KABOOM! MAGAZINE.COM 100 MOST EXPLOSIVE VIDEOS OF 2013 (NO. 39-20)
In 2013, music saw the arrival of new musical icons like Lorde, Arianna Grande, Ashton Mahone, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Krewella. This year also saw the return of megastars like Jay Z, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, Drake, and Kanye West. It seemed like almost every week; artists from past and present were coming out with a new music video, easily making them legends overnight. This week, Kaboom! Magazine has compiled up all of our favorite music videos of 2013 and created Kaboom! Magazine.com “100 Most Explosive Videos of 2013!” “Which new star shinned the brightest?” “Who was most original?” “Is this video Overrated or Underrated?” “Why can’t I stop pressing the play button? All these questions and more will be answered as we have ranked our favorite videos of the year starting at No. 100 all the way down to the most explosive video of the year. The countdown continues today with No. 39-20……. 39. Trindad Jame$ “Female$ Wanted” Trinidad Jame$ follows his runaway smash hit/ratchet national anthem “All Gold Everything” and the ATLien all-star remix with a new video for “Female$ Welcomed” from his mixtape Don’t Be S.A.F.E. The ATL resident returns to his birthplace, St. James, Trinidad & Tobago, for the official video and hits the streets giving us a look a the local environment and sights as well as a selection of some of the local eye candy. 38. Wale “Bad” Tiara Thomas MMG had quite the year in 2013 and Wale was arguably the biggest artist out of the group thanks to his single “Bad.” This classic “good girl/bad girl” tale features songbird Tiara Thomas. Eddie Murphy’s full grown seed, Bria Murphy, plays the leading lady who catches Wale’s curious eye. Murphy’s “bad girl” character is living the crazy life in New York City, and giving her number to any man in close proximity—including a food vendor. 37. Miguel “How Many Drinks (Remix)” feat. Kendrick Lamar Miguel’s insanely smooth, deeply inward 2012 R&B opus Kaleidoscope Dream is the sort of album that demands absolutely zero guest rap verses which, unless you’re counting the bonus-track remix of “Adorn” with Wiz Khalifa, is exactly what it has. But if one of his songs has to have a guest rapper, the deeply simpatico Kendrick Lamar, coming off of an incredible year of his own, is probably the best possible choice. And on a new remix of Miguel’s slick but weirdly desperate “How Many Drinks?,” a new Kendrick verse pops up, stutters along amiably, and then ends, staying out of the way. 36. Calvin Harris “I Need Your Love” feat. Ellie Goulding The video starts with Goulding in bed, singing the song. She is joined by Harris who is depicted to be in a romantic relationship with her. The video shifts to amateur-like footage of Goulding and Harris acting in an affectionate manner towards each other in different locations such as a resort, in a car, and at a beach. 35. Wale “LoveHateThing” feat. Sam Dew They love you, then they hate you, then they love you again. Wale is caught up in the middle of love and heartbreak in his video “LoveHateThing.” The video features great vocals from Sam Dew while Wale heads up the DC band with a one-of-a-kind lyrics. 34. Major Lazar “Bubble Butt (Remix)” feat. 2 Chainz, Tyga, Bruno Mars, & Mystic With the rise of EDM in social media culture Major Lazer club banger ‘Bubble Butt’ was one of the biggest hits of 2013. Featuring 2 Chainz, Bruno Mars, Tyga & Mystic and it’s no ordinary one. In the ridiculously funny video, three women’s butts are injected with air following which they hit the dance floor. 33. Katy Perry “Roar” Perry shows signs of worry, while her boyfriend takes pictures of himself and dumps his bags on her to explore. As it turns to night, Perry and her boyfriend are still wandering through the jungle as her boyfriend throws things back at her. Presumably a few days later, Perry has since made friends with a monkey and uses her stiletto heel to form an spear. She uses it to shoot a banana, which she gives to the monkey. 32. Audio Push “Shine” The California duo put a spin on the story line from the cult classic film Friday in this entertaining treatment. The track samples Janet Jackson’s equally nostalgic hit, “I Get So Lonely,” and features Pricetag and Oktane cruising through street playing the roles “Craig” and “Smokey.” 