Why He’s Dope: John Legend has a penchant for performing swoon-worthy singles time and time again, many of which are all his own. From Get Lifted to Once Again to Revolver, the G.O.O.D. Music member has had a heavy hand in the craftsmanship of each album’s lyrical content. In addition to winning a whopping nine Grammys, Legend – a singer, pianist, actor and songwriter – received the special Starlight award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2007.
