John Legend - John Legend thought All of Me would be a hit


John Legend predicted his song 'All of Me' would be the biggest of his career so far.

The singer, who performed the romantic ballad at The Grammy Awards last month, said the show was a ''game-changer'' and it helped to make it a hit.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''The song was doing pretty well, it was making its way up the chart, but it went up dramatically after The Grammys.

''It went from number 49 on the iTunes chart to number three. I always told the record label that this was going to be the biggest song from this album and I thought it would probably be the biggest song of my career to this point.

''And as of now it just reached that point on the US chart and several international charts.''

John was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best R&B Album for his record 'Love in the Future' but missed out to Alicia Keys for her album 'Girl on Fire'.

However, he insists he's not bitter, having won nine awards at the ceremony in the past.

He said: ''We were all in a good mood after The Grammys, just from the success of the night.

''All the response from my performance had been so good and it was just pretty euphoric knowing that in such a high profile way we did something that resonated with people.''

The 35-year-old star is heading out on the road next month for an acoustic tour in the US, stopping at venues including including Los Angeles' Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York.

He said: ''I'm touring again in March and I'm preparing for that right now. It's a special tour, it's different to anything I've done before. It's an unplugged tour.

''Just me on piano and a string quartet. It'll be the first time I've done a full tour like that. I'm curious of how it's going to work and excited.''

John's album 'Love in the Future' and his single 'All of Me' are out now on G.O.O.D/Columbia.
