Ozzy Osbourne's Video for 'Ordinary Man' Shows Black Sabbath Singer Reflecting on His Life on the Big Screen

On Tuesday, March 10, 2020, Ozzy Osbourne released the video of his title track “Ordinary Man” from his new album. The clip shows the star watching his life play out on the big screen.

Osbourne’s new song features Elton John, who is part of the vocals and plays the piano in the track. The new song shows the singer sitting in a movie theater watching a film about his life through a projector.

The track shows his childhood home in Birmingham, England. The hometown also happens to be the same place he formed Black Sabbath in 1968.

#OZZY's first new solo album in ten years, the critically acclaimed ORDINARY MAN (@EpicRecords), is the #1 rock album in the world, topping multiple charts in its triumphant first week of release. In the U.S., the album entered the @Billboard charts at #3 on the Top 200 chart, #2 on the Top Album Sales chart (making it his highest charting album ever on the tally, surpassing his No. 3 peak with Black Rain) and #1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart. This marks OZZY's fifth consecutive Top 5 entry and sixth Top 10 entry on the Top 200 chart. It also places ahead of his most recent offering, SCREAM, which arrived at #4 in 2010. Worldwide, ORDINARY MAN has entered the charts in the Top Ten in seven countries making it the highest charting album of OZZY's career. It debuted at #3 on the U.K. chart, breaking OZZY's previous peak on the charts 40 years ago for Blizzard of Ozz (which peaked at #7). OZZY also demolished his highest chart position in Australia, debuting at #4 and cracking the Top 10 there for the first time in his career.
