As it’s getting warm out, you’re probably more tempted to go outside and enjoy the nice weather and even though we’re encouraging of such (fresh air!), we have a list of reasons to keep you indoors and on your computers.
Check out this list of hot new videos that you’ll want to blast on repeat while you dig out those shorts and sandals for the summer!
Miguel — Simple Things
R&B star Miguel recently contributed a song for the soundtrack to the hit TV show Girls and now he has a music video to go with the track, Simple Things. A crisp black-and-white clip that follows Miguel and a woman around Los Angeles, the video reflects its song title and revels in the simplicity of its surroundings.
Foster The People — Best Friend
You’ve got to give it to Foster The People because their music videos are always super elaborate and on-point, especially their latest clip for Best Friend. The video is a psychedelic mind-trip into the modelling world featuring warped body images that reflect more of a nightmare than a dream career.
Cazzette — Sleepless (Lyric video)
Last year, Swedish DJ duo Cazzette performed on our MMVA red carpet and definitely left an impression on us. Now, they’re back with a new track called Sleepless and we’re hooked. The bouncy dance beat combined with the Daft Punk-esque robo-voices make for a redux of last year’s megahit Get Lucky and let’s face it, everyone needs a good robotic jam every once in a while.
Austin Mahone — Shadow (Acoustic)
Last week, we saw Austin Mahone give his Mahomies lots of love in his music video for All I Ever Need, but he’s not done just yet. Mahone has released another video for an acoustic version of the track Shadow in which the pop star roams around England, greeting fans and taking selfies with them. What a sweetheart!
Shakira — La La La (Brazil 2014)
As we approach the 2014 FIFA World Cup, pop star Shakira is putting in her bid for this year’s anthem. Shakira has already put out a music video for La La La, but this new version is specifically for soccer fans, starring a number of players including her hunky boyfriend, Gerard Piqué!
Will.i.am feat Cody Wise — It’s My Birthday
Will.i.am and Cody Wise put their spin on social media culture with their latest music video for It’s My Birthday. In it, the two recreate a number of viral Vine videos in hopes of creating their very own viral video and you know what? We think they succeeded!
