It’s that time once again. Another year has flown by, and we’re sitting here in New York City on a frosty winter eve taking stock of the year 2013 as it pertains to music videos. It was not only a year in which stars transformed into superstars (we’re looking at you, Bruno Mars and Miley Cyrus), but one where newcomers like Lorde, Imagine Dragons and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were able to flip the script and dominate their seemingly unstoppable peers. So sit back and enjoy the ride as we count down VH1′s Top 40 Videos Of 2013!
Love makes sweet music! Many musicians can’t resist bringing their boos into the vocal booth for some sultry duets. Most recently we heard from John Mayer and Katy Perry on “Who You Love” (A.K.A. Russell Brand‘s least favorite song). Earlier this year Ciara heralded her couple-dom with Future with “Where You Go,” and although she doesn’t actually sing a note on the track (thank god), Kanye West did tap Kim Kardashian to appear in his video for “Bound2” a few weeks back. In honor of all the coupling going on in the music biz, we’ve decided to take a look back at the most notable real-life couple collaborations in music!
December is nearly upon us, a month in which all of us take a fond look back at the year that was while also plotting on how we can make the following year even more awesome. That said, today is Thanksgiving, a day which is predicated on giving thanks for all of the blessings that have been bestowed upon us. So it’s only natural that we spent some time over the last week carving our way through the archives here at the VH1 Music, being careful to toss the bones to the left and saving all the good, juicy stuff for you today. So, without further ado, here is our list of What We’re Most Thankful For From The World Of Music In 2013.
