The 5 Best Music Videos Of The Week

3 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Each week I find myself writing about how much I hate performance-driven music videos but present you with an exception. I think it’s time to admit defeat and realise that there is actually a large population of artists and music video directors who can get creative and pull them off. Although I feel a little foolish for having this initial hatred for them I am also thrilled to see a number of videos surprising me each week as well as what feels like a sudden influx of them. It’s great to see that all hope hasn’t been lost just yet. I can’t believe I even included a video which features both Jessie J and Nicki Minaj (I have nothing against Ariana Grande, yet). There’s just something really empowering about watching an all female ensemble come together and celebrate different kinds of femininity and female sexuality simultaneously. »

Racy MTV VMAs performer Nicki Minaj wasn't the only celebrity to have a wardrobe malfunction this week. Actress Paula Patton attended an HBO party following the Emmy Awards wearing a sheer mini dress that left little to the imagination. Its horizontal black striped pattern appeared to have failed to strategically hide her nipples, which were on full display. Patton, whose estranged husband Robin Thicke made headlines last year with his own raunchy VMAs performance with Miley Cyrus, appeared unaware, or unbothered, by the nip slip, posing confidently and smiling radiantly amid the flashes of the photographer's cameras at the bash, which marked her first major public appearance in six months.

27 August 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

How has it been having “Shake It Off” stuck in your head this past week and a half? If it makes you feel any better, you are not alone. After its first full week out, the song jumped from No. 69 on the Billboard Hot 100 to No. 1, on the back of strong sales, radio airplay, streaming, and basically everything else. This is Taylor Swift’s second No. 1, after "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." Coming in at No. 2 is Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda," which was helped by its record-breaking video. Magic!'s "Rude" dropped to No. 5 because of Nicki and Taylor, and because reggae is exclusively for summer breaks.  »

Taylor Swift’s complete switch to pop is being met with resounding success: Her new single, “Shake It Off,” debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 today. The song, which was bolstered by immediate radio play, sales, and streaming, following its release on Aug. 18, is Swift’s second Hot 100 chart topper, following 2012’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” The single sold 544,000 downloads this past week, the greatest weekly tally so far in 2014, according to Billboard. For trivia buffs, “Shake,” the first single from Swift’s fifth studio album, “1989,” out Oct. 27, is only the 22nd of the 1,038 songs that have topped the Billboard Hot 100 to bow at No. 1. The last, coincidentally, was Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” in March 2013. Billboard created a fun list of the most successful chart songs with "Shake" in the title here. “Shake’s” good news is bad news for Nicki Minaj, whose “Anaconda” soars 39- »
