With Joseph Kahn directing, you’re pretty much guaranteed an epic music video. After all, he’s the creative genius behind “All The Lovers” (Kylie Minogue), “Womanizer,” (Britney Spears), “The Boy Is Mine” (Brandy & Monica) and Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space,” “Bad Blood,” and “Wildest Dreams” to name only a few of his memorable visuals. OneRepublic is the latest to enlist the 43-year-old South Korean director.

Wherever I Go” features fellow South Korean Kenneth Choi of Sons of Anarchy fame in the main role. He plays a miserable office worker suffering from the daily doldrums of his job. After seeing Ryan Teeder on a Budweiser ad on the subway, he begins to see things in a different light. Suddenly, he becomes the life of the party and transforms his workplace into a fun environment.. or does he? Watch the video below and find out.

“Wherever I Go” is a new single off the band’s yet-untitled fourth studio album, due out later. It’s a great track and will no doubt become an earworm. Tedder has a knack for crafting tracks you can’t forget.

How pimp ass does Idris Elba look in that Cruella de Vil-esque black and white coat above? Pimp-tacular for sure. The 43-year-old appears at the beginning of the visual, challenging viewers to show off their best moves.

As you would assume, there’s plenty of dance offs in the aptly-titled music video, “Dance Off.” One of which takes place at a wedding. It all now makes sense why Macklemore and his mother crashed one in Washington, D.C. the other day. It was all part of a master plan.

“Dance Off” is the latest track off their album This Unruly Mess I’ve Made. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis kick off their North American tour starting May 25 in Vancouver.

Check out their visual below directed by Jason Koenig and Lewis. If you love a hot set of buns, definitely watch the part where Macklemore walks in the gym change room. It’s a full moon and then some 😉

Not really sure why Justin Timberlake released another music video for “Can’t Stop The Feeling.” Perhaps, his team thought it would be a good idea to help buoy the single’s streaming numbers. Not that it needed the help. The song is already a smash hit. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Like the previous clip, this one features people getting their groove on to the catchy track. However, this time around most of the people dancing are random folks and not celebrities lending their voices for the Dreamworks animated film, Trolls.

Personally, I like the star-studded version much better. If you love, however, watching JT eat at a diner, grocery shop and dance with strangers, then the Mark Romanek-directed clip is for you. Watch it below.

Coldplay Debuts Trippy ‘Up & Up’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

Chris Martin and company may not put on the most riveting Super Bowl Half-time show, but they certainly know how to deliver a thoroughly entertaining music video. The special effects in their trippy new visual are some of the best I’ve seen in recent memory.

“The video is a poignant, surrealist montage that alludes to contemporary issues. It also features racehorses galloping on water and a popcorn-spouting volcano.” – video official press release

Co-directed by Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia, the surreal clip features members of Coldplay as gigantic figures in naturalistic scenarios, i.e. Martin using a mountain range as a huge lounger. Another favorite moment features a man high jumping over the National Mall in Washington, D.C. It truly is a fantastic visual and deserves a look.

Up & Up” is the third official single off the British group’s latest album, A Head Full of Dreams. Watch the music video below.

Albeit baby steps, Ariana Grande is definitely making an effort to change up her look for her new era. She let her hair down to show off wavy tresses for her “Dangerous Woman” music video and now, she curls her hair even more for her latest visual. If you’re a fan of her signature high-pony though, don’t fret, it pops up here too.

Leading up to the release of her new album, out this Friday, the 22-year-old chanteuse has been quite generous sharing tracks from her LP. “Greedy,” which she previewed recently is absolutely fantastic. Definitely check it out, if you haven’t already done so.

Another standout is her Lil Wayne-assisted collabo “Let Me Love You.” After teasing screen caps last week, Grande premiered the entire clip exclusively via Apple Music Sunday night. She channels her inner sex kitten for the sultry clip directed by Grant Singer. Check it out below.

RuPaul crowns her latest drag superstar tonight on the Season 8 finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race. If I was a betting man, my money would be on Kim Chi to take it all home, even though I’m rooting for Naomi Smalls. You can tell Mama Ru has been a fan of Kim Chi all season long.

As in previous years, Ru enlisted the season’s final three to appear in one of her music videos. Kim Chi, Naomi Smalls and Bob the Drag Queen serve major neon realness for the aptly titled, “The Realness.”

No disrespect to the ladies and RuPaul, but IMHO, Willie Gomez steals the show. Britney Spears is one lucky lady for dancing with him on a regular basis for her Vegas residency. Watch him put his dancing skills and muscular physique on display below. He’s definitely poetry in motion.

The second I heard Nao, I immediately became a fan. With each new track she releases, I’ve become even more obsessed. Her silky smooth vocals are absolutely heavenly.

I’m not the only one in love with Nao. It appears Ariana Grande is a fan as well. She recently faced plagiarism claims that “Be Alright” heavily borrowed from Mura Musa’s “Firefly” featuring Nao.

The 28-year-old rising British talent recently premiered the accompanying visual for “Fool To Love.” She doesn’t appear anywhere in the clip, unless of course, she’s the invisible force giving actor Ashley Walters an ass-whooping. Dude is getting tossed around like a rag doll all over a mid-century-designed apartment. Check out the clip below.

Previously, Nick Jonas revealed that his breakup with former Miss USA Olivia Culpo served as inspiration for his album, Last Year Was Complicated. If their relationship was anything as dramatic as shown in Jonas’ new clip, “Chainsaw,” it’s probably a good thing they broke. Probably spared them plenty of broken dishes based on the video.

“It became very clear what it was going to be about, after the breakup,” he told OUT. “I just dove in headfirst and wrote about all of it. I think it was the most meaningful relationship I’ve ever been in.”

Directed by Luke Monaghan, Nick reminisces about his ex, played by Victoria’s Secret Angel Sara Sampaio, in the visual. He walks around his adorably-furnished cabin that they shared together. When he’s done walking down memory lane, he decides to take a chainsaw to a sofa before torching down the entire place. I guess that’s one way of getting closure. Check out the clip below.
