JAY Z & BEYONCE - RUN
Will it seem pathetically contrarian if I say I'm not that into music's power couple?
Well, I'm not, so there.
This video is basically a commercial for their upcoming tour, I believe.
It's like a trailer for a gangster movie, and a bunch of Hollywood stars such as Sean Penn, Jake Gyllenhaal and Blake Lively make cameos. It looks very expensive. Congrats, guys.
LEA MICHELE - ON MY WAY
You probably know the US singer-actress as Rachel from the TV series Glee. She looks like a nerd, but hot.
The lyrics here are kind of depressing, about how she's caught in the rain, too drunk to drive and trying to push some dude away.
But the video undercuts the darkness of the song because it features a beach party with a bunch of sexy kids.
Doesn't really make sense, Michele. Try harder.
THE BAND PERRY - CHAINSAW
These guys have one of the worst names ever, worse than Hoobastank.
Anyway, this is a US country group with a female singer who reminds me of Taylor Swift.
The video follows the story of the song, which is about a girl who chainsaws a tree that her ex-boyfriend carved their initials into.
Pretty violent imagery. Swift would approve, I'm sure.
