John Legend has been sharing music from his forthcoming album and today released his new song, the title track, “Bigger Love.” Listen to “Bigger Love” HERE. The uplifting and upbeat pop-soul song reminds us all of the many forms of love in the world and the innate part of human nature in all of us that we need to love more in these times.
“This song is a celebration of love, resilience, and hope,” says Legend. “I wrote it last year before any of us could have imagined what 2020 would become. The message of the song is that love can help carry us through these dark times and music can bring us joy and inspiration. I hope it brings some light to people’s day and maybe inspires a dance break!”

“Bigger Love” follows his latest release “Actions,” which Rolling Stone declared, “Hear John Legend Urge For ‘Actions’ on New Single,” and the #1 song “Conversations in the Dark,” which MTV says about the song, “John Legend has written the world’s sweetest vows,” and calls it a “tear-jerker,” while Billboard declares that “Conversations,” is “his romantic new song….[that] details the moments while falling in love.” Both songs are featured on his upcoming album Bigger Love to be released this summer.
“Bigger Love” was written by Legend with Ryan Tedder, Zach Skelton, and Cautious Clay. Legend’s Bigger Love Tour is scheduled to begin August 12 and visit more than 25 cities across North America. For more information, please visit www.johnlegend.com.
