John Legend is treating his fans to an early glimpse at his newest music video Minefields.
The 42-year-old EGOT crooner has teamed up with Canadian-Moroccan singer Faouzia, 20, for the emotional love ballad, with the video set for release on Thursday, January 28.
A dramatic visual performance to go with the track, the collaborators are seen singing in an empty field against a mystical sky.

Another banger for the All Of Me singer who has become synonymous with emotive melodies, the video harnesses that energy.
A song about two lovers that are separated by a great distance, the pair are seen performing separately in the vast landscape before seeming to unite.
The video spans throughout the day as Legend sits at his piano in a dress shirt and jacket as the sun rises.
‘These minefields keeping me from you, what I risk to be close to you,’ the duo harmonize.

Though a star on the rise in comparison to legend, the magnitude of Faouzia’s star quality is abundantly clear based on her tone of voice.
She is seen longingly wandering in an ethereal white dress as specks of light flood the frame.
The song also features Charlie Puth on piano though he is not seen in the music video.
Despite providing only 20 seconds of the video on his social media, it was still enough to garner a lot of anticipation.

Supportive wife Chrissy Teigen gushed, ‘My bear. What is it like to be such a bear,’ as she gave him the endearing pet name.
A source of inspiration for virtually all of his songs, the pair most recently appeared in the music video for his song Wild over the summer.
Both Legend and Faouzia have been overjoyed with the song’s reception and it already boasts over 10M streams on Spotify.
A notable track for Faouzia after acting as both songwriter and vocalist, she spoke to Fashion Magazine in December and spoke about the collaboration, sharing it was originally a solo piece.

‘We had intended for it to be a solo song but then we started to think, “what if there was a big, beautiful male vocal on it?” We started to name names and John Legend’s name came up, so we reached out to him. We didn’t expect him to come back so soon and to love the song. He sent his vocals in and we all fell in love with it, it was so beautiful.’
She continued to describe working with Legend as a ‘pleasure,’ while adding that the whole thing was done virtually.
‘John recorded on top of my vocals, and what I really loved about what he did was he made it sound very much like a proper duet.’
‘It’s a beautiful mixture of our voices where we both are in harmony. I feel so honoured that he’s on the song.’
