Info for Bigger Love



An extra dose of pptimism: John Legend has released his seventh studio album, Bigger Love, via Columbia Records.

“During these painful times, some of us may wonder if it’s okay to laugh or dance or be romantic,” Legend said. “Lately, the images of Black people in the media have been showing us with knees on our necks, in mourning, or expressing our collective outrage. We feel all those emotions. But it’s important for us to continue to show the world the fullness of what it is to be Black and human. Through our art, we are able to do that. This album is a celebration of love, joy, sensuality, hope, and resilience, the things that make our culture so beautiful and influential.”

The 16-track album encompasses jubilant pop-soul (‘Bigger Love’, ‘I Do’, ‘Wild’), lush R&B (‘U Move, I Move’, ‘Slow Cooker’, ‘Favorite Place’), hip-hop inspired grooves (‘Ooh Laa’, ‘Actions’) and the powerful ballads that are the cornerstone of his work (‘Conversations in the Dark’, ‘Never Break’).

Collaborators on the record include the Grammy award-winning reggae artist Koffee, who teams up with Legend on ‘Don’t Walk Away’.

Rolling Stone says ‘Bigger Love’ is “a dance floor-ready pop song…that exudes jubilance even in these tough times.” In addition to “Bigger Love,” the album also includes “Actions,” which Billboard says, “can mean something slightly different for everyone, but once again, Legend has used his platform for positive motivation” and the #1 song “Conversations in the Dark,” which MTV calls a “tear-jerker” and says “John Legend has written the world’s sweetest vows.”

John Legend
is a nine-time Grammy Award winning recording artist, critically-acclaimed concert performer, philanthropist/social activist, and was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people. Legend’s debut album, Get Lifted (2004) sold more than three million copies worldwide and earned an astounding eight Grammy nominations with three wins for Best New Artist, Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B album. Legend’s follow-up album, Once Again (2006) earned RIAA platinum certification and a Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. High off the success of his third consecutive Top 10 album, Evolver (2008), Legend embarked on an extensive world tour with an 11 piece band - his largest traveling show to date. Inspired by the monumental 2008 Presidential election, Legend teamed up with The Roots to release the socially conscious album, Wake Up! (2010.) The album was nominated for five Grammy Awards and won Best R&B Album, Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B song (for “Shine”- an original composition also featured in Academy Award-winning director Davis Guggenheim’s documentary film Waiting for Superman) along with two NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Album and Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration. In 2007, Legend launched the Show Me Campaign, a nonprofit organization fighting poverty around the world. John also sits on the Boards of The Education Equality Project, Teach for America, and the Harlem Village Academies. Legend has been honored several times for his activism, including the 2010 BET Humanitarian of the Year award, the 2009 CARE Humanitarian Award for Global Change, and the 2009 Africare’s Bishop John T. Walker Distinguished Humanitarian Service Award. In early 2012, Legend released one of the hottest songs of his career, the RIAA gold-certified hit “Tonight (Best You’ve Ever Had),” which sat atop the Urban AC radio chart for six consecutive weeks. Legend recently released his fifth studio album Love in the Future, with executive producers Kanye West and Dave Tozer, and will embark on a North American tour this autumn.

This album contains no booklet.
