John Legend - 

Neo-soul singer and pianist John Legend combined the raw fervor of Cody ChesnuTT and the burning precision of D'Angelo. Born John StephensLegend was a child prodigy who grew up in Ohio, where he began singing gospel and playing piano at the tender age of five. Legend left Ohio at 16 to attend college in Philadelphia, and it was there that he first found a larger audience. Not yet out of his teens, Legend was tapped to play piano on Lauryn Hill's "Everything Is Everything" in 1998. After completing college, he moved to New York, where he began to build a loyal following playing in nightclubs and releasing CDs that he would sell at shows. He also became an in-demand session musician, playing and occasionally writing for a wide array of artists, including Alicia KeysTwistaJanet Jackson, and Kanye West.

It wasn't until West signed the young talent to his new label that the Legend name was adopted with 2004's Solo Sessions Vol. 1: Live at the Knitting FactoryGet LiftedLegend's first studio album, was released that December. On the strength of enduring single "Ordinary People," the album reached the Top Five of the Billboard 200. This led to three Grammy Awards: Best R&B Album, Best R&B Male Vocal Performance, and Best New Artist. Once Again, which peaked at number three on the Billboard 200 and number one on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, followed in October 2006 and eventually went platinum. Live from Philadelphia, sold exclusively at Target stores, was a successful stopgap release -- a Top Ten album, despite its limited retail presence. October 2008's Evolver spun off the sprightly crossover hit "Green Light" but managed only gold-selling status. Legend followed it with September 2010's Wake Up!, in which he was backed by the Roots. The album featured covers of still-relevant, socially aware songs like Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes' "Wake Up Everybody" and Donny Hathaway's "Little Ghetto Boy." After he toured with SadeLegend collaborated with producers and writers including West and Dave Tozer for Love in the Future, released in September 2013.

His music is kinda-ass(ish) but I like that one song Alain is singing. But only because I watch that movie every week and they play it when Michael Ealy is being him-dreamy-self.

I guess some people might think that about his music. I enjoy it. But whenever he has been interviewed and I have watched, I want to reach into the tv and beat the crap out of him. He is so....ugh! I can't say.

Maybe not, but I like Kanye's music. Based on Kat's answer, sounds like they are running close together. Ugh.
