John Legend has built his reputation as a soulful, sensitive balladeer and that comes across even more so than usual in his latest video for “You & I (Nobody in the World),” the fourth single from last year’s Love in the Future.
The singer-songwriter shows love to all kinds of women in the “You & I (Nobody in the World)” video, in the same way that Pharrell did for his “Marilyn Monroe” video — only there’s no dancing and bright sets in Legend’s visual clip.
Instead, the video, directed by fashion photographer, videographer and Lana Del Rey main squeeze Francesco Carrozzini, is a more realistic depiction of women in intimate everyday moments.
There’s just one exception to the cast: The video opens and closes with Legend’s wife, supermodel Chrissy Teigen. But her appearance is especially appropriate considering the pair first met eight years ago on set for his “Stereo” video.
