John Legend’s “Dope” music video. JID: Watch – VIBE.com
Multi-platinum recording artist John Legend has teamed up with rapper JID for the release of his new music video, “Dope,” the lead single from his upcoming untitled album.
The Christian Breslauer-directed video takes a nostalgic route with an eclectic and soulful party setting, where Legend performs freely and parties with friends, including JID
The caption sings, “She’s so dope / I wanna be her dope fiend, she showed me what drugs mean / She’s so dope / She can be my dope queen, we can make a scene of drugs (yeah).” JID raps, “The mighty medicine prescribed by the prettiest women/ You give me highs and lows but you kill me, baby/ You know I’m crazy, I had no ‘education’/ And at the Days Inn, I’m still chasing and chasing / To have that first taste again, it was amazing.
The track produced by Ian Kirkpatrick and Ryan Tedder follows Legend’s latest studio album A greater love which included the singles “Conversations in the Dark” and “Wild”. A greater love entered the Billboard 200 chart at No. 19 and also charted internationally. The EGOT artist teased the single at the 2022 iHeart Awards in March, where he gave a special piano performance in collaboration with the song’s co-writer Charlie Puth. “Dope” is the first single from his new musical house, Republic Records.
