Ne-Yo: U.K. version of Chris Brown, Conor Maynard flies into the US and becomes literally a fly by night sensation with his smash video “Turn Around”. In the video, Maynard is showing a very lucky lady all the sights and sounds of Los Angeles, while letting her know that as he has her; he can literally do anything. The young lad is also thrown the assist by none other international superstar Ne-Yo. 78. John Hart “Who’s Booty” Feat iamSu: I THINK EVERY MAN IN AMERICA WISH THEY COULD WAKE UP WITH JOHN HART PROBLEMS! After a night of partying in the mansion, Singer John Hart woke up to a mysterious booty pic on his iphone. Throughout the video, Hart and his friend rapper iamSu search throughout the leftover women crashed out everywhere from the party to find out “Who Booty Is It?”. Now I’ve never woke up from a party with a mysterious woman booty pic on my phone, but I wouldn’t mind that either. 997356E32FE15F4B33CF1EA739F584D5 77. Meek Mill “Amen” Feat. Drake: Gotta love that tour life! MMG rapper Meek Mill took some time out of his busy “Dreams & Nightmares” Tour to thank everyone including the haters in the hit video “Amen”. Meek shows us exactly what goes on during his crazy a** tour, but even though it can get alittle out of hand at times…he wouldn’t change it for anything. Drake stops through during the video to let you know what he just purchased and how it way bigger than anything that you purchased….#Cocky 76. Travis Porter “Ayyy Ladies” Feat. Tyga: We’ve been a fan of Travis Porter for quite some time now, but 2012 was defiantly the group biggest year to date. The trio partied their way throughout the year with their hit video “Ayyy Ladies”. Travis Porter embraces the rock star lifestyle by throwing an animal house style hotel party. The video also comes with a few guest appearances from Tyga, Chris Brown, and Meek Mill. 75. Wiz Khalifa “Remember Me” Feat. The Weeknd: In early November 2012, Wiz was gearing up to release his second studio album “O.N.I.F.C”. To help make the album one of the greatest albums of the year, Wiz rolled up (No Point Intended) to Canada and went into the studio with The Weeknd and created the panty dropper “Remember Me”. The video has to be Wiz most sexual video to date and also about the only time you see him not with Fiancée Amber Rose in 2012. A lot of you may also be wondering where The Weeknd is throughout the video, but only true The Weeknd fans know that he is usually heard and never seen in music videos….including his own. 74. Rockie Fresh “Into The Future”: IF YOU THINK THIS VIDEO WASN’T ONE OF THE HOTTEST OF 2012, THEN PLAYA YOU A LIE! The Marty McFly of rap hopped into the Deloren and instead of taking it back to 1985, Chi-town native Rockie Fresh decided to drive it 88mph and create his own electric highway in the video “Into The Future”. With futuristic flows and futuristic fashion (I see you with the McFlys on fresh.), Rockie Fresh was the talk of record labels everywhere in late 2012. After going through a few offers, Rockie ended up signing with Rick Ross MMG label. Now with Ross stamp of approval, watch out for this kid in 2013, because once he get up to 88mph…..YOU’RE GONNA SEE SOME SERIOUS SH*T! Rockie-Fresh-Into-The-Future-Music-Video 73. Fat Joe “Pride and Joy” Feat. Kanye West, Miguel, and Roscoe Dash: Fat Joe dropped this star-studded video single entitled, “Pride N Joy.” The track features damn near everybody on the planet including Kanye West, DJ Khaled, and Busta Rhymes. Conversely the lovely Ashanti swings through for a cameo, but doesn’t join on the mic. 72. B.O.B “Outta My Mind” Feat. Nicki Minaj: We gotta be outta of our minds to put this video at No. 72. B.O.B lets us in his to see how he views life in the Nicki Minaj assisted track “Outta My Mind”. In the video, B.O.B is trying to escape from a mental hospital where he is currently being held. B.o.B. then gets wheeled into a doctor’s office for his psyche evaluation and his doctor is none other than Nicki Minaj. Instead of evaluating B.O.B, she turns the office into her own personal peep show. 71. Ciara “Sorry”: Sometimes in relationships, we say things that we don’t mean; but instead of admitting guilt we stay silent causing the issue to never be resolved. Ciara knows that feelings and wishes she had the guts to take everything that she said in the video “Sorry”. In a song that she later tells the media was about ex-boyfriend rapper 50 cent, CiCi is going through a post break-up where she wishes that she could just apologize to her ex and make things right; but her pride will not allow her to do that. Sometimes it’s easier to push a person away than pull them in closer and just say sorry. 