I professed my love for John Legend's "Green Light" months ago, and the video featuring the crooner and Andre 3000 is finally here. But do I love the video? Actually, not so much. I mean, it's not bad, but if I see one more video of a party scene filled with mystery meat women and strategically placed bottles of liquor, I'm gonna scream. The beginning, with a frustrated John Legend slamming his piano shut after singing "Ordinary People" for what I assume to be the gazillionth time was cute, but then the video quickly slipped into been-there-done-that territory only to get interesting again around the three-minute mark thanks to a routine from Andre 3000 and some dancers in a cocktail glass. And I don't know about anybody else, but I was seriously wishing for John Legend to join the party people and shake his money maker. Maybe next time, John--that goes for the dancing and making a truly cutting edge video.
