MIA’s “Go Off,” from her forthcoming album AIM, puts jaded-sounding, almost robotic vocals over a feisty Skrillex beat with Blaqstarr, tough for the club but as ever really makes you think.
Scottish synth pop band Chvrches released its video for “Bury It” today, a sweet sunset-toned fantasy of telekinesis and flight. Created by the band’s artistic collaborator, Jamie McKelvie, and animated by Mighty Nice, the video is set to a remix featuring Paramore’s Hayley Williams.
PARTYNEXTDOOR—a name you have to SCREAM when you say it—released a promo video for Kylie Jenner’s lip kit on Snapchat.
In good news for animal lovers and slightly less good news for Leona Lewis’s pop career, the singer has released the very grammatically confusing “(We All Are) Looking For Home” in partnership with the organizations Stop Yulin Forever and the Vanderpump Dog Foundation. The “charity track” is meant to generate…
Dej Loaf released three videos today (for songs from her April mixtape All Jokes Aside), all of which have a common narrative about persistence through shady people and obstacles she’s faced.
Justin Bieber is a happy man. But like any human being, he’s also sad sometimes. Nowhere is this more evident than in his new video for “Company.”
“Put me out of my misery,” as a chorus, brings to mind merciful euthanization. But in Gwen Stefani’s estimation on “Misery,” a truly catchy song, it’s more like analogizing her lover’s bod to, like, methadone, insofar that she passionately informs him that he’s “like drugs! you’re like drugs! to me!”
In the video for “In Common,” a gracefully blithe summer song about finding comfort in your shared messiness with someone, Alicia Keys goes for a bare, black-and-white aesthetic in the form of interlocked bodies, impressive pop-lockers, bone breakers (very FKA twigs reminiscent) and a little girl doing the Nae Nae.
Justin Timberlake (aka DAD) and all his dancing friends catch major happy-dance vibes in the video for his Trolls soundtrack single “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” which sounds like a commercial jingle for Doublemint, the Gap or Best Buy.
Hey pals, we made it! Now it’s playtime.
In what was either a very successful marketing tactic, or a very ironic twist for a song whose lyrics include “I can’t help loving myself,” Meghan Trainor’s video for “Me Too” has been released following her claims that the original video had her body not looking quite right.
Grimes has just released the music video for “California,” the third track from Art Angels to be set to visuals after the dual video “Flesh Without Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream” and “Kill V. Maim.” Directed by Grimes and her brother Mac Boucher, the video draws on the same tensions as the song itself: whimsy and…
Jennifer Lopez’s new video for “Ain’t Your Mama” includes the voices of Gloria Steinem, Patricia Arquette and Hillary Clinton speaking about women’s equality. And, according to a new report, it also includes a good deal of product placement—much of which was needed to support Lopez’s expensive vision for the video.
Jennifer Lopez promotes wage equality, confronts workplace sexual harassment and rebels against domesticity in the most overwrought way possible in the music video for her feminist anthem “Ain’t Your Mama.”
After watching the video for Rita Wilson’s “Forgiving Me, Forgiving You” for the first time, I pulled my chair closer to my computer and clicked play again. Once it ended, I rolled even closer and listened a second time. By listen number three, my trembling body was so close to the screen that my stomach was being…
After spotting a link for a new T-Pain music video for his song “Laugh n Dab,” I was ready to watch him, you know, laughing and dabbing. So I’m bopping along to this catchy song about haters, thinking, Aw, T-Pain why don’t more people appreciate you...when, wait... WHAT.
Maybe releasing “Dammn Baby” as her latest single was a cute nod to the fact that she cancelled her world tour in order to have a kid or two, but its existence in this video is purely motivated by the fundamentals, the driving force that Janet Jackson is the greatest of all time. Which is to say, she doesn’t need…
I’m two months behind on Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home,” off their forthcoming album 7/27, but better late than never, I’d say. This gem is both an homage to music videos past, and a testament to where the genre should be headed going forward.
Chloe x Halle, wildly talented teen sisters who Beyoncé signed to her Parkwood Entertainment label after their baby years in show biz, are already putting forth their bona fides. In “Drop,” their debut and an utter banger of a single, the duo combines operatic, haunting verses with strong and folk-influenced choruses…
