Are music videos a lost art in 2015? With MTV and VH1 airing more reality television programs than actual music videos, it is no surprise that a lot of artists have abandoned the music video route of promotion. Fortunately not all artists subscribe to such logic. Many superstar artists still know that fans crave visuals, even if they are streaming it from their phone or tablet.And a lot of emerging artists know that creating some dope visuals are a great way to gain exposure and put your name on the map. Check out our favorite music videos from this past year and see who got our number one spot.

Starting off your week is a brand new song, and self-direct video to go with it, from British singer, FKA Twigs. The video (and track), titled ‘Glass & Patron’, is an official music video for today’s YouTube Music Awards. YouTube couldn’t have made a better pick, as FKA dropped a number of great music videos last year. This is also a great taste of new music from FKA, ever since she gave us her debut album LP1 in 2014. Watch FKA Twigs’ ‘Glass & Patron’ video below.
