This week the most popular post is coming at you a little late, and honestly, it's because the Applebee's near us was being fumigated and we had to drive 50 minutes to one across town. Sorry.

But that's now what we're here to talk about. We're here to talk about what music videos people were into, and this week people were definitely into Selena Gomez being sad. Her black and white video for "The Heart Wants What It Wants" came out on top this week with a little over 9 million views. Selena joins Ariana Grande in having some success with songs ("Problem" treads similar ground) about being aware someone is not good to be around but they want them because ... I don't know. It's a mystery. The heart wants what it wants, as Selena would say.

Speaking of our girl Grande (I call her Grande), she's right on Selena's heels today with "Love Me Harder." Die Antwoord, Lorde, Kendrick Lamar - it's a great top 10! If you want even more, however, you can check out this top 25 playlist. We also released a podcast episode yesterday where we talked about these videos (and more) with director Austin Peters:
