Songwriter and artist Mike Waters is a co-writer on 'U Move, I Move' by John Legend featuring Jhené Aiko from Legend's Bigger Love, which won the Grammy for Best R&B Album.
Waters spoke to Musicfeeds last year about the song's origins.
"I co-wrote this song in LA with two legends named Trey Campbell and Jonas Karlsson. We all loved the idea of writing a song about commitment and vulnerability from a guy’s perspective, and this is what we came up with. I really wanted to pitch it to some male artists initially (or at least a duet) but nobody could figure out which male artists might be interested in being that openly vulnerable. Instead it got pitched to some female artists, but thankfully never got picked up, because John Legend heard it and he had some ideas. He and Jhené Aiko were 100% the perfect fit for this song, and with their contributions I feel like it’s become something really special."
