This was a pretty great year in music, and while the output in music video was not totally 100, these ten (plus) rose above.
I can't compete with Beyoncé: Make sure you see the GRAMMY-nominated Lemonade and this, its best(?) vid.
BLACKPINK burst onto the scene with Boombayah and Whistle, and they seem ready to slay 2017.
I'm sure Nobody Speak will look quaint in 2017, what with #HitlerJr in ascendance.
Another GRAMMY nominee, Gosh sees Paris come alive in a Chinese province, in a video that proves Gavras may (may) be the next big director to come from mv.
Lil Yachty, Quavo, and Skippa da Flippa riot in an ice rink in this iconic clip.
A little bit Talking Heads, and very cool, Mimi Cave's video for Lucius kept me going for half of 2016.
One of the few clips to ref the ascendant #HitlerInTraining, and keep you pretty, uh, stoked besides.
Still inspirational, OK Go make another pretty brilliant clip (one of two) for 2016.
Solange shows that she has what it takes to take over music video in these two clips from her album A Seat at the Table.
Fade is futher proof that Kanye has a (mostly) winning hand, here.
