Music video[edit]

Boyz II Men members had taken a different approach to taping the music video for "The Color of Love". Each member taped his own segment of the video with a separate director in a different country with the purpose of capturing the color of the native people. Nathan headed to Accra, Ghana with directors Benny Boom and Little X. Wanya headed to San Juan, Puerto Rico to work with Chris Robinson. Shawn, currently in Tokyo, Japan, had been teamed with Hype Williams. And Michael visited Jaipur, India to collaborate with Little X, who edited the entire piece.

Antonio "L.A." Reid, Arista Records president and CEO, said that he had never been involved with a video project more ambitious. "Boyz II Men have always maintained a certain mood with their music, and that couldn't be better reflected than with the theme of this clip--unity and brotherhood, a multi-cultural celebration in these difficult times", he said via a statement. "There is no better group to pull it off than these four guys".[4]
