Multi-platinum artist and EGOT winner John Legend is back with his highly anticipated new release Legend, a double album featuring guests Saweetie, Rick Ross, Muni Long, Jazmine Sullivan, Rapsody, Ledisi, Jhene Aiko, Ty Dolla $ign and more.
Executive produced by Legend and Ryan Tedder, this vibrant project is suffused with an unapologetic spirit of sensuality and joy, informed by the vulnerability of pain, praise and healing.
“I'm so thrilled to be releasing new music,” says Legend. “The past year or so has been so exciting for me creatively. I have been writing and collaborating with some of the most talented people in music, and we have some great new material to share with the world. ‘Dope’ is one of my favorites. I love the energy of the song. I loved collaborating with my gifted co-writers and producers, and J.I.D is one of my favorite emerging artists in hip-hop. I hope the song can be a part of people's soundtrack for this summer.”
Legend has garnered twelve Grammys, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, a Tony, and an Emmy, making him the first African-American man to earn an EGOT. Legend has released seven celebrated albums over the course of his career and recently launched his critically-acclaimed Las Vegas Residency Love In Las Vegas, which began in April 2022 at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. In 2018, Legend starred in NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert, winning an Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special and nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor (Limited Series). He joined the Emmy-nominated show The Voice for Season 16 and most recently wrapped Season 21 as coach. John is also a partner in Get Lifted Film Co., serving as an Executive Producer for Giving Voice, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey, Atlanta’s Missing And Murdered: The Lost Children, and more.
As a philanthropist, Legend initiated the #FREEAMERICA campaign in 2015 and most recently, founded the initiative, HUMANLEVEL, which is igniting systematic change and building racial equity across American cities and communities.
