Ten Music Video Highlights of 2010
8. Cee Lo Green – F*ck You
When Cee Lo released such a classy sounding song as F*ck You (Forget You, for the masses *yawn*), everyone was buzzing~ Even more when the typographical version of the video came out. Not to say the regular “official” version [MV] is bad, but the use of the lyrics gave it a little UMPH and made the whole concept of the song stand out from the bunch.
7. 2NE1 – Clap your Hands
For a girl group that just released their first (proper) album late in 2010, 2NE1 has really made a difference. 1. They’re being pushed internationally, with an official YouTube channel that uploads their shows, and sometimes subtitles — something fans mostly do — follow that example. 2. 2NE1 shows us that girl groups don’t necessarily need to be cute and huggable. Girls are rocking.
Plus, they released a really great bunch of music videos to promote their music. Starting with Try to Follow Me [MV], and the triple-threat release of Clap your Hands, Go Away [MV], and Can’t Nobody [MV] which were launched one right after the other.
