In this Helmi-directed clip, Kelela sways while her locs grow, forcing her clothes off her body and winding their away around her. In terms of existing media, it’s reminiscent of “…

Kehlani doesn’t appear in the video for “Cigarettes & Cush,” her collaboration with Stormzy on his excellent album Gang Signs & Prayer. But it’s fine, because London’s finest needed to live out this dramatic weed parable, in which he plays a plant kingpin whose lady-cop girlfriend saves him so they can drive away and…
As expected, Taylor Swift is going hard with her good-girl-gone-bad slash Madonna-phase narrative in the video for her redemption song “Look What You Made Me Do,” which premiered during Sunday night’s MTV VMAs, hosted by Katy Perry.
Because Katy Perry’s aesthetic for this album cycle is doing way too much yet, at the same time, not quite enough, her just-released video for “Swish Swish” is the perfect Witness-era artifact.

Charli XCX released a music video for her new single “Boys” on Wednesday and in the time since, I have not been the same. For one, I must contend with the fact that I now know what Charlie Puth looks like—and that I think he’s attractive, god help me. I must also grapple with my (totally plausible) queer-girl…
Selena Gomez—viewed through Petra Collins’s hazy, sparkling lens—plays a housewife going through some shit in the video for “Fetish,” and she’s sexy, sad and a little confused about how to use an eyelash curler.
If you’re looking for a weekend jam, direct yourself in the direction of Blake Shelton’s 2016 collaboration with the Oak Ridge Boys, “Doing It to Country Songs.” What’s it about? Let’s look at some of the lyrics:

Many of you were too young to have experienced TLC’s colorful “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg” video in all its glory. But if you were around, the aesthetics of the video for their poolside jam “Way Back”—a song from their Kickstarter funded self-titled album—will look familiar.
