Here are some of the music videos that we think are most memorable!
Tell us what’s your favorite memorable music video!
1. “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” by Missy Elliott
From the iconic garbage suit, to the fish eye view Missy Elliott’s “The Rain” music video will forever go down in history as one of the most memorable music videos of all time!
2. “On and On” by Erykah Badu
The moment was far more than just a very loose interpretation of (or homage to) the film The Color Purple; it marked the start of Erykah Badu’s tyrannical rule over all neo-soul performers for the ensuing ten years.
3. “Remember the Time” by Michael Jackson
“Remember the Time” isn’t just a music video, this was a short film with a lot cameos of several heavy-hitters in the entertainment industry, such as Eddie Murphy, Iman, Tommy “Tiny” Lister and Magic Johnson.
Michael Jackson was master of giving fans top-notch visuals as he extracted a genius story plot, dance numbers, theatrics, and etc. from a 4 minute song.
It’s truly a testament to how talented of a performer
4. “No Scrubs” by TLC
After seeing TLC’s “No Scrubs” video, we all wanted to live in the famous future space station!
5. “What’s My Name?” by DMX
If you ever wanted to get hyped up while watching a hip-hop music video, “What’s My Name” by DMX will surely get you riled up!
6. “Try Again” by Aaliyah
The late Aaliyah really became a futuristic pop star when “Try Again” was released.
From the video’s setting of a hall of mirrors, and a room with a shallow pool to Romeo Must Die star, Jet-Li cameo and Timbaland’s adlibs, and Aaliyah’s signature look this music video captured millions and further pushed Aaliyah into stardom.
7. “Pass The Courvoisier Part II” by Busta Rhymes
Rapper Busta Ryhmes is known to have out-of-the-box music video concepts and “Pass the Courvoisier Part II” is one of the most memorable music videos of the early 2000s.
This music video will go down in music video history due to Mr. T, Spliff Star, Mo’Nique, Kym Whitley, and Jamie Foxx made cameo appearances in the video, which was influenced by the glorious films, Harlem Nights and Rush Hour 2.
8. “Doo Wop (That Thing)” by Lauryn Hill
The music video of “Doo-Wop” by Lauryn Hill will forever live in our hearts.
We can’t get enough of the concept of showing two different generations of men and women, to the singer’s message: “Don’t be a hard rock when you really are a gem!”
9. “All I Need” by Method Man ft. Mary J. Blige
If you’re a hip-hop fan doesn’t matter where you are, you’ll always sing and dance to “All I Need” by Method Man ft. Mary J. Blige!
It is a classic 90s bop!
10. “Roses” by Outkast
Words can’t describe how we feel about Outkast’s “Roses” music video.
From it’s clever references to West Side Story and Grease we get to see how Andre 3000 and Big Boi come together and create this amazing visual for their double-album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.
Were you a Speakerboxxx or a Love Below fan?
