Before becoming an established musician, John Legend worked with songs that became hits not for himself but for other artists. Some of the biggest names he worked with were Lauryn Hill, Jay-Z, and Janet Jackson, contributing to songs that would later reach the top of the charts. His musical prowess was soon noticed when he got signed with GOOD Music, Kanye West's record label.
Before long, the then-new artist released his debut album "Get Lifted" in 2004. It was an immediate hit, well supported by artists such as Snoop Dog, Kanye, and Min Ben-Ari, who appeared on the album's tracks. The album spawned four banger songs entitled "Used to Love U," "Ordinary People," "Number One," and "So High." The album peaked at the top fourth spot of the Billboard 200. The following year, Legend would receive eleven Grammy nominations and win three for "Best New Artist," "Best R&B Vocal Performance," and "Best R&B Album." After another year, his sophomore "Once Again" came to be with the single "Save Room," reaching the top ten of Billboard 200 (his second time on the chart). This album would gain him another two Grammy wins. Ready to defy expectations, 2008 was marked by the release of his third album "Evolver," this time, he shifted to other genres, such as reggae and pop never heard from him before.
Legend's rise to stardom was smooth sailing as the 2010s came. His first album of the decade was "Love in the Future," which would spawn the international hit song "All of Me." This album was followed by "Darkness and Light" in 2016, "A Legendary Christmas" in 2018, "Bigger Love" in 2020, and "Legend" in 2022. All of these albums peaked in the charts.
