Legend: West Helped Sell My Album

Singer/songwriter JOHN LEGEND insists rapper KANYE WEST is responsible for the phenomenal success of his debut album GET LIFTED.

Legend, who has been nominated for eight Grammys alongside the JESUS WALKS rapper, is adamant more people were interested in his album because of his collaboration with West.

He says, "People cared more about (my album) because (Kanye) was attached to it and he was an 'it' artist at the time and still is, even more so now.

"So it got more attention than just the average R+B singer would have got."
