"Heaven" is a song by John Legend from the album, Once Again (2006). It was written and produced by himself and musician Kanye West and released as the album's second single in fall 2006. The remix of the song, released to the iTunes Store in February 2007, features Pusha T. A special EP also features the a cappella version of the remix, the album version and the instrumental of "Heaven".

A moderate commercial success, "Heaven" reached number 26 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in the United States, but failed to enter the Billboard Hot 100. Released to critical success however, it won Legend his second consecutive Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance at the 49th award ceremony. The song produced two music videos, the first one featuring women posed as various Renaissance era paintings. The second one features more John Legend himself and less posture women. Both videos were shot at Highclere Castle in the UK and was directed by Hype Williams.
