When we spoke to John Legend last year about his then-new album Love In The Future, he revealed that 'All Of Me' was about his fiancée Chrissy Teigen, who cried when he first sang it to her. Quite why it's suddenly launched up the charts across the globe four months after its official release is anyone's guess, but given it's so far won him his highest charting US single yet, we wouldn't be surprised if he's now getting a little teary himself.
'All Of Me' is one of the more straightforward tracks on Legend's latest record, but then stripped-back piano ballads are when John has always shined brightest. What's more, that he manages to pull off lines like "What's going on in that beautiful mind/ I'm on your magical mystery ride," with soothing sophistication is a testament to his rich and textured vocals. Anti-Valentiners will heave, but as far as love songs go, they don't get much more timeless than this.
