December 2013



2013 was the first year at IMVDb that we collected lots of data, every day. We decided it might be interesting to look back at 2013 through the numbers that we've been gathering over the past twelve months. So, here is our first annual music videos by the numbers report!… Read More

Over the holiday break I heard a lot about Justin Bieber, and none of it was particularly good press. He had a film opening on Christmas Day that didn't do as well as some had expected, and everyone thought he was retiring from music because, well, he told people he… Read More

By now, we all know about the dick/fuck face that leaked Miley’s “Adore You” video a day early. Despite that, homegirl still came in at over 10.5 million views since 10am on Thursday, which is completely insane. The next most popular video on the list is “Sing About Me” by… Read More

There was a lot of anticipation leading up to the release of “Adore You” by Miley Cyrus. After teasing the internet with a few Instagram videos promoting the release on December 26th, the stage was set for Miley to potentially break many of her own Vevo records that she set… Read More

Read on to discover which of this week’s new music videos we’re… Read More

It’s the second to last week of the year, but clearly music videos don’t give a shit about that. They’re still going strong, doing some unorthodox and big deal things. Like Beyoncé who dropped two music videos in a day, after releasing 17 last week on iTunes - you crazy… Read More

In “Over It,” the new video from The Crystal Method ft. Dia Frampton, Dia finds herself as the only modestly dressed contestant on a cooking show where looks and eye fucking are rewarded higher than cooking skills. Directed by Zak Stoltz, the video features cameo parts from the Crystal Method… Read More

The most omnipresent form of Christmas entertainment in our house is without a doubt the modern Christmas movie. My wife is a big enthusiast of this art form, and every year she seems to find a never-ending supply of Christmas movies that almost always revolve around two basic plots: experiencing… Read More

Perhaps you heard about Beyoncé's album and music video release from last week? It was released at midnight on Thursday and people understandably went nuts since nobody knew it was going to happen. And so now we've got a sweet new set of tracks about Beyoncé and Jay Z having… Read More

Directed by Terry Richardson, “XO” is one of the 17 music videos included on Beyoncé’s self-titled “visual album” released last Friday. The video takes place in Coney Island on a summer day/night, with Beyoncé dressed casually in jeans and a white tank top (although still tremendously fabulous, naturally) while she… Read More

According to Lorde’s Facebook page, the concept for “Team” came from a dream she had "a few months ago about teenagers in their own world.” Set in an abandoned granary, director Young Replicant took influence from both Lorde’s lyrics and the concept that originated in her dream to create a visually… Read More

We've all been in situations where we just want to mess shit up. Maybe you're at Trader Joe's on a Saturday afternoon and it's extremely busy and you just want to just take the re-stocking cart full of Camembert Cheese & Cranberry Sauce Fillo Bites and just throw it all… Read More

Read on to discover which of this week’s new music videos were the most remarkable. Beautifully shot in… Read More

One thing we learned from the most popular music videos from this week is that the internet wants what it wants. If we were to tell you that a Joseph Kahn-directed Britney Spears video was released, normally it would be pretty safe to assume that it would be the top… Read More

Directed by Hannah Lux Davis, the flashy “100 Favors” by Rich Gang ft. Kendrick Lamar is a performance music video that includes pretty ladies, Grand Touring Vodka, weed vaporizers, and some beautiful underwater shots. Rather than filling the video with traditional "video girls," the women are glamorously styled and are… Read More

There are many different ways to do a music video for a Christmas song, but my favorite has always been a well-done performance video. Since many Christmas songs are standards, the track is all about the artist, their performance, and what style they bring to it. A strong performance video… Read More

The video for “Hey Brother” by Avicii, directed by Jesse S, is a story about two brothers during the Vietnam War era in the US. The older of the two brothers, played by Zach Voss, appears to be just old enough to be called to fight in the war, and… Read More

In “Cyrstaillized” by Young The Giant, director Elliott Sellers puts an intergalactic twist on the performance video by setting the band in a meteor flaying across space. By racking focus and projecting shapes and colors onto the band while they perform, Elliott is able to mimic the look of the band riding inside… Read More

Since the death of Nelson Mandela there has, of course, been a lot of focus in the news on South Africa. If you didn't know much about Mandela before, you're probably learning a lot as news organizations around the world recap his life. One of the Mandela stories I wasn't… Read More

One of the many services we provide here at IMVDb is telling you when someone who doesn't usually participate in music videos is in a music video. Trust us, if you want to impress people at a party, nothing does the trick like "you know that guy/girl was in a… Read More
