John Legend Embraces the Beauty of All Women in "You & I" Music Video

Pin It
John Legend's latest music video leaves behind the glorification of women that we often see in music videos today.

Instead, the video for his single, "You & I (Nobody in the World)," shows off the natural beauty of women from all walks of life, shapes and sizes. The over 4-minute clip is a tribute to what makes us all unique, beautiful and strong, and it's particularly moving.

The video starts with John's model wife Chrissy Teigen putting on earrings in front of a mirror, and transitions to more women looking at themselves in mirrors, from the likes of a cute curly-haired little girl to a cancer survivor crying as she takes off her bra and reveals her mastectomy scars. Even transgendered Orange is the New Black actor Laverne Cox makes an appearance.

In her cameo, Laverne walks in to a room in full make-up, sits in front of a mirror and takes her make-up off, still smiling at her reflection.

The video is fitting for the lyrics, which say, "You fix your make-up just so, guess you don't know that you're beautiful. Try on every dress that you own. You were fine in my eyes, a half hour ago. If your mirror won't make it any clearer I'll be the one to let you know out of all of the girls, you're my one and only girl. Ain't nobody in the world tonight."

We can't lie. We teared up watching this.
