The xx, Tove Lo, Beyonce Stun In Top Music Videos Of The Week - December 2
Thu, 01 Dec 2016 15:19:45
It took almost 11 full months, but these past seven days may have made for the best week in music videos of the year, or at least so far. Justin Bieber teamed up with DJ Snake a released the neon-lit, Bonnie and Clyde-inspired video for "Let Me Love You", which appears on DJ Snake's latest album, Encore. Meanwhile, Tove Lo continued to show how desires can turn in trouble real quick in "True Disaster".
Anohni has not been shy all year, and she doesn't hold any punch on her video for "Marrow". It follows the same path as the videos for "Crisis" and "I Don't Love You Anymore", but "Marrow" features New York City artist and feminist Lorraine O'Grady in a single shot, mouthing the words to the track. Meanwhile, The xx explored West Texas in "On Hold", exploring a variety of relationships. And that was only the beginning for a week filled with stunning new music videos… and we haven't even mentioned Beyonce, yet.
Here are our favorites:
Justin Bieber, DJ Snake - "Let Me Love You"
From Bonnie and Clyde-style adventure to young boy and old man playing a video game together, Justin Bieber and DJ Snake's video for "Let Me Love You" certainly covers a lot of ground. It's a new noir flick and computerized adventure all thrown into one.
Tove Lo - "True Disaster"
Tove Lo just dropped her newest album Lady Wood a few weeks ago, but we've had no doubt all year that the Cool Girl-singer was one you should never take your eyes off of. She's certainly keen on going after temptations, sometimes to disastrous effect.
Anohni - "Marrow"
The video for Anohni's "Marrow" follows in the vein of "Crisis" and "I Don't Love You Anymore". The single shot of Lorraine O'Grady is a powerful statement, the kind Anohni has been making all year.
The xx - "On Hold"
For those who are unaware, Marfa, Texas is somewhat of an art bastion in way West Texas. It sounds like an unlikely place for such a scene, and for an English band to make their newest music video. But that's what The xx do best, unveil beauty in the least suspecting places.
Beyoncé - "All Night"
Is there anything that needs to be said about a new Beyonce music video? Just watch.
