John Legend Makes Modern Soul Classic [INTERVIEW]


EBONY caught up with John Legend on the set of his new commercial for General Motors’ Chevrolet Impala. Surprise: Legend is the new face of the brand! If that’s not enough, he has even more on his plate with upcoming nuptials to model Chrissy Teigen and a new album, Love in the Future, set for release September 3.

Legend’s first single from the album, “Who Do We Think We Are,” is already on airwaves and features rapper Rick Ross over a smoothed-out sample of Jean Knight’s 1971 hit “Mr. Big Stuff.” The soul singer opened up to EBONY about his new music, the troubles of his former collaborator Lauryn Hill and shared his thoughts on the future of Soul music.
