You’ve heard me say it many times… “Music and Fashion are so intertwined”. Fashion is more than clothes or accessories, just like music is more than just a song.
Therefore, as a huge “music head”, I don’t just listen to music I like to experience it . Not just the broad idea of listening to it, I’m talking all of the parts (beats, verses, bass, verses, chorus, etc.) are just as crucial to me. The most common platform in which sound and imagery unite is within music videos.
I recently have had the song “Tonight” on repeat and wanted to share it with you. I originally heard this song while searching for new songs on YouTube, and John Legend was premiering it during a small concert. I fell in love with it at that very moment! The smooth drumming and cymbal flow, then a strong beat, completed by John singing the beginning verse captures you before 5 seconds into the song. I’m a fan of both John Legend and Ludacris and was very excited to find out they collaborated on the actual version that would be released for the Think Like A Manmovie soundtrack (in theaters on April 20th!). I have also always enjoyed Luda’s flow and playfully naughty lyrics he brings to R&B songs.
Ladies… As you can see John is not only confident in his singing and styling capabilities… And as for Ludacris, he has never been shy with his style choices or lyrical content!
The new video premiered March 13th and to my surprise I found I had something else to love about it…the styling of both gents was as great as the song!
Although at various performances and appearances I think John Legend’s styling has been on point, with great tailored suits and casual looks, I have also thought at times that the fit of his pants usually do not leave much to the imagination.
As for Ludacris his style evolution has been one for the history books. In the beginning of his career he had the typical southern rapper look and it has evolved into a more stylized look that is all his own.
Want to see how we styled their looks for the video? Check out John’s look here and Luda’s look here.
