Thu, 22 Dec 2016 17:44:00
One might think that artists, like many people, would spend the week heading into the Holidays lounging, buying presents, and generally taking it easy, but that wasn't the case. Instead, many musicians decided to share gifts with their fans in the form of new music videos. Rae Sremmurd, hot off the success of "Black Beatles" [ft. Gucci Mane], decided to make the most of what has been an amazing year for the duo and released a video for "Now That I Know". Denzel Curry also took a look back at his highly successful year and released a remix of his Rick Ross featured track "Knotty Head".
The trio of Maxwell, Miranda, Parsley have clearly been in the spirit since summer - as they told us in our interview with them discussing Catskill Christmas. This week they shared a video for "Too Many Santas", one of the records many outstanding tracks. Kings of Leon debuted a the creepy video for "Find Me". And that was only the beginning for a week that artists filled with video gifts for their fans.
Here are our favorites:
Rae Sremmurd — "Now That I Know"
Rae Sremmurd reached the viral apex when Jacksonville high school students played their track "Black Beatles" [ft. Gucci Mane] in the background of what became the Mannequin Challenge sensation. Now we get to see the duo in a more somber light in the video for "Now That I Know".
Maxwell, Miranda, Parsley — "Too Many Santas"
Maxwell, Miranda, Parsley are able to get into the Christmas spirit at almost any moment - as they have for the past three summers as the recorded Catskill Christmas. Some need a little bit more of an occasion, and what better a time than New York's SantaCon.
Denzel Curry — "Knotty Head (Remix)" [ft. AJ Tracey & Rick Ross]
The Rick Ross featuring "Knotty Head" was already a hit for Denzel Curry, but that hasn't stopped him from releasing a remix with AJ Tracey where he storms the streets of London. We caught up with him to discuss Imperial.
Kings of Leon — "Find Me"
Picking up from where their previous video for "Waste a Moment" left off, Kings of Leon's video for "Find Me" explores a string of disappearance in a small town. It's all a rather scary situation, and not for those looking for the usual Christmas cheer.
Maggie Rogers — "Dog Years"
It really was a breakout year for Maggie Rogers. She reached audiences the world over when she left Pharrell speechless with her debut song "Alaska". She since followed up with "Dog Years", and this week released the summer camp nostalgia inducing video for the track.
