Change LEGEND NAMES dynamically like how we have an option for dynamic titles

I would like to know if there is a way to change the legend names dynamically. 


I know we can rename the legend names. But I want those names to be changed dynamically like how we have dynamic titles (expression based titles)

For example in the above screenshot, I have CY Sales, PY Sales, etc.


Instead I would like to show 2021 Sales, 2020 Sales.


And when we select a value in the Year Slicer (let's say 2016), the CY Sales should change it's name to 2016 Sales, PY to 2015 and so on.
