‘Kiss From a Rose’ on ‘The People v. O.J.’

In addition to taking another look at the the O.J. Simpson trial in great detail, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story also harks back to the '90s with its spot-on soundtrack. The FX miniseries has included timely hits from Michael Bolton, the Beastie Boys, and Seal, whose career-defining 1994 hit, "Kiss From a Rose," popped up on the show. And while the singer has yet to see the moment in which his track was featured, he isn't too sure how he feels about the attention. "I saw it trending on social media. I’m not quite sure how I feel about that," he revealed to Andy Cohen and fellow guest, William H. Macy, on Watch What Happens Live this week.

After expressing his uncertainty about the association with the former football player-turned-murder suspect, via the series, William said he shouldn't be too upset about it. "Oh, it’s a great show. It’s really stunning. You’re in good company," the Shameless star shared. And that seemed to make Seal feel a little bit better. "OK. I am? Seal ‘Kiss From A Ross’ great. I can see the connection."

However, he still didn't seem too excited by the whole thing. "Well, I mean you know, when you hear the name O. J. Simpson and obviously what it’s been associated with, you don’t necessarily think that that’s something to have your, you know, seminal song associated with, but then I guess I trust that hearing from William [H. Macy] that I’m in good company," he said.

Well, we'd have to agree. Check out another equally-dishy highlight from Seal's WWHL appearance, below.
