The soulful crooner's new video is an artistic rendition of nude bodies making love to his new R'n'B tune.
After unveiling a breast exposure-speckled "Who Do We Think We Are" clip last May, Grammy Award-winning R'n'B singer John Legend premieres another ultra sexy music video with "Made to Love". Although the four-minute, sexually-charged video features nude bodies, the treatment is quite artistic, using paint splash and distorted screen effects to ward off any possible indecent exposure.
The simple and straightforward approach of the generally black-and-white-themed visuals fits the mid-tempo R'n'B ballad in the sense that it features down-to-earth lyrics with just a repetitive hook that rings of the song's title. But the tune is brought to life by Legend's soulful rendition further accentuated by New Zealand recording artist Kimbra's vocal instrumental.
"Made to Love" is the second single to be released from Legend's upcoming fourth studio album "Love in the Future", due on September 3 after lead single "Who Do We Think We Are". Rap mogul Kanye West serves as the album's executive producer, with Legend and Dave Tozer co-producing the tracks featuring Rick Ross, Stacy Barthe and Seal.
In support of his forthcoming album, Legend will go on his "Made to Love" tour, which kicks off on October 20 at the Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. Serving as opening act for the crooner is R'n'B songstress Tamar Braxton of the group The Braxtons.
