John Legend is releasing a new album and we cannot WAIT to hear it! Luckily we won’t have to wait long, as the artist revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that it drops later this year! But even sweeter, the new dad included a special surprise on the work just for his baby daughter Luna. WHAT a dotting daddy! Find out what he did for her here.
John Legend, 37, truly could not get any sweeter with his adorable five-month-old daughter Luna. The grammy-winner is even honoring her in a SUPER cute way on his newest album — set to drop before the year ends. Must be nice to be the daughter of a superstar, right? We sat down to talk with John at the Toronto International Film Festival, where – along with Mark Duplass — he was showcasing three aspiring filmmakers as part of their mentorship work with the AXE Collective.
“I wrote a song for her that is going to be on my next album,” John revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “I played it for her on the recorded version, but I haven’t actually sung it to her.” We LOVE that Luna will have her very own song on her dad’s latest album, it reminds us of John’s “All of Me,” which was written for his wife, Chrissy Teigen, 30. If Luna’s song is anything like that gorgeous love ballad, we’re sure it’ll be a huge hit!
After all, John has apparently had tons of practice singing to his daughter. Not only did Chrissy post a sweet video to Instagram earlier this month of her hubby serenading their little girl, but John admitted to us that he actually sings to her “all day.” Aw! “I sing random things all day to her,” he said. “I just make things up as I am trying to. I have songs I am singing to her when I am changing her diaper, all kinds of songs, but most of them are terrible.”
Come on, John, we’re sure they’re not THAT bad! But of course only his best work made the cut for his album, which as of right now, all we know is that it’s set to come out this year and that there’s a song for Luna on it. But according to John himself, more details will be available in good time. “We will have a whole campaign around it and we will talk all about it soon,” he said.
“But right now, we don’t want to let the cat out of the bag too much, but I am very excited and the album is coming later this year. So there are only a few months left.” And as for fatherhood, John is enjoying every precious second of it! “It’s so cool just seeing you and your wife in a little human,” the father-of-one gushed.
“When she smiles and when you just get to love on her and hug her, it’s a powerful thing… I think that is a beautiful thing, but it is also a new challenge and you have to learn a new way of being you as a parent rather than just as a husband and as a professional in your career.” Well it looks like he’s got that last part down pat with the release of his new album coming out soon. We can’t wait!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — are you excited for John’s newest album to drop? Do you think he’ll write more songs for Luna in the future?
