Nearly four years have separated fans of John Legend from his latest studio album, ‘Darkness & Light,’ but the wait for a new body of work came to a close Friday (June 19) with the unveiling of ‘Bigger Love.’
A 16-track affair boasting appearances from fellow GRAMMY winner Koffee and GRAMMY-nominated R&B star Jhené Aiko among its high profile features, the project stands as Legend’s attempt to be an uplifting voice in society.
“This album is more focused on joy, love, hope, and on optimism,” he stated. “I think my last album [2016’s Darkness and Light] was kind of an album about being worried about being concerned and I definitely feel both. I feel like the world needs some joy.”
