New Video: John Legend – ‘Penthouse Floor (ft. Chance The Rapper)’

Published: Thursday 12th Oct 2017 by Sam
John Legend continues to showcase the different shades of album ‘Darkness & Light’ with the release of new single ‘Penthouse Floor.’
Chance The Rapper joins JL on the jam, the video for which arrived moments ago.
Narrative driven, the visual  sees the singer take on the role of a hotel’s ’employee of the month.’ Working a shift during a Black Lives Matter protest, he tries to  bring about unity in a divided United States.
Speaking on the clip, Legend said:
“With the chorus of going to the penthouse floor, we were thinking about upward mobility, and thinking about escape. The more I sat with the song as I was making the record, I wanted to have more attention in the song where I was thinking about not just upward mobility and escaping, but also thinking about what it means to come from humble beginnings like I come from, a blue collar family, where people that are often ignored and forgotten about, and to elevate to more rarified air like I am now but to not forget about where you come from. And to use your power and status to uplift people and shine a light on places where we come from. That is what the song lyrically evolved to and that is what the video represents.”

    i loved this song when it first came out, i feel like the video is a little late.

    Good message, average song. Not sure why they shot a video — song has been out a while and isn’t burning up any streaming platforms.

    John Legend is an obvious homosexual. Hilarious how he tries to use that flaky model as a beard.

    He was GREAT on tour last summer! This song in particular sounded better with a live arrangement. I’d pay to see him again.
