In a world surrounded by water, John Legend says it’s never too late to learn how to swim.

The Grammy Award-winning singer revealed on Twitter Monday (Jan. 28) that he hasn’t taken a swimming lesson since he was 5 years old – meaning after more than three decades, he never learned how to swim. But it sounds like all that is about to change.

“I can’t really swim. Today I took my first swim lesson since I was like 5,” he tweeted. “My dad learned in his 60’s so I feel like I’m ahead of schedule.”

It’s good to know that the “Love Me Now” singer has a sense of humor about this insecurity, and Twitter had his back. Many fans thanked Legend for sharing, admitting they too were going through the same experience.  

In jest, many asked Legend if his music has all been a lie, referencing his 2013 single, “All of Me,” where he sings, “My head’s under water, but I’m breathing fine/You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind.”