70. Mariah Carey “Triumphant (Get’em)” Feat. Rick Ross & Meek Mill: Mariah Carey stays teaming up with rappers and it no different for her boxing themed video “Triumphant (Get’em). Meek plays a boxer in a championship fight and Rozay is acting the part of promoter. As for Mariah, she’s the sexy ring card girl that holds the cards in the ring that announce what round is next. 69. Krewella “Feel Me”: Krewella have been making HUGE waves all across the country. Playing sold-out shows and huge festival spots ever since there successful Play Hard EP dropped in 2012. “Feel Me” is a track of the EP that hits hard, and has the signature contrasting smooth seductive vocals from the Jahan and Yasmine. They made a fitting video, highlighting the vocals as well as the energy of the live shows. 68. August Alsina “Sucka (Remix)” Feat. Lloyd: R&B’s underground star August Alsina has linked up with his Noontime Unlimited partner Lloyd for a remix to his popular single “Sucka”, off The Product, a mixtape Alsina released this past April. 67. 3OH!3 “You’re Gonna Love This”: 3OH!3 engage in an increasingly complex game of top this, one that involves little more than sinking impossible shots around Vegas’ Planet Hollywood. Dice are cast from across the room with amazing accuracy, Frisbees chucked into dustbins from downtown and a three-pointer is drained from the backseat of a convertible. In theory, they’re doing this to win the affections of a girl, though in the end, she chooses a Tom Cruise impersonator over the duo. 66. A$AP Rocky “Purple Kisses”: If Lil Wayne ever went to rehab, this video would probably be the reason why. NYC MC A$AP Rocky decided to let fans in on one of his private parties with the video “Purple Kisses”. Directed by Rocky himself, the video details a night with the rapper filled Drugs, Beanies, Gold Teeth, and butt-naked women. With the video going so slow motion as it does, it so easy to fall in love with it. 65. 2 Chainz “I Luv Dem Strippers” Feat. Nicki Minaj: You’ll be seeing a lot of 2 Chainz on this countdown as he was practically everywhere in 2012. Right now he back in his old stomping the traps of ATL bringing joy to all the hard working ladies at the gentlemen’s club courtesy of Nicki Minaj in “I Luv Dem Strippers”. 64. Jhene Aiko “3:16AM”: Jhene Aiko was a touring favorite all across the country in 2012. In the middle of touring, Aiko decided to shoot the video “3:16AM” a single that drove hip-hop blog sites crazy when it was released in the middle of 2012. The video captures Ms. Aiko in all her troubled beauty, taking proceedings from a depressive, densely-lit cabin, to the ambient atmosphere of the woods, and finally to the lonely state of the desert, where things end tragically. 63. R3venge of the Nerds “Rejects”: EVEN LOSERS HAVE THEIR DAY! Southern Cali Hip-Hop Hippies R3venge of the Nerds show us how smart kids do senior ditch day with the video “Rejects”. In the video, R.O.T.N has a toast for the douchebags and a**holes while playing beer pong and smoking some of cali finest with some very attractive company. Now these guys must have some type of Jedi mind tricks up their sleeves because you will never guess what these guys have these girls doing at the end of the video. #NerdSwerve 62. Driicky Graham “Snapback & Tattoos”: Driicky Graham’s name may not be full star power potential just yet, but you can’t deny how huge his hit single “Snapbacks and Tattoos” was in 2012. For Only being 20 years old, Graham has been making some serious paper this year. How many 20 year-olds you know with cars like that? 61. DJ Pauly D “Night Of My Life” Feat. Dash: A lot DJs may hate on him, but you can’t deny that this dude right here is making money and enjoying life while doing it. 2012 was a very big year for DJ Pauly D, Jersey Shore was coming to an end, 50 Cent signed him to G Note Records, His own reality show on MTV, and became one of the biggest attractions in Vegas history. In the video “Night Of My Life” Pauly D takes you into his life as it at the top of his career and according to him, it just feels like the night of his life. 60. Miranda Lambert “Fastest Girl In Town”: Making the countdown at No. 60 is a woman that could literally drive you crazy. Miranda Lambert is country music bad girl and she makes it very well known in her video “Fastest Girl In Town”. Lambert uses the help of her good friend Danica Patrick to hi-jack a guy car which leads to a high speed chase ending with the two getting away to the nearest chop shop for a beer. 59. Ne-Yo “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself)”: Hit singer-songwriter Ne-Yo is back with another smash single from his 2012 R.E.D. album. “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself)” is one of the reason Ne-Yo is the new VP of A&R at Motown. As with most of today’s R&B, Ne-Yo takes “Let Me Love You” in the Euro-dance direction musically. 