American R&B crooner John Legend is officially the sexiest man alive in 2019, according to People Magazine.

John Legend is the fifth non-actor to win the title, since Blake Shelton (2017), David Beckham (2015), Adam Levine (2013), and John F. Kennedy Junior (1988).

The 40-year-old, All Of Me songwriter, who is the youngest EGOT winner (a person who has won Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards), replaces British actor and DJ Idris Elba as the world’s sexiest man from last year – taking a comedic jab at himself as he basked in the distinction.

“1995 John would be very perplexed to be following 2018 @IdrisElba as #sexiestman alive,” Legend said on Twitter. “Hell, 2019 John is about as equally perplexed but thank you @People for finding me sexy. I’ll take it.”

Legend, on the cover of People, was called the ‘good guy who got it all’, since he’s the 14th EGOT winner in history, with a sizzling hot supermodel Chrissy Teigen as his wife and his two adorable children, Luna and Miles.
