There were plenty of great music videos last year, in all genres. It seems, however, that hip-hop and R&B won out this year. These are my ten favorite music videos of 2015.
Carly Rae Jepsen’s “I Really Like You” is the best thing Tom Hanks was in in 2015. If anyone needed proof of how wonderfully charming Hanks can be, “I Really Like You” video provided it.
FKA twigs’s “Glass & Patron” features FKA twigs giving birth to colorful silk ribbons. So, you know, pretty par for the course here. The costumes and choreography are both excellent, showcasing twigs’s impeccable eye for the odd.
Grimes’s “REALiTi” (which she herself directed) may not have much going on in terms of actual content, but every frame of this music video pops with the same vibrant color that characterizes her music.
