The Most Groundbreaking Music Videos Of 2014

For some, music videos make or break a song. The music video can emphasize a facet of the song you might not have otherwise picked up on, and for better or for worse, your mind will forever recall images of the video whenever you hear the song. The following 12 music videos only add to the songs they were made for—so much so that we deem them to be the best of the best music videos this year. From Sia’s “Chandelier” to Kiesza’s “Hideaway” to FKA Twigs’ “Video Girl,” check out the most groundbreaking, unforgettable music videos of 2014.

“Chandelier” by Sia

Maddie Ziegler became the face of this song as she danced and twirled in a platinum blonde wig and nude bodysuit in the music video that went viral shortly after its release in May. Sia and Ziegler proved that they could perform this song just as well live as in the video in their series of joint live performances throughout the year.

“7/11” by Beyoncé

Not only was she the queen of the entire year, Bey also gave us 15 new shades of her when she dropped the music video for her 2014 release “7/11.”
