New Albums: John Legend, The Rolling Stones, Post Malone

John Legend's fifth studio album opens with a startling admission. "They say sing what you know, but I've sung what they want," the University of Pennsylvania grad born John Stephens announces on "I Know Better," copping to allowing the marketplace to shape his art in a way that nearly everyone does but few would admit. Those days are over, he proclaims: "Some folks do what they're told, but, baby, this time I won't."
