  • [Survivor] The John Legend Artist Survivor :: Round 3




    John Legend is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, actor, film producer, theatre director, and philanthropist. Prior to the release of Legend's debut album, Get Lifted (2004), he had collaborated with already established artists and signed to Kanye West's GOOD Music.

    He is one of 16 people, and the first black man, to have won all four of the following awards: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony (EGOT) - 11 Grammys + Academy Award for Best Original Song (Glory for Selma) + Primetime Emmy (producer of NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar) + Tony (for co-producing Jitney for the Broadway stage).

    60 Songs, all singles and some album cuts, to revisit John's discography.

        mmmm, no interest in John... if there are not at least 2 extra players I think it's best to skip this!

          Totally loved I Can Change - what a vibrant song. And So High made me feel like I was in church.

          I'm a casual fam of John at best - I know some of his bigger hits, but on the whole not that familiar with him. He has such an interesting tonal quality to his voice - it's very reminiscent in parts of Stevie Wonder.

                1 Ordinary People - a classic!
                2 Cross The Line - probably my favourite "discovery", very smooth.
                3. Green Light - When I clicked "Green Light" and he was playing "Ordinary People", thought I'd clicked the wrong song. ​ The song feels a bit Weeknd-ish.
                4. Used to Love U - really enjoyed this, though Preacher Kanye was an unpleasant surprise!
                5. Tonight (Best You Ever Had) - always felt this was slightly overrated, but pretty nice.
                6. Let's Get Lifted - very passable, I quite like the backing vocals.

                Nothing in this batch that I discovered that I liked as much as I Can Change and So High.
