John Legend signs with Republic Records

Legend releases new holiday single

Incomparable EGOT (EMMY, GRAMMY, Oscar, Tony)-winning singer, songwriter, producer, actor, and social activist John Legend has signed with Republic Records. The move kicks off another creative renaissance for the 12-time Grammy Award winning superstar.

“I am excited to partner with Republic Records in this next chapter of my career,” says Legend. “Everyone at the label has been so wonderful to work with. I am thrilled to take this new artistic and creative journey with them and look forward to sharing new music with people soon.”

“There’s just no one like John Legend. He’s the consummate 21st century superstar whose impact across culture and the world at large only continues to expand. We’re so honored to join forces with him as he launches this next era with some of his most powerful music yet,” comments Republic Records President, West Coast Creative Wendy Goldstein.

To mark the occasion, Legend has released a new holiday single entitled “You Deserve It All.” As a part of the release, Legend has partnered with LG Signature, the ultra-premium brand of LG Electronics. Legend will serve as their newest brand ambassador and has collaborated with them on a Holiday Campaign entitled, “Legendary Gift: The Signature.”

Legend notably co-wrote “You Deserve It All” with GRAMMY Award-winning diamond-selling singer and songwriter Meghan Trainor. It marks a reunion between these two powerhouses who first collaborated on 2016’s “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” — which went 4x platinum and ascended to the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. The song was produced by Grammy Award-winner Raphael Saadiq and the upcoming accompanying music video directed by Drew Kirsch [Taylor Swift] seamlessly brings the song to life.

Legend is set to release his first album for Republic Records in 2022.
