They Got It Right: 10 Songs About Love That Were Made Into Beautiful Videos

- By

I Want You – Common

Director: Kerry Washington

This is the kind of video that amplifies Common’s sex symbol status. Kerry Washington directs this video where an old flame obsesses over her past as her ex tries to move forward in his new life without her and with new girl Alicia Keys.  It’s a very luscious video with a very shiny veneer, complete with celebrity appearances from Kanyeezy and Serena Williams. It’s the lustrous veneer of Common’s high life juxtaposed with Kerry Washington’s seemingly sloppy character which really makes this work.
