Popology Now’s Top Music Videos of 2015
They really don’t make music videos like they use to. It’s slowly become a dying art, but thankfully a few artists this year decided to up their game and deliver some standout clips that defined 2015. Well, at least for us.
Whether they were dancing in the middle of a junk yard, hanging out with some aliens down in the Valley, kidnapping people, casting spells in the forest, or becoming one of the biggest memes of the year, each video below became a fixture for us during these last twelve months.
Grab a bowl of popcorn, sit back, relax, and feast your eyes on our list of Top Music Videos of 2015.
Zedd. ft Selena Gomez – ‘I Want You To Know
Tell us lies about how you’re not dying to turn up with Selena in a club after watching this.
Tinashe – ‘All Hands On Deck’
Because no one dances like this post-Britney and Tinashe remains the biggest superstar y’all keep sleepin’ on .
Sia – ‘Fire Meet Gasoline’
Is it a music video? Is it not a music video? It’s a video to us and it was a breath of fresh air amongst all the Maddie Ziegler mania. Plus, it doesn’t get any hotter than Heidi Klum.
Britney Spears ft. Iggy Azalea – ‘Pretty Girls’
We’re pretty delusional for including this, we admit it. But you can’t deny how lively Britney looks here.
Paris Hilton – ‘High Off My Love’
Leave it to Paris Hilton to show all these B pop girls how to really create a music video.
Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar – ‘Bad Blood (Remix)’
The messiah of all music videos this year.
Nicki Minaj ft. Beyonce – ‘Feelin’ Myself’
When the hell else are you gonna see Nicki and B share burgers?
Jason Derulo – ‘Cheyenne’
Taking cues from Michael never looked so good on Jason.
Madonna ft. Nicki Minaj – ‘Bitch I’m Madonna’
As tiresome as she can be, only Madonna could create a circus as enjoyable as this one.
Ciara – ‘Dance Like We’re Making Love’
Who wants to take strutting classes after watching Ciara work the hell out of that hallway in the final scene?
dumblonde – ‘white lightning’
The perfect storm of what happens when two blondes re-brand themselves into something bolder.
Calvin Harris ft. Disciples – ‘How Deep Is Your Love?’
Two words: Gigi Hadid.
Lana Del Rey – ‘High By The Beach’
The truth is we wouldn’t be caught dead trying to spy on LDR.
Taylor Swift – ‘Wildest Dreams’
Not her strongest, but certainly her most stunning visual to date.
Zara Larsson ft. MNEK – ‘Never Forget You’
A unique approach to the concept behind eternal love and soul mates.
Disclosure ft. Lorde – ‘Magnets’
Who expected Lorde to vamp it up in this clip? Honestly.
dumblonde – ‘carry on’
Carry on if you don’t think this is this duo’s sharpest visual yet.
Demi Lovato – ‘Confident’
A little action, with extra cheeeeese.

The moment Ariana finally realized what it means to be a pop star.
Missy Elliott ft. Pharrell – ‘WTF (Where They From?)’
An iconic re-emerges and proves if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Melanie Martinez – ‘Soap/Training Wheels
The dedication Melanie has to her aesthetic and themes is a work of art.
Selena Gomez – ‘Hands To Myself’
We could have left this one out since it just premiered, but why would we want to?
