I was a very precocious kid, so I was very thirsty for learning. I wanted to learn the piano. I wanted to study the encyclopedia. I wanted to do everything. I just wanted to soak up a lot of knowledge.

Collaboration

Trainor tells that she will be teaming up with Legend in a song on her upcoming debut album.

I wrote the song like years ago and it wasn’t going to make my album but my Uncle Burton Toney, the man, my Trinidadian uncle [he is married to Meghan’s aunt] he met my managers and forced them to listen. ‘He said you need to hear this song, she didn’t show you this song, you need to hear it. And I thought because it wasn’t shoo-wop vibey I blanked out, and the girl, my manager, listened to it and started crying and she’s like ‘You know you’ve got to cut this, right?’

So then I cut it, I produced a version with my friend and they sent it to John because he’s on my management company and he’s like ‘I love this I want to be a part of it’…It’s gonna be cool.

John Legend interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Legend during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his single All Of Me. 

I wrote it a couple years ago and then when I came home I said, ‘I wrote a really good song baby I think you’re going to love it.’ And I sang it to her and she started crying, so I knew it would be a special song and then I sang it at our wedding and a lot of people have been using it at their weddings.

Who Do We Think We Are

Legend releases the music video for Who Do We Think We Are, directed by Paul Gore. The song features Rick Ross and is off of Legend’s album Love In The Future.

The song has a few themes. The pre-chorus says, “I’m not afraid to fly” and “We’re not afraid to die.” Obviously that’s embracing the idea of risk-taking, not only in love but also in life. Not being afraid to pursue your dreams to the fullest. Not being afraid to live out your fantasies in life, and embrace some risks of falling. And so, that’s really what the song is about, and some of the lyrics kind of celebrate decadence and luxury, and enjoying your success, and obviously we played on those lyrics quite a bit and made what I think is a very beautiful and artistic video that’s also very sexy, and high-fashion and luxurious.

john-legend-covers-fault-magazine-exclusive-videoLegend appears on the cover of the February 2013 issue of Fault magazine. He talks about his advice to younger performers, his musical influence, and his plans for 2013.

Well, when I was younger, lots of soul music: Motown and artists like Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Nat King Cole [and] Luther Vandross. Then, when I was a bit older (in my early teens), artists and groups like Jodeci had a big influence on me.
