Video: Benny Benassi f/ John Legend – ‘Dance the Pain Away’

John Legend

John Legend searches for an escape in the video for “Dance the Pain Away,” his EDM collaboration with Benny Benassi. Directed by Cameron Duddy, the black-and-white clip takes fans on a scenic drive along L.A.’s Pacific Coast Highway, with Benassi behind the wheel of a classic Porsche 550 Spyder.

The G.O.O.D. Music crooner and French DJ debuted the record live at Coachella in April. Legend originally wrote the song as a guitar ballad for his upcoming album Love in the Future, due September 3.

Set your weekend off right with their dance-floor-ready collabo.

  3. Nope

    Benni could have kept all of that, from the autotune on John’s vocals to the typical edm beat.

    I know this isn’t the musical direction John is going in but his voice does not mesh well with an edm beat.

    Made to Love is one of the best R&B songs I have heard in a minute.

    This song is a mess and shouldn’t have been released.

    @Nope, I agree. John’s voice is too soulful for the EDM stuff. I didn’t like this at all.

    @Kyle, Took the words out of my mouth-Dont like it at all! Hopefully the ballad version is better,he shouldnt experiment with dj’s,he doesnt need it and doesnt fit him well.
