John Legend is out with his eighth and biggest studio album titled “LEGEND”.
The massive twenty-four track double album features a who’s-who with Jazmine Sullivan, Jhene Aiko, Rick Ross, Muni Long, and so many more that he makes it impossible to not go through the whole thing. The U.S. singer, songwriter, pianist turns 44 this year and hasn’t aged at all, giving the goods across almost an hour-and-a-half of music on this one.
His lead singles ‘Honey’ and ‘Dope’ show up from earlier this year as he leaves off 2022 singles ‘FREE’ and the Nas-featured ‘Tomorrow’ from February. At this point there isn’t a stage or a show that John hasn’t blessed and is a living legend who really requires no introduction.
He does put out a lengthy announcement on his IG writing “LEGEND is a double album that began its journey in early 2021. We were spending a lot of time with our closest loved ones, grieving the ones we lost, but also looking forward to a brighter time. We were ready to go back outside! Ready to celebrate again. And I was ready to make music!” He continues saying “I spent hours upon hours in my Huntley Studio with some of the most gifted co-writers, musicians and producers. It’s an expression of deep appreciation and understanding of all the music and influences that made me the artist I am, my wife and family, and all the loves in my life, all the stories that led me here.”
An exciting release that will surely be found on all kinds of different radio stations across the globe. John is also kicking off a Las Vegas residency that commences October 14th at Zappos.
