Right now, I’m enjoying anticipating Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” movie, set to debut as part of Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards, more than I’ll probably enjoy watching the thing.

Vince Staples – “Señorita” Video

Last week, the young Long Beach rap insurgent Vince Staples shared “Señorita,” the first single from his official debut album Summertime ’06. With its sweeping production and its Future hook, the song initially sounded like Staples’ attempt to reach the marketplace. But the song’s brand-new video tells a different story.

The 8 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we’ve got new videos from Lykke Li, Stars, Hooray For Earth, Son Of Kick, and Jargon. A few of the videos I really liked last week had strong actresses stealing the show. Lykke Li does the same here, holding her own in this video with well-regarded Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård. One thing I… More »
