John Legend has announced that he will be releasing his eighth studio album, Legend, on September 9 via Republic Records.
Along with the album announcement, Legend also shared a new song “All She Wanna Do,” featuring Saweetie.
Legend will be a double album, featuring collaborations with Rick Ross, Muni Long, Jazmine Sullivan, Jada Kingdom, Rapsody, Ledisi, Jhene Aiko, Ty Dolla $ign and several other artists.
“It’s about a woman that you see out in a club who is just living her best life, embracing the party life and you want to be a part of it! You wan to touch this energy that she has,” Legend said about “All She Wanna Do.”
Legend and OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder are the producers of the upcoming double album. A press release says the album is “suffused with an unapologetic spirit of sensuality and joy, informed by the full vulnerability of pain, praise and healing.”
“Until this point, I’ve never used an aspect of my name as the title of an album,” Legend said in a statement about embracing his iconic name for the first time in an album title. “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.”
Legend previously released two singles “Honey,” featuring Long, and “Dope,” featuring JID, from the upcoming double album.
