You’ve purchased the perfect little red dress, scheduled your blowout, gotten waxed in all the right places (*wink*) and now you’re ready to recreate your own John Legend video this Valentine’s Day!
Yup, the only thing that could make your V-Day “afterparty” better would be if the real John Legend was joining you. But since we can’t have that (he’s happily taken by model Chrissy Tiegen), we’re grabbing some vid-spiration from his insanely hot videos.
Break out the wine, add these songs to your Slow Jam playlist, and get ready to have one wild night courtesy of Mr. Legend.
And hey, nobody will blame you for accidentally fantasizing about John.
All of Me:
As if we weren’t already jealous enough of Chrissy Tiegen, the stunning model and John give us a performance that puts The Notebook to shame. Get inspired by this video filmed in black and white on Lake Como in Italy just days before the couple wed.
Fave Lyric: “You’re my end and my beginning. Even when I lose I’m winning.”
Tonight (Best You Ever Had) ft. Ludacris:
First, you get John Legend sitting shirtless on the edge of a bed, then cut to the baby blues of Michael Ealy with scenes out of Think Like A Man — and finally, cut to us laying on the floor hyperventilating. Ladies, this music video is so hot that we applaud you if you could even make it to Ludacris’ smooth rap section.
Fave Lyrics: “I don’t wanna brag, but I’ll be the best you ever had.” (Prove it, John.)
No surprises here, this video begins with John shirtless in bed again (not that we’re complaining.) He then proceeds to date about 50 different girls (huh?) and tells them all to “save room for [his] love.” OK sure John, but are you saving room for our love? Your schedule seems to be pretty packed.
Fave Lyrics: “Knockin’ on your door just a little, it’s so cold outside tonight.
Let’s get a fire burning, oh I know I’ll keep it burning bright”
Valentine’s Day is the one day of the year that P.D.A is not only accepted but expected! So take a note from John and let the world see how in love you and your guy are. John recommends locations such as the fire escape, the restaurant you work at, or your mama’s house.
Fave Lyrics: “You know I love you when you’re loving me. Sometimes it’s better when it’s publicly.”
Sure we love us some naked John Legend in a bed. But nothing is sexier than the singer on a piano serenading us (and a live audience —minor details.) The only thing that could make this better is if he tore his shirt off at the end (sorry, we relapsed).
Fave Lyrics: “I still put you first. And we’ll make this thing work. But I think we should take it slow.”
