Major League Baseball says the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter will perform the national anthem before Game Two at Yankee Stadium Thursday.

New York natives Jay-Z and Alicia Keys will warm up the audience with their single “Empire State of Mind” before Legend sings.

The league says Thursday’s World Series matchup between the New York Yankees and the defending champion Philadelphia Phillies will be dedicated to “the legacy of Roberto Clemente and the spirit of community service.”

John hit the streets of Miami with his dog and his bike for a good workout. The man’s pecks are the business. I’m jealous, gonna have to hit the gym now lol.

Oh and if you haven’t yet picked up his 3rd studio effort “Evolver” please do so. It was one of the better albums of 2008…

What’s John Legend’s Problem???

whats-wrong-with-john

I’m trying to understand why an artist would go through all the trouble of re-invention only to contradict it.

John Legend has been perceived in many ways, most of which line right up with conservative, contemporary and even boring…never sexy… For years these perceptions were lost on John and his management but with the fiery upbeat first single “Green Light” he showed us that there was more too him then that damn piano. For perhaps the first time he made us dance! If you haven’t heard that song go download it at iTunes yesterday. It’s a great track that featured Andre 3000 and promised a different album and ultimately a whole new John Legend…

The album couldn’t have delivered that promise more. John and Kanye were at the helm of the project’s production and with the help of The Louis Vuitton Don “Evolver” ended up being the best John Legend album on record… or at least the most interesting and listenable. Fourteen tracks that make the proceeding projects seem almost as conservative and one dimensional as they were. Not to say John hasn’t had some very entertaining moments prior to Green Light. “Heaven” and “Ordinary People” are two of his best but there’s never been this much outside influence before. Brand new tracks “Satisfaction” “Quickly” “No Other Love” and “It’s Over” are my favorites!

While the new album shatters expectations John Legend himself remains the same…. To me that means that Kanye talked him into alot on this project. For the second single John reveals his true colors, colors that the game and the fans know all too well. “Everybody Knows” sounds like something right of the first two albums. Why would you get everyone to believe that you changed and then contradict yourself??? The fans bought the album and know what’s up but for those that needed more evidence it’s not looking good. His second single should have been “Satisfaction” or “It’s Over” in my opinion, though many other tracks would have been appropriate. As a result of this second single momentum has nearly died and he may or may not get approved for a third single… We’re not all Mariah Carey…no shade.

Peep the video for “Everybody Knows” below… just in case you haven’t seen it:

Pretty descent video. I remember a time when John Legend was so asexual that you wouldn’t notice if he was naked. I applaud him for working on that, hittin the gym, cutting his hair. Very Good John. You may get some drawlz thrown at you when you take the stage this summer…

As far as this album’s promotion goes Mr. Legend is going to have to choose that next single very very very carefully and deliver a great video to get back in the game. Life’s going to be little harder now that Jamie Foxx has dropped his new album not to mention the fact that D’Angelo, Ginuwine and Trey Songz will all be on the shelf by mid summer.

Awww yes… Estelle has had an amazing 2008 thanks in part to friends in high places and mostly to a very fresh, different sound. Her runaway smash hit “American Boy” killed radio and the charts this year making her one of America’s finest imported goods.
