John Legend has always poured it on hot and heavy for his love songs. Well, the master balladeer takes things to a new level with “Wonder Woman,” a track written about his ninth wedding anniversary with Chrissy Teigen. “You’re the best at my worst, more than what I deserve,” he croons. “Always right there beside me / Could have put yourself first.” Strings, piano, and horns spin in delightful patterns, sticky sweet and soft. He sure does know how to stir up all kinds of feelings. Later, he wonders exactly how Chrissy does all she does, before declaring her to be “superwoman,” he sings, “and I’m just a man.”
