John Legend Stars in Chevy Commercial

Grammy-winning R&B musician John Legend is featured in a new commercial for the 2014 Chevrolet Impala, along with Legend’s new song “Made to Love.”

The commercial, which aired last week during Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals, shows Legend struggling for songwriting inspiration, only to find it behind the wheel of a 2014 Impala. The commercial draws in part from Legend’s own automobile history: his first car was a Chevy, and he is an active supporter of the United States automobile industry.

“I see a lot of parallels between the renaissance of a classic brand like the Impala and what I try to do as an artist,” Legend said. “I strive to make my music innovative while grounded in a classic style. The Impala is a true classic, yet its understated elegance appeals to me today.”
