John Legend – “All of Me”

This probably comes as no surprise to anyone, but John Legend’s stunning ballad, “All of Me” was written for and dedicated to his wife, Chrissy Teigen (although at the time it was written and released they were not yet married). Over the years, this couple has shown the world that they are as much a power couple as any other Hollywood love story.

“All of Me” is a shining example of just how much they love each other, as John Legend sings lines like, “’cause all of me loves all of you. Love your curves and all your edges, all your perfect imperfections.” Here is a love song like no other, and it is truly powerful.

Over the years, Legend has talked about the song and its meaning, sharing insight into the lyrics. According to the singer, this is a song about “things that balance each other out,” which makes perfect sense, as this is definitely a couple that gives each other balance.

Plus, we can’t forget that the music video even featured Chrissy Teigen and featured real footage from their Italian wedding. The entire purpose of the video was to represent the couple and their romance and when you put all of that together with the stunning lyrics, it really is a no-brainer to realize that Teigen is the sole inspiration of this love song.

Listening to “All of Me” is like hearing a love letter that really should be private, but the rest of the world is being given a glimpse at.
