In the new video for the song, “Kill V. Maim,” from her album Art Angels, Grimes leads a group of subway-inhabiting vampire misfits in a futuristic dystopian city. What exactly inspired Grimes to write the tune? According to Rolling Stone, she described it as being from the perspective of Al Pacino in The Godfather:…
Here’s Rashida Jones’ video for her new single, “Flip and Rewind.” The video, which includes cameos from Jermaine Dupri and Tevin Campbell (among others), is a journey through notable 90s hip-hop and R&B videos. There are references to TLC and Boyz to Men, and Jones apparently used her own high- school dance crew in…
Bear with me, fetuses. It’s story time.
Seriously, Hollywood keeps making weird-ass fairytale movies. And they really ought to take a note from this insane new Taylor Swift video for “Out of the Woods,” which does for fairytales what her “Bad Blood” vid did for action movies.
Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow, Fergie, Colbie Caillat, Natasha Bedingfield, Sean Paul, Leona Lewis, Johnny Rzeznik, Krewella, Angelique Kidjo, Nicole Scherzinger, Kelsea Ballerini, Christina Grimmmie, Victoria Justice, and Q’orianka Kilcher are not going to let global warming win.
In her new video for her new single, “BB Talk,” part of her album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, Miley has reached peak Miley. A short career spent trying to shock the world into forgetting about Hannah Montana has led to Miley to this point: dressed like a baby, crawling on the floor, and sucking her toes.
Last week, M.I.A. released “Borders,” a rallying cry for the current refugee crisis. Today, she shared the song’s self-directed video, which shows the singer accompanying refugees as they scale barbed-wire fences, pack themselves on crowded boats and wade through the ocean during their journey.
David Bowie has released a sprawling and creeptastic video for “★,” a track off his upcoming album ★. Yes, he’s spelling “Blackstar” with a symbol because this kind of thing worked so well for Prince in the early ‘90s.
Have you been wondering where exactly the maybe-relationship between Blac Chyna and Future stands? Probably not, but the answer to our non-question has been answered with Future’s new video for “Rich Sex.”
Dark pop virtuoso Alex Winston, gearing up for the release of her second full-length album, just dropped a very fun slasher video for the title track from her recent EP, The Day I Died.
Missy Elliot has made her official return, and it is fucking excellent.
“Say Love” is my favorite song from the JoJo “tringle”—it’s a giant, barnstorming ballad, with a chorus that’s like JoJo calling corners, letting the melody swirl up into the wind—and now it’s got a video, which does a great service to the young women of America by illuminating the struggle of getting a guy with a…
Hello, it’s Adele, with her new single “Hello” and a moody, sepia-toned video. Opening shot: looking out a window filled with dead bugs. Welcome back, Adele!
On Monday night Drake released the video for “Hotline Bling”—his maybe inspired, maybe remixed take on D.R.A.M.’s “Cha Cha.” As he has rather consistently done for the past few years, Drake delivered in the most deliberately viral and Drake-y way: like a huge dork.
Is it sadistic that “Good Times,” the song of the summer, is finally blessed with an official video as we enter shitty October? As a seasonal work of art, it seems to ask us to mourn all we have lost—pools, sun, fun, happiness, rooftop jams, chill vibes—in the penultimate month before winter destroys us.
In the vast catalogue of inspirational Beyoncé songs, “Runnin’ (Lose It All)” is the track most suited for an Olympic bid, or at least the third stage on a FIFA blow-out (IRL or XBOX). A track by British producer Naughty Boy, it features Bey and man-singer Arrow Benjamin oozing a state of uplifting self-acceptance…
Yassou is a Bay Area art-pop band led by vocalist/bassist Lillie Bytheway Hoy, and we’re premiering the second video in their five-track EP/art project, for a song called “To Win/Youngblood.”
“Body On Me,” Rita Ora and Chris Brown’s ode to non-penetrative sex, has a video. This is good for Rita Ora and Chris Brown, as I (and presumably many others) had missed the song until now. It is, however, quite bad for me (and presumably many others) because the video is a wholly unsexy and grimy little thing that…
Chvrches has released the video for “Leave a Trace,” the second single from their upcoming album, Every Open Eye (out September 25).
