It's 2022, and there have been a lot of popular music videos. Music videos are made to advertise an artist or a song and to increase their exposure online and in concert halls. And some artists have even opted to release new music accompanied by animated music videos. 2022 video production is much less of a headache and more energetic and beautiful scenes. Most music videos of 2022 are definitely worth your time, below are the top music videos of 2022.
"Sweetie" By Best Friend (Ft. Doja Cat)
Saweetie's video gave us a lesson in feminism and the latest fashion trends. The music video for their single "Best Friend" sets the mood with a telepathic conversation about fake men.
The two also have fun in a strip club, a prison, a hotel lobby, and a Tesla that has been blinded. Under the direction of Dave Meyers, the Californians in the video show class, power, and friendship throughout, but especially in the opening scene when they hit a "fake misogynist" who tries to shout at them while they're relaxing in the sun.
Since it was put on YouTube in January, over 137 million people have watched it, and the song has been certified multiple times platinum. Now a lot of people are using Garageband to recreate her music.
"King" By Florence & The Machine
Florence + The Machine is back with a new song called "King" after the success of their last album, High as Hope. It sounds like it will be the first song on their next studio album.
The music video came out on February 23, and it shows Florence Welch as a goddess of self-healing who is aware of her flaws and the failed relationships she has had. So far, this is one of the most interesting videos of the year because of how well it uses color, symbolism, and dancing.
"Can't Do It By Myself" [feat. Navy Blue] By Wiki
While watching this clip, you might have thought you heard the Mister Softee ice cream truck. Hip-hop artists Wiki and Navy Blue are being followed by a cameraman with a handheld camera. He seems more like a third friend than a third person watching.
Wiki always has a joint in his ear while he and his friends cook pizza on the stairs and hang out with other smokers they know. With its shots of skyscrapers and bodegas, the clip makes me feel like I'm back in New York City on a Saturday afternoon, going from one neighborhood to the next without a plan.
"Don't Go Yet" By Camila Cabello
Camila Cabello drives to a family party in this music video. The video goes from live-action to stop-motion, and then the singer and her family dance at the end. The upbeat choreography in the video goes well with the song "Don't Go," and the bright colors, lively camera work, and beautiful shots only add to the experience.
Cabello made a good choice by having her own family members tell the story in the video. She did this because she wanted the story to sound like it was true. You'll wish you could go to the singer's next family reunion after seeing this. It has a great mix of beautiful pictures and things that will stick with you.
"She's All I Wanna Be" - Tate McRae
This reference to Chorus Line shows that McRae is a struggling dancer who is trying to fit in with the crowd at an audition. She does this by competing with the other women who are there.
With her metallic navy blue workout clothes, fishnet stockings, and leg warmers, McRae looks like she went back to the 1980s. The singer hides her worries by putting on winged eyeliner and a high ponytail. She tells the audience that she wants to be "that girl."
"UP" By Cardi B
Cardi B has become a music video powerhouse in a short amount of time. Her latest video, "UP," is another stunning example of how she can mix high fashion with choreography and green screens. There are a lot of interesting clothes in this video.
Cardi B in an Abraham D. Levy crystal corset and Esmay Wagemans in a tailored, see-through plastic suit are just two examples. Sean Bankhead's moves on the dance floor also inspired a popular TikTok challenge that people still do today.
"Good 4 U" By Olivia Rodrigo
Olivia Rodrigo criticizes the song's message that some people are angry after a breakup "Good 4 U." Rodrigo buys a gas tank while wearing black latex gloves and dressing as a cheerleader. This shows that she wants to get rid of her anger by setting fire to the building.
There are references to well-known movies like The Princess Diaries and Jennifer's Body. After "Driver's License" and "Deja Vu," Rodrigo's "Good 4 U" is the third music video to keep up with his theme." The 18-year-old pop star always plays the same songs because she knows what her fans want to hear.
"Treat People With Kindness" By Harry Styles
The music video for Styles' upbeat song "Treat People With Kindness" was a great addition. He danced on the internet and was in a video with Phoebe Waller-Bridge to start the new year on a good note (Fleabag). Because both the black-and-white video and the song are so happy, it will be a classic for years to come.
"Coconuts" By Kim Petras
Fans of Petras's popular song "Tik Tok'' can now watch the music video the singer promised them, complete with beautiful and funny dance moves. Petras wears an orange corset and a metallic miniskirt in the video. There is also a green screen that looks like it was made in the 1970s. It has flowers and coconuts on it.
"The Queen And The Joker" By Taylor Swift & Ed Sheeran
Fans were surprised when Sheeran and Swift released a new duet called "Everything Has Changed" after nine years. In it, they sing a duet about how love can help you open up to the person you love, even if it's scary and dangerous to do so.
The music video for "The Joker and the Queen" focuses on this idea by showing how a relationship grows (funny enough, it's the same relationship as in their first video) and how strong romantic love is even when things don't go as planned.
