John Legend and Chrissy Teigen first met on the set of his music video for "Stereo" back in 2007 and tied the knot in a lavish Italian wedding in September 2013. While it's common knowledge that John wrote "All of Me" for Chrissy, the R&B crooner was making sweet music for his wife long before the track came about. Remember "Good Morning" and "The Beginning"? Yep, you can thank Chrissy for those. In 2014, Chrissy even tweeted about her contributions to the music industry, writing, "2 grammy noms for @johnlegend no one has congratulated me for being the inspiration behind 'all of me' without me there is no all of me."

Kendrick Lamar just released the “DNA.” music video, which features Academy Award nominated actor Don Cheadle. The song hails from the rapper’s fourth studio album, “Dman,” which dropped April 14. The release follows the Compton rapper’s acclaimed third studio album “To Pimp a Butterfly,” which dropped in 2015.
The clip opens with the “House of Lies” actor portraying a mean cop who is about to interrogate the rapper using a lie detector. After going into trance, he becomes an alternative manifestation of Lamar and starts lip-syncing the lyrics of the song. When the rapper is freed, he goes into the street where his homies await for him. The rest of the video includes a group of women going wild in a car, and one scene even shows Lamar in a coffin.

When John Legend's international hit "All of Me" was released in 2015, it quickly became one of the most popular (read: overplayed) wedding songs of that year. There's no surprise as to why: the lyrics, which were inspired by and written for Legend's wife, Chrissy Teigen, are romantic without being sappy and would soften the blackest of hearts. Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" also topped the list of favorite reception songs, but much like Sheeran, Legend actually has a handful of other sweet, sentimental tunes that are perfect for playing during any part of your big day.
