Then, in 2004, Legend released his debut studio album, Get Lifted, and the world came to know him as an artist. The album was an instant success – the record debuted at number seven on the Billboard 200 and won him three Grammy Awards, including the 2006 Grammy Award for Best R&B Album, Best New Artist and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for his single "Ordinary People". Get Lifted went on to reach number four on the Billboard chart, and was the first of four consecutive albums to reach the top five. Numerous radio hits followed over the years, and his status as an R&B icon was secured.
