John Legend has always been one to use his artistry to promote improving social situations and changing peoples' perspectives on how we view fellow human beings. The 10 time Grammy Award winner has a new, powerful video released today for his track "Love Me Now."
Domiz Refugee Camp in Northern Iraq, Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, FL, Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic and Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota are the scenes featured here to give the viewer a glimpse of life people are dealt with around the world. No matter how bad conditions may be people will find a way to love each other. With that in mind you should love today rather than waiting to love tomorrow.
Director Nabil Elderkin, whose work has credits with Kanye West and Travis Scott, had this to say on the video:
“This video shows how love can be shared in some of the most difficult situations on earth in which the human spirit and connection with each other prevails. From one of the longest standing refugee camps in northern Iraq just 45 miles outside of Mosul, to Standing Rock Reservation where they are fighting against the Dakota Access Pipeline that threatens their sacred lands and all of our water, it is a glimpse into these couples' lives and the lives of those in their communities.”
