Chris Brown, "Turn Up the Music" (pictured)
Rihanna, "Where Have You Been"
Jennifer Lopez f/Pitbull, "Dance Again"
There’s nothing like a great dance video; they’ve exhilarating and make you want to jump away from your computer and run to the nearest club.Both Chris Brown’s “Turn Up the Music” and Beyonce’s “Countdown” offer fun dance moves (though Brown is far more accomplished a dancer. We would have switched “Love On Top” into this category and put “Countdown” in best female video). Jennifer Lopez writhes more than she dances in her video, except for a short breakdown. Rihanna’s trippy tribal clip is strong, but we wish it was dancing throughout. Avicii’s “Levels” is the most interesting video conceptually by far, so we give it props in the EDM category.
