KISS may not be the most wholesome band but they still enjoy a nice cup of coffee in the morning like the rest of us. Folgers Coffee must have had similar sentiments until they changed their mind last minute.
YOK Artist Hozier’s single “Take Me To Church” is currently number two on Billboard’s Hot 100 and is one of the most played songs of 2014. We went behind-the-scenes with the singer in the making of his new music video for “From Eden,” and for the next 24 hours, you can too!
From Nicki Minaj’s wardrobe malfunction at the VMAs to Ariana Grande’s much meme-d Victoria’s Secret show performance and even Lady Gaga‘s mid-set vomit stunt, 2014 wasn’t lacking in controversial onstage moments. And there was even a fair share of uplifting, iconic performances, like Beyoncé’s Vanguard performance at the VMAs and Miley Cyrus teaming up with the Flaming Lips for Conan (genius). Check out our year in memorable music performance below…
It goes without saying that the music gods were extremely kind to us in 2014. Heck, we got a new album from D’Angelo from goodness sake! In addition to new offerings from pop powerhouses like Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, and Ed Sheeran, the year saw thrilling new artists emerge onto the scene. Sam Smith, Tove Lo, Iggy Azalea and more staked their claim alongside the more seasoned chart vets, releasing albums that are destined to become (*ahem*) new classics. VH1 staffers weighed in on their choices for the best records of the year, so read on to see their picks!
Beyonce, our full time Yas Girl, truly has a loyal following of fans who love to dance to her music and share it with the world. Imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery, after all. With a simple search through Youtube, you could easily find people of all ages strutting their stuff with her tunes as their soundtrack. But let’s be honest, the best contenders for Queen Bey backup dancers are actually… babies. These tiny tots grooving to Bey’s jams are sure to inspire you to dance along, wherever you are. We can’t wait for babies dancing to the “7/11″ video to turn up!
Nicki Minaj’s third studio album The Pinkprint is considered by many her most emotional and personal project to date. To further promote the album, she flexes her acting chops in a new 16 minute short film called The Pinkprint. Created and starring Nicki, the film is divided into three parts: “The Crying Game,” “I Lied” and “Grand Piano,” each a song off of the The Pinkprint album. Co-starring Will Monfret and Boris Kodjoe, emotions run high throughout the video as Nicki deals with heartbreak, insecurities, and a bad breakup.
As 2014 comes to a close, it’s time to look back at all of the incredible music videos from this year. These past 12 months have brought us some breakout stars like Sam Smith, Tove Lo and Charli XCX who dominated the music scene with their unique sounds. We also got treated with standouts from artists like Taylor Swift and Pharrell who never disappoint. It was the year Iggy Azalea took on the classic 90′s movie Clueless with the “Fancy” video, and who could forget John Legend’s beautiful tribute to wife Chrissy Teigen with “All Of Me”? Wrap up 2014 by taking a trip down memory lane with Top 20 Countdown‘s picks for the 20 biggest videos of the year.
This week on Top 20 Countdown, host Jim Shearer sits down with K. Michelle to talk about her steaming hot Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart album cover, her brand new sound and what she loved most about 2014.
This holiday season, we’re thankful for a little laughter and face time with the one and only Faith Evans!
