John Legend has announced details of his highly anticipated eighth studio album, Legend, and shared a new single from it in the form of “All She Wanna Do,” featuring Saweetie.

The new record will take the shape of a double album and will feature guest appearances from a stacked list of artists. Rick Ross, JID, Ty Dolla $ign, Jhene Aiko, Amber Mark, Jazmine Sullivan, Muni Long, Jada Kingdom, Rapsody, and Ledisi are all slated to appear, alongside Saweetie.

Legend will be released on September 9 via EMI Records and was executive produced by the 12-time Grammy-winning star and producer Ryan Tedder.

“Until this point, I’ve never used an aspect of my name as the title of an album,” Legend explained of the new record’s title. “I had to earn that, to live up to it by delivering in the performance and the music. And this is me saying, I’m proud of who I am, I’m confident in the work I’ve done, and I’m just going to declare it.”

“All She Wanna Do” details observing someone living their best life and wanting to be alongside them. “She moves in peculiar ways,” Legend sings on the track. “This room is nothing more than her stage.”

The new single follows recent tracks “Honey (ft. Muni Long)” and “Dope (ft. JID),” both of which will also appear on Legend.

Meanwhile, the acclaimed artist will kick off the second leg of his Las Vegas residency, Love In Las Vegas, tonight (August 5). The residency will take place at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood until August 20 and then return for a second run from October 14 through 29. More information and tickets for the shows can be found here.
