Black Legend was a collaboration between Italian DJs and producers Enrico Ferrari and Ciro Sasso; plus British vocalist Elroy “Spoonface” Powell.
Black Legend’s “You See the Trouble with Me” reached number-one on the UK Singles Chart in June 2000. The chart-topping version featured a karaoke re-recording of the original Barry White vocal by Powell. A follow-up single entitled “Somebody”, billed as Shortie vs. Black Legend, failed to achieve chart success.
Out of respect for the Black Lives Matter movement, in 2020 Ciro decided to change his moniker to Love Legend. The name “Black Legend” was of course a tribute to Barry White. Ciro says: the name testifies to my profound admiration and respect for black artists and black music but times change and the way things are perceived changes. The last thing I would want in the world is to offend, so I put the one thing that counts into my revised artist name: LOVE.”
