John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's Relationship Comes Full Circle in His Video For "Wild"
On Thursday, John Legend debuted the music video for his new song "Wild," featuring Gary Clark Jr., which stars his wife Chrissy Teigen. The pair first met on the set of Legend's 2006 music video "Stereo" which was directed by Nabil Elderkin; and in what feels like a full-circle moment, Legend's newest video was directed by the same filmmaker. In a Q&A held prior to the video's premiere, Legend and Teigen talked about how the music videos they've appeared in together have been chronicling their family, with "Wild" being the first to feature son Miles.
"I wanna drive you / Wild, wild, wild," Legend sings, and that's exactly what "Wild" will make you feel. Set against a gorgeous ocean backdrop — they shot the video while in Mexico — the video follows Legend and Teigen as they fall in love, fight, and make up as a family. As if the lush setting wasn't enough, the video is also intercut with scenes featuring a pair of wild horses whose relationship mimics that of Teigen and Legend's. Perhaps the biggest surprise of all is that it ends on a shot of Teigen cradling her stomach, announcing that they're expecting their third child. You can watch the full video for "Wild" above.
