Multi-platinum, 11-time Grammy Award-winner John Legend today released his new album Bigger Love via Columbia Records, available now everywhere. As John Legend sees it, the world could use a reminder of the power of love and his seventh studio album, Bigger Love, is just that.
“During these painful times, some of us may wonder if it’s ok to laugh or dance or be romantic,” Legend says. “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.”
Bigger Love is classic John Legend: Soulful, joyful, loving, hopeful and tender. The 16-track album is a heady mix of jubilant pop-soul (“Bigger Love,” “I Do”, “Wild”), lush grown and sexy R&B (“U Move I Move,” “Slow Cooker,” “Favorite Place”), hypnotic hip-hop inspired grooves (“Ooh Laa,” “Actions”) and the powerful ballads that are the cornerstone of his work (“Conversations in the Dark,” “Never Break”).
