John Legend Releases New Video For “Wild” Featuring Chrissy Teigen
Multi-platinum, 11-time GRAMMY Award-winner John Legend today released his stunning new video for his song “Wild,” which features a starring role by none other than Chrissy Teigen. Beautifully shot in Mexico, the video is visually enraptured by the powerful and soulful voice and music of Legend, while sharing the modern-day love story of Legend and Teigen and their beautiful growing family. The song, which features Grammy-Award winning guitarist Gary Clark Jr, is from Legend’s critically-acclaimed new album BIGGER LOVE, available now everywhere.
The video is directed by Nabil Elderkin, who Legend first met at a photo shoot at the beginning of his career forming a longtime friendship and creative partnership. Nabil (Dua Lipa “Don’t Start Now,” Frank Ocean “Swim Good,” Kendrick Lamar “DNA”) then introduced Legend to Teigen on the first music video he directed for Legend. “Wild” is the second music video Nabil, Legend and Teigen have done together since the romantically iconic “All of Me,” which has racked up more than 1.7 BILLION views. The “Wild” video beautifully captures the next chapter of their family.
Legend was just named the Music Mogul of the Year, gracing the cover of Variety Magazine this week in this special issue. Click HERE to read how Legend built an empire with purpose.

Pitchfork says the album, “…bursts with positive energy” and Rolling Stone says the album “shows off the emerging subtlety of his musical craft and social messaging.”