58. Mike Posner “Looks Like Sex”: Mike Posner had quite the 2012. Not only was he making crazy loot writing hit songs for other artist (highlighted by Justin Bieber “Boyfriend”), but Posner also had time to please his female fans with his own music. Early Jan., Posner put out one of the sexiest videos of 2012 with “Looks Like Sex”., Posner surrounds himself with a lot of women; while scoping out the scene, he catches a glimpse of one of best asses he has ever seen causing him to think about nothing but sex. The video features women, more women, and….did we say women? 57. Dom Kennedy “My Type Of Party”: Dom Kennedy owned the summer of 2012 with his song “My Type Of Party”. Rocking the “Stussy” hat like it 1996 (Only bad move Kennedy did this year if you ask me.) Kennedy mobs into the party like he is the man and everyone treats him like so. Sean Kingston even stopped by the video to hangout, that how much of a boss Dom Kennedy is. 56. 2 Chainz “No Lie” Feat. Drake: THERE’S NO WAY WE COULD LIE ABOUT NO. 56! 2 Chainz is back on the countdown with help from his playa partner Drake at No. 56 with their video “No Lie”. In the video, 2 Chainz lets the hater know one thing, say what you wanna say about him just don’t lie about it. And just when the Hookah trend was dying down, Drake restarts the craze back up by smoking it like the greatest thing ever in the video. If Drake opens a Hookah bar he loses cool points with me. 55. French Montana “Pop That” Feat. Drake, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross: Yesterday French Montana made our countdown with his video “Shot Caller (Remix), today his back on our countdown at No. 55 with his strip club banger “Pop That”. Sampling Luke and The 2 Live Crew classic “I Wanna Rock (Doo Doo Brown”), the NY rapper parties it up in Miami with Drake, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross. Now it is a Miami Pool Party so it gets alittle out of hand, but if you’re sampling Uncle Luke….don’t do anything less. 54. Brandy “Put It Down” Feat. Chris Brown: Two of R&B’s biggest hitmakers of the past 25 years finally get put it down and create music video magic as Brandy and Chris Brown come together for “Put It Down”. In the video, Brandy is looking for a man that can only do one thing….and that PUT IT DOWN ONF HER! Brandy goes through a couple of potential men, but eventually finds her match in the younger Chris Breezy. 53. Mann “Get It Girl” Feat. T-Pain: Rapper Mann enlists auto-tune king T-Pain for his single “Get It Girl”. A Hip-Pop track produced by J.R Rotem puts a new spin on the iconic electronic theme tune from ’80s comedy film “Beverly Hills Cop” starring Eddie Murphy. Mann and T-Pain go back to college and get the party started and even throwing in a few moves of their own. 52. Drake “The Motto” Feat. Tyga & Lil Wayne: Drake “Take Care” album was arguably the best album of 2012. It seemed like every song on that album was being played on the radio or in the club at some point every day. Paying respect to the Hyphy movement, Mr. Y.O.L.O got together with Tyga and Lil Wayne and created the club banger “The Motto”. The video starts out paying homage to Yay Area legend Mac Dre with an emotional message from Dre’s mother followed by Drake dippin through the bay in a caddy, hitting all the cool spots along the way. Drake also runs into other No. Cal legends E-40 and Mista FAB. Tyga comes in sporting that Dodger Blue (Which he shoulda got stomped out for in the Bay.) splittin some pretty sick bars, while Lil Wayne comes out of nowhere with some bright green uggs on basically trippin us all out in the process. 51. David Guetta “I Can Only Imagine” Feat. Chris Brown & Lil Wayne: The world No. 1 DJ transforms his music into an alternate future in “I Can Only Imagine” featuring Chris Brown and Lil Wayne. The transformer-like music video follows Guetta, Brown, and Wayne through an alternate universe where music runs free and people ride skateboards on hologram ramps. 50. Audio Push “Radio” Feat. Mishon: Oktane and Price Tag have come a long way from the days when they were teenagers just teaching us how to jerk. Now these two young men are putting away all the childish games and making grown man moves starting with their 2012 southern california smash “Radio”. In the video, Audio Push single is one of the hottest songs in the country, causing them to travel all over the world keeping them away from the ones they love. Earlier in the year, Audio Push signed a label deal with hit producer Hit Boy (N*ggas In Paris and Clique); so expect these two to be on you radio dial for a very long time. 309555_5135c456becd3bfb68e55be3b339c89a DID YOUR FAVORITE VIDEOS OF 2012 MAKE OUR COUNTDOWN?
