REPUBLIC LANDS A LEGEND


To commemorate Republic's signing of EGOT winner John Legend, label co-founders Monte and Avery Lipman and Prexy West Coast Creative Wendy Goldstein joined the multimedia superstar for this soulful in-person photo. Inspired by the experience, the Lipman brothers decided to change their last name to "Icon." Later, Wendy wondered how to sign off of a meeting when you're actually in the room together.

Legend will further solemnize the relationship by releasing a new holiday single, “You Deserve It All,” on 11/12. He's partnered with LG SIGNATURE and will serve as a brand ambassador—stay tuned for the holiday campaign Legendary Gift: The SIGNATURE.

“There’s just no one like John Legend," reads a quote from Goldstein. "He’s the consummate 21st century superstar whose impact on the culture and the world at large only continues to expand. We’re so honored to join forces with him as he launches this next era with some of his most powerful music yet.”

If you're still wondering about EGOT, it refers to the very small group of celebs who've won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award. This is not to be confused with DAC, which stands for participation trophies in Debate, Archery and Chess.
