The Weeknd, "False Alarm"
A bank robbery, hostage situation, police shootout, and car chase all go down in this super-cinematic visual that plays out like an ultra-violent video game from a first-person POV. Fatalities included.
Kid Cudi, "Frequency"
Watch Cudi dance through a dark, moonlit forest until he happens upon its inhabitants: covered in jewels, scaling and spinning stripper poles, smothered in black-light reactive paint, and draped in sheets.
Pusha T, "H.G.T.V."
Shot entirely in portrait orientation, the camera spins over and under Pusha as he sits and spits, each time in a slightly different setting when the lens returns to him, from a classroom desk while he rocks a fitted to an office chair with an ottoman as he sports a suit.
Danny Brown, "Pneumonia"
Suspended in the air by multiple chains bound to him like a marionette, scenes of Brown hanging above a parking lot are spliced with old video footage of Ronald Reagan's presidency.
Marian Hill, "I Want You"
Samantha Gongol and Jeremy Lloyd stay still at the center of a surrounding group of choreographed dancers whose moves seamlessly go from fluid to isolated.
