed they were able to get John Legend to do an SM Station song but it is SM after all.

Wendy has a good voice but this was so unbalanced, their tones were so different and John has so much /depth/ and his voice was so rich idk it was weird

It’s cute. This also means we’ve started the holiday songs trend and I can’t wait to turn every one of them off.
I hear what everyone else is hearing and honestly it just seems like they didn’t try to have one or the other alter their singing to fit the other harmonically (John belting while Wendy was cooing).

I'm happy this is an actual collab, they were clearly in the studio together. I also think Wendy sounds good and that they sound good together, this is exactly the type of rnballad we expect from a project with John Legend's name attached.

i thought i was the only one that thought the song clearly showcased john legend's vocal prowess and wendy sounded like someone singing a cover of the song. i go back n forth of wanting a stronger female counterpart to the song but i pretty much hated his duet with ariana grande so....

that being said i want the song to do well for wendy!

i thought they both sounded great, and great together. idk wendy's voice just sounds so beautiful in this song.
but uh. the romance scenes in the mv...? he's almost 40? she's 24...? i am uncomfortable

I don't get why they had Wendy singing the song this way when she's capable of much stronger vocals, especially in contrast to John Legen's style. This sounds like he's a way better vocalist than her and as far as I know he's actually not, so wtf.

I ended up really liking this. I don't think it sounds as imbalanced as the comments here say.

i didn't think it was bad either :/
