Guards Evoke Fifties Nostalgia In Their New “Ready To Go” Video

Guards are a Brooklyn-based indie rock band who we were fortunate enough to catch live a few times at SXSW a few weeks back. Their debut album, In Guards We Trust, is full of anthemic tracks that combine gorgeously fuzzy guitar riffs and multi-tracked vocals in a way that feels both nostalgic and very of-the-moment. Their new, black and white, Super 8 style video for “Ready To Go” definitely caters to that nostalgic element of which we speak, and sort of reminds of a 50s era analog of Jimmy Eat World‘s video for “The Middle.”

GIF WALL: T.I.’s Dance Moves In “Blurred Lines” Are Our Everything

TIP Dancing Blurred Lines

We gave Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines” our #ONREPEAT stamp of approval yesterday, and not just because of Thicke’s falsetto croon or Pharrell‘s righteous mashup of Marvin and MJ. One of the best parts of the video, and possibly of the 2000s, is seeing T.I. straight-up clowning on the dancefloor, busting moves that we never ever thought him possible of. Read more…

#ONREPEAT: Robin Thicke’s Infectious “Blurred Lines” Has People Saying ‘TimberWHO?’

The gauntlet has been thrown down, y’all! After Justin Timberlake dropped a moody video for “Mirrors” on Tuesday night in which he doesn’t even show up until five minutes and 45 seconds have elapsed (!), Robin Thicke decided it was high time to bring some capital F.U.N. back to the R&B game. His new video for “Blurred Lines,” featuring starring performances from Pharrell, T.I. and a bevy of supermodels, has captivated the entire editorial floor here at VH1 this morning. Read more…

Justin Timberlake Reflects On A Relationship’s Past, Present And Future In His New Video For “Mirrors”

Justin Timberlake‘s 20/20 Experience came out today, an album that was nearly seven years in the making, but one that also managed to sneak up on us in relatively quick fashion. Unlike, say, Lady Gaga’s Born This Way, which was hyped for 11 months before its release, we first learned of the new JT album‘s existence just over 2 months ago. To celebrate the album’s release, tonight Timberlake released a video for “Mirrors,” the 8+ minute second single from the album.

Kelly Rowland Wants Her Kisses Down Low, But Her Music Video Nice And Sweet

Kelly Rowland’s “Kisses Down Low” is a unsprisingly sexual song, although not surprising for Rowland herself, whose last single “Ice” contained lyrics such as these: “Take the ice cube (boy you know what) /Sit it right below my navel and watch what I do /And that’s my favorite angle /My legs are numb now /Your lovin’ be givin’ me chills.” Perhaps what is surprising is the song’s accompanying music video, which just came out today, and is a fairly innocent and flashing collection of Kellys–each with a different haircut. The video doesn’t venture far from just that, which seems to conflict with the song’s super sexy agenda.

Mariah Carey Is Overcome By Emotion In “Almost Home”

Mariah Carey‘s “Almost Home” video has great classic Mariah moments–and by great, we mean hilariously awkward. Nothing about the video or message of the song is supposed to be funny, but that doesn’t keep one from letting out a chuckle accompanied by an endearing, “Oh, Mariah.” Read more…

Like everyone, we were hoping for a Janet Jackson cameo in Kendrick Lamar‘s highly anticipated visual to “Poetic Justice.” Janet opted out of making an appearance in the song that samples her voice on “Any Time, Any Place,” but K. Dot didn’t disappoint with the mini film he presented. Read more…

Exclusive! Go Behind The Scenes Of The “Remix (I Like The)” Video Shoot With New Kids On The Block

It makes our brains hurt to think that the debut New Kids On The Block record came out almost 27 years ago (!!!), but it’s very gratifying to see Danny, Donnie, Joey, Jon and Jordan still churning out hits after all these years. VH1 was able to score this exclusive footage from the set of their upcoming video for “Remix (I Like The),” the first single off the band’s latest album, 10 (due to be released on April 2), which we’d like to exclusively share with you, the Blockheads!
