Weekend Music Video Real

While the latest clips from Rihanna, Drake, Fifth Harmony and Ellie Goulding will all help you move and groove your T.G.I.F. lives, there’s one clip on the list that will absolutely destroy your soul and then some. See if you can figure out which one it is. 

Welcome to this week’s very emotional Weekend Music Video Real. 

Rihanna/Drake/’Work” Because the 950, 000 times you’ve already watched (both versions) just aren’t enough. 

Kelly Clarkson/”Piece by Piece” (Live on American Idol) Pass ALL the Kleenex, please. You’re going to need it. 

Puff Daddy/Lil Kim/Styles/”Auction” Bad Boy’s baddest Queen Bitch came back to slay this week. And Puff Daddy, Styles P. and King Los are there, too! 

Troye Sivan/”Youth” Out-and-proud singer Troye Sivan is about to own your music lives with this fun, fiery number. Get ready. 

Dillon Francis/Kygo/James Hersey”Coming Over” A visual match made from from tropical house–meets-dubstep heaven. 

Demi Lovato/”Stone Cold” Just when you thought you had used up ALL the Kleenex. Thanks, Ms. Lovato. 

Ellie Goulding/”Something in the Way You Move” Go on with those almost there dance moves, Ms. Goulding. 

Fifth Harmony/Ty Dolla Sign/”Work From Home” Simon Cowell’s lovely ladies are back and ready to slay with 2016’s first official warm-weathered groove. #thinkspring 

“Britney teaches Adele a few things” Just watch and get ready to practice those body rolls. 

Adele/”When We Were Young” Speaking of Ms. Adele, this performance of her second 25 single at this past week’s Brit Awards is absolutely flawless. For more highlights from this year’s show (including more of RiRi and Drake puttin’ in their “Work”), check this out. 

So, are you and your mom still trying to figure out just what the f#$k RiRi is spitting out in her 14th Billboard number one smash, “Work?” Luckily for all of us whom are still trying, um, to work it out, incredible songstress Samantha Harvey has released a riveting slowed down piano laced rewire of the cheeky tune, and guess what…it actually makes sense of it all.

Harvey wrote on her Facebook page that it took her “lots of time” to translate Rihanna’s lyrics for “Work” and to also come up with the now infamous cover, but we’re so glad she did because besides translating the tune, her take is pretty god damn amazing. Just listen. 

Bjork/”I’ve Seen It All” (Live from the 2001 Academy Awards) Let’s not forget, it’s also Oscars weekend. See you on Monday!
