This year’s MTV Video Music Award nominations have been announced and with Beyoncé leading the pack thanks to her surprise visual album it looks like there’s going to be some tough competition for those Moonmen awards.
The most coveted award of the night is, of course, Video of the Year and we here at Premiere One PR have decided to give the lowdown on each of the five nominated videos.
- Beyoncé feat Jay Z ‘Drunk In Love’
Released as the first single from her self-titled visual album, ‘Drunk In Love’ shows Bey rolling around in the sand and sea looking as flawless as ever. The black and white clip proves that The Carters are the hottest couple in hip hop and is a hot contender for Video of the Year.
- Iggy Azalea feat Charlie XCX ‘Fancy’
Inspired by the classic 90’s film ‘Clueless,’ Iggy Azalea dons her matching blazer and mini skirt in an homage to main character Cher while she prances down high school halls with her friends flicking her long blonde hair. Basically, the video for ‘Fancy’ is everything.
- Sia ‘Chandelier’
Sia has usually stayed in the background writing incredible pop songs for other artists but this year has seen her release another album and step out into the limelight again. The video for ‘Chandelier’ may not be as elaborate as others but it gives the song a chance to shine and that choreography is something else.
- Miley Cyrus ‘Wrecking Ball’
Ever the Queen of controversy, Ms. Cyrus caused a bit of a ruckus with the release of ‘Wrecking Ball.’ The beauty and vulnerability of the ballad was somewhat left behind when Miley came swinging in totally nude on an actual wrecking ball. It may not be to everyone’s taste but boy is it memorable… like most things Miley does.
- Pharrell Williams ‘Happy’
Pharrell created one of the biggest songs and videos of 2014 with ‘Happy.’ All over the world, people from different nationalities created their versions of the hit song. It completely took over Youtube, our TV screens and social media pages to become the most uplifting video of all the contenders for Video of the Year.
Let us know who you think deserves to win this year’s MTV VMA Video of the Year.
