Since debuting with 2004’s Get Lifted and its breakout single, “Ordinary People,” John Legend had been waiting for his moment. Previously the 35-year-old Philadelphia-raised singer/pianist was comfortable carrying on the legacy of R&B greats like Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield, and hip enough to collaborate with the likes of Kanye West and Lauryn Hill (he played piano on “Everything Is Everything”), but it took a full decade for Legend’s popularity to truly blossom. That’s what a song like “All of Me,” from last year’s Love in the Future, will do. Written for Legend’s own recent bride, Chrissie Teigen, and already one of the all-time great wedding ballads, it knocked Pharrell’s “Happy” out of the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 back in May and finally pushed Legend to the level of arena/amphitheater headliner. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy, either.
