John Legend Premieres ‘Bigger Love’ Music Video
The video features shots of people dancing in their rooms, connecting with loved ones over video chat, playing music on their windowsills, and even sewing face masks. There are also a few clips of health care workers on the job.
“This video was made to celebrate our shared love, hope and resilience,” John told People of the video’s message. He said he wanted it to be a “musical hug” and “dance break” during these “crazy circumstances.”
“I just hope it gives people a moment to feel good,” he said. “I know things are very difficult and a bit scary right now and music isn’t going to solve everyone’s problems, but hopefully it can give people a bit of a lift and bring some light to these dark times.”
John added that fans from six continents are featured in the video. He encouraged people to create more TikTok videos dancing to the song, although he drew the line at participating in a dance challenge himself. “You don’t want that,” he said. “Nobody wants that.”

Fans have been tweeting their love for John’s new video, with some of them saying it brought them to tears. “Beautiful song and beautiful & powerful video,” one user wrote. Another said John “captured everything we are all going through and still finding love through it all.”
“Bigger Love” will also be the title track on John’s upcoming seventh studio album. The singer just announced that the album will be available on June 19, 2020. You can pre-order it here.
In March, John told Jimmy Fallon that Bigger Love is his “sexiest” album, joking, “If you’re stuck at home and want to make some coronababies… if you spend a lot of time with your partner and you need a soundtrack to that.”
John has already released a few other songs this year, including “Memories” (with Buju Banton), “Actions,” and “Last Time I Say Sorry” (with Kane Brown).
