John Legend writes ''50-80 songs'' each time he makes an album.
The 'All of Me' hitmaker is currently working on his fifth studio LP and revealed he has been keeping to a ''schedule'' as he always does when writing in a bid to maximise his creativity.
He explained: ''When I'm writing the album, I like to schedule writing sessions rather than just hope inspiration randomly comes to me. I like to schedule my creativity so that I'm more proactive about searching for inspiration. It makes me more productive and prolific. Every song won't be great, but I create 50-80 songs every album, in the hopes that a significant portion will be great.''
The 36-year-old star - who is married to model Chrissy Teigen - continued to say he is feeling ''motivated'' with his upcoming collection because he always has something to express with his songs.
He said: ''I LOVE music. I LOVE writing music. I love the challenge of creating something new and special. There's still so much I want to do and accomplish. It's not hard to stay motivated and inspired. (sic)''
The nine-time Grammy Award winner went on to praise his pal, rapper Kanye West, who he named as ''the most influential'' musician he has ever worked with.
During a Q&A on Reddit, he said: ''Of all the artists I've worked with, Kanye has been the most influential and important one. We've worked together since 2002 and he's helped my career in so many ways
''He's one of my favorite artists of all time. 'Flashing Lights' is one of my favorites, but there are many more. (sic)''
