Kanye West Executive-Producing John Legend’s New LP

    If you missed the pre-show award announcements last night, then you probably also missed the fact that John Legend and the Roots took home three Grammys for their work together on Wake Up! They won Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance Best R&B Album for the album and then Best R&B Song for “Shine.” And while I’m still frustrated that the Roots lost to Eminem for Best Rap Album, my anger is subsiding with the news that Legend is again working closely with Kanye West on a forthcoming album. This will be Legend’s first record since 2008’s pretty good Evolver and it also features West as a co-writer on some tracks.
