Check out the new music video for John Legend’s single “A Good Night,” featuring BloodPop.
Legend was directed in the video by Mishka Kornai, who shot it with a Google Pixel 2 phone.
On Thursday night, Legend explained the reasoning behind shooting it with a smartphone at a Los Angeles event, saying, “We thought it would be cool to shoot it on Pixel because the camera is amazing and we were fascinated by the idea of using a smartphone to film a big budget music video, a video that brings the smartphone dating experience to life.”
As for the inspiration of the song, John shared, “The song and the video are about a magical night where you meet someone you immediately connect with and can envision a future together. You're single, dating, probably using all the apps people use now (I haven't dated since the advent of Tinder, etc, but it's a fascinating era in romance), and not finding someone special. But one night—maybe caught up in the music or the drinks or whatever—you meet someone that changes everything. That's a good night!”
