Wednesdays can feel slow sometimes. It’s the middle of the week, you can feel a little stuck. We get it. This is why you need to fill your day with the following five music videos! Help speed things up a little with some amazing videos and even greater tracks. Take a look below at five videos we can’t stop watching!
Shakira – Dare (La La La)
Ever since Shakira made her big comeback, we’ve seen her pull of reggae-rock and lush ballads, but with her latest song and music video for Dare (La La La), the pop star takes it back to the dance floor. The track is a super-catchy dance track that finds Sharkira shouting, “Truth or dance on the dance floor,” while doing her signature bootylicious moves. There’s even a Spanish version!
Lana Del Rey — West Coast
Songstress Lana Del Rey has been teasing us for months now with her upcoming record, Ultraviolence. There’s still no word yet on when the album, which was produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, will be out, but for now we can bask in the glory of her latest music video for lead single, West Coast. The black-and-white clip is a cinematic shot, much like her other music videos, but things heat up…literally. Burning hot red flames begin to engulf the singer. Quite fitting for such a scorching hot song, in our opinion.
Jesse McCartney – Superbad
Remember Jesse McCartney? Yep, he’s still making music and his latest single Superbad is an infectious track that really shows off a grown-up McCartney. The video finds the singer taking the backseat to his “superbad” girl who makes him spend a ton of money on her after losing a poker match. What happens next is just a lot of her strutting around in new outfits to the soundtrack of the bouncing bass line, the highlight of the track.
The Head and the Heart — Summertime
Indie-rockers The Head and the Heart enlist Canadian artist/musician Chad Vangaalen to animate their latest music video for Summertime and, as usual, Vangaalen knocks it out of the park with his incredibly detailed animated worlds.
Little Dragon — Paris
Swedish electro-pop band Little Dragon was one of our favourite acts at Osheaga two years ago and now they’re back with a new album called Nabuma Rubberband. Paris is the second single off of this record, out May 13, and it’s a quirky video that almost feels like a slice out of Wes Anderson’s world with an otherworldly ending. We’re obsessed.
