"I'm so grateful for the journey I've been on," Legend said about his new album. "I felt like this was the time to say 'This album is me. It's a double album. It's so representative of who I am, all that's been poured into me musical influences, inspirations, all the loves in my life. This is so much me on this album that I wanted to self-title this album so I'm just going to call it LEGEND, and hopefully you all feel what we've created and love what we've created."
Legend also performed fan favorites like "Ordinary People," "All For Me," "Used to Love U," "Love Me Now," and "Save Room." He also worked in other new songs like "Nervous" and "Honey" with Muni Long, "Splash" featuring Ty Dolla $ign & Jhene Aiko, and "Wonder Woman."
During his Q&A with Shay, Legend recalled how he got his stage name from spoken word poet J. Ivey and why it took eight albums for him to make a project with his name. He also explains the different sides of his double-album. Act 1 is the more upbeat, fun records like "Dope" featuring JID while Act 2 is the more inspirational and reflective side of the project. He also talked about teaming up with Ryan Tedder of One Republic to work on the album and his Las Vegas residency.
