What a wonderful week it was when it came to new music videos. The light may have been on Southern California for the last two weeks, and for good reason, but now things are shifting back to a more global perspective. Rostam certainly shined the glow onto New York City with his new video for "Gwan". Father John Misty, however, was more interested in taking us into an entire different reality with "Total Entertainment Forever".
Goldfrapp preferred to have her dancers grasp for the light in her directorial debut, which is dark and edgy as the "Systemagic" track is itself. Jeremih joined up with Chris Brown and Big Sean took us out on the street where each try their hand and picking up a girl walking down the street. And that was only the beginning for a week filled with stunning new eye candy.
Here are our favorites:
Goldfrapp — "Systemagic"
In Goldfrapp's video for Systemagic directed by none other than Alison Goldfrapp herself, we find dancers trapped in a dark and dusky space reaching for the light. It's the first video Alison has directed, and let's just say that we are not surprised at all with the stunning results.
Rostam — "Gwan"
We've all seen snow globes of New York City before, but in "Gwan", Rostan takes inside his. Like the song, every frame of the video is precious and beautiful. Rostam guides the camera throughout the Big Apple showing its delicate beauty, without ever making it seem too boastful.
Father John Misty — "Total Entertainment Forever"
"Total Entertainment Forever" is as wild as it is imaginative. Whoever's idea it was to get Joshua Tillman, Macaulay Culkin, and Adam Green together on the set of Adam Green's Aladdin we commend you. We won't even bother describing the acid-colored result, just watch it yourself.
Jeremih — "I Think Of You" [ft. Chris Brown & Big Sean]
You might think that Jeremih, Chris Brown, and Big Sean have their game on lock, and there wouldn't be too many girls turning them down. But that's just not the case in the video for "I Think Of You", all try their best but end up alone. We're not gonna start feeling bad for them tough.
Tinashe — "Flame"
Tinashe literally sets things on fire in her video for "Flame". The clip follows the singer and her man, and it all seems good in the beginning, but things certainly don't stay that way. It all comes to a fiery end.
