John Legend is gearing up to release what looks to be his most cinematic video yet.
In a newly unwrapped trailer, the 40-year-old trumpets the arrival of new visual ‘Preach.’
It’s not been made immediately clear whether the gospel-tinged song (which he’s been performing sporadically over the last few months) is the lead offering from his forthcoming album. But what is certain is that he’s seizing the moment to make a major statement. Case in point the caption attached:
“I can’t just sit and hope, I can’t just sit and pray…”
Ahead of its February 1st premiere, check out the teaser for ‘Preach’ below…
News of the video comes on the heels of Legend’s widely praised appearance on Lifetime‘s ‘Surviving R. Kelly,’ where he called for justice for the women accusing the singer of sexual abuse.
