John Legend Announces LEGEND Album


John Legend’s eighth studio album is simply titled LEGEND and it will be released very soon in September. The title is a statement about the singer’s longtime presence in popular consciousness. He says, “Until this point, I’ve never used an aspect of my name as the title of an album. I had to earn that, to live up to it by delivering in the performance and the music. And this is me saying, I’m proud of who I am, I’m confident in the work I’ve done, and I’m just going to declare it.”  The third single from Legend is “All She Wanna Do” featuring rapper Saweetie. The double album has guest appearances from Jazmine Sullivan, J.I.D., Muni Long, Rick Ross, Rapsody, Ledisi, Ty Dolla $ign and Jhene Aiko. Legend also started the second leg of his Las Vegas residency which will continue until the end of October. LEGEND, the album, will be available on September 9th.
