John Legend releases 'Penthouse Floor' music video

John Legend’s new “Penthouse Floor” video has a powerful message about inclusion and getting along.

In the video featuring Chance the Rapper, the 38-year-old plays a waiter named John Stephens – which also happens to be his real name – at an upscale hotel restaurant with all white patrons, including one wearing a red “Make It Great” hat – a nod to Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hats.

Outside of the restaurant, rallies flood the streets with protestors holding “Black Lives Matter” and “The Future is Female” signs.

John then throws a party in the Presidential Suite of the hotel for all the workers and protestors, but then is greeted by the white diners – which he allows in for the party.

“Penthouse Floor” is off Legend’s latest album Darkness and Light.
