John Legend has unveiled the powerful music video for his new single Love Me Now.
The clip, directed by Nabil Elderkin, features John’s wife Chrissy Teigen and their baby daughter Luna. It also features people from all walks of life showing their love for one another highlighting that love knows no boundaries and in the end it always wins.
Earlier this week John posted a heartfelt message about the video on Instagram noting its poignant message in the wake of the shock US election result on Tuesday:
He posted: “We didn’t think about the election when we planned the release date for this song and video. 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. But it’s also important that we show love and empathy to people who may not look like us or live like us. Those who are marginalized and rejected, feared and left behind. The video premieres Friday and features a diverse group of people from all over the world. From Standing Rock to Iraq, from Orlando to the DR. Love is universal. We all need it. We all can give it. And it will ultimately win over hate. I have to believe that.”
Love Me Now is the first single to be lifted from John’s forthcoming album Darkness and Light, which arrives on 2nd December 2016.