31. Rihanna “Pour It Up” One of the world’s biggest pop stars trying her hand at playing both stripper and bankroller, a twist on the agency dynamics typically involved in the customer-stripper exchange. There’s a lot of money flying everywhere, and it’s safe to say Rihanna, who is no stranger to strip clubs herself enjoyed making the video. 30. Ty Dolla $ign “Paranoid” feat. B.O.B Ty Dolla $ign had quite the year in 2013 and a lot of that was thanks to stage 5 clinger track “Paranoid” featuring B.O.B. In the video Ty Dolla is seen bleeding to death on the floor after trying to escape the wrath of two very beautiful, but angry women. Fellas let this be a life lesson on who you choose to lay in bed with. paranoid-600x600 29. Miley Cyrus “We Can’t Stop” It received generally mixed reviews from critics, who were divided on Cyrus’ increasingly provocative image. Thirty-seven days after its premiere, it broke the record for the fastest clip to reach 100 million views across VEVO platforms, which was later was beaten by the follow-up single, “Wrecking Ball”. 28. Eminem “Berzerk” Slim Shady returned in 2013 with his oddball video “Berzerk.” The visual features some notable appearances from legendary producer/music executive, Rick Rubin and hip-hop’s man of the hour, Kendrick Lamar. Slaughterhouse also makes an appearance, while Eminem shows up in different scenes including one that pays respect to Beastie Boys ‘So What “Cha Want” video. 27. Avicii “Wake Me Up” Avicii introduced “Wake Me Up” for the first time live on stage at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Avicii achieved critical and commercial success with the release of the single worldwide. “Wake Me Up” peaked at number one in much of Europe and charted well in all of the English-speaking world. Avicii included it as part of the opening or closing sequence of his sets at EDC Las Vegas, EDC London, Tomorrowland, Creamfields,Electric Zoo and iTunes Festival. 26. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis “Can’t Hold Us” The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, making it their second number-one hit in the United States. It is also their third consecutive number-one single in Australia. The music video is nominated for Best Music Video at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards in 2014. 25. Justin Timberlake “Suit & Tie” feat. Jay Z Justin Timberlake brought style and grace back to the music business in 2013 when he made his epic return with “Suit & Tie.” Influenced by the roaring 20’s, Timberlake and Jay Z make it a high-end affair filled with the Tenneesee Kids and a lot very beautiful women. 24. Ciara “Body Party” Singer Ciara is throwing a big party for one in her music video “Body Party” and no clothes are needed to attend. The house party-themed video helmed by Director X was shot in Atlanta and co-stars her boyfriend Future, and includes cameos from Ludacris, Trinidad James, and Jazze Pha. 23. Maroon 5 “Love Somebody” Adam Levine and his bandmates find themselves enveloped in blue-gray paint as they play their dancefloor-lite jam, which was co-written by OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder. 22. John Legend “All of Me” In what would become the most romantic song of 2013, John Legend pays tribute to his wife in his music video “All of Me.” The video features Legend’s new wife, model Chrissy Tiegen. After all, the song was penned for her. The heartwarming video of course highlights the newlyweds, even showcasing footage from their recent wedding in Italy. 21. A$AP Ferg “Shabba” feat. A$AP Rocky In addition to being among the first dancehall artists to go international, Shabba Ranks is famous for his flashy outfits, typically involving an extensive array of gold accoutrements. A fellow admirer of element number 79 on the periodic table, A$AP Ferg channels the Kingston icon’s fly fashion sense, along with a dash of his vocal delivery, on his latest single selection. Over a booming, tension-fraught instrumental by Modern Outfit beatsmith Snugworth, the emcee busts out his best fake patois as he boasts about his wardrobe and his “coupe full of bad hoes.” A$AP capo Rocky guests. 20. Cassie “Paradise” feat. Wiz Khalifa Cassie makes Southern California her oyster in her video “Paradise” Da Internz’ springy electronic grooves back sexually-aggressive verses from the Bad Boy pop songstress.
