Watch John Legend’s Moving “Love Me Now” Video
John Legend has released the video for his uplifting track “Love Me Now,” the first single off his forthcoming album Darkness And Light (out December 2).
Directed by Nabil Elderkin, the clip finds couples from all walks of life in various places like Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, Iraq, Orlando and the Dominican Republic. Legend also has some very cute scenes with his wife and model Chrissy Teigen, in which they canoodle in a field and hang out with their baby daughter, Luna. It’s a moving image, and one that is much needed in this uncertain political climate.
“We didn’t think about the election when we planned the release date for this song and video,” he said of the clip in a recent Instagram post. “But in this time of conflict and uncertainty, it’s clear that we all need more love. I find it in my family and in my music. Embracing my family has made today full of love and light despite the bad news.”
He continued, “Love is universal. We all need it. We all can give it. And it will ultimately win over hate. I have to believe that.”
