John Legend, 41, will drop his sixth studio album “Bigger Love” via Columbia Records on June 19, 2020. On June 14, 2020, he took to Instagram to talk about the upcoming album, which was written and produced before the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the recent Black Lives Matter protests.
According to Legend, “Bigger Love” is a celebration of love, joy, sensuality, hope and resilience and an important showcase of what makes black culture so influential and empowering. The “All of Me” singer dedicates the album to his wife Chrissy Teigen, 34, his family and the rich tradition of black music that has made him the artist he is.
“Bigger Love” features 16 soulful, R&B-laden and pop-influenced tracks. It includes guest spots and collaborations with Gary Clark Jr., Jhene Aiko, Koffee, Rapsody and Camper.
Raphael Saadiq executive produced the album. He is the award-winning neo-soul artist who co-produced two of the most critically acclaimed albums of the last two decades namely “A Seat At The Table” by Solange and “Voodoo” by D’Angelo.
“U Move, I Move,” the focus single of “Bigger Love,” is a duet featuring Jhene Aiko. With its velvety harmonies, lush arrangements and an inescapable chorus, the R&B slow jam embraces the emotional range and vulnerability of both artists, taking listeners to a place of romantic high with just the right amount of warmth.
Teigen herself is a big fan of “U Move, I Move.” On May 25, 2020, she took to Twitter to tell her fans how much she loved the song.
Born on December 28, 1978, in Springfield, Ohio, United States, Legend married Teigen in Como, Italy on September 14, 2013. His 2013 song “All of Me” was written for her.
In 2004, Legend released his debut studio album “Get Lifted.” He released “Once Again” in 2006, “Evolver” in 2008, “Love in the Future” in 2013 and “Darkness and Light” in 2016.
