This week upon epic videos being released, we get to see two awesome videos: Taylor Swift’s star-packed “Bad Blood” extravaganza and quickly followed by the instantly meme-able clip for Nicki Minaj and Beyonce’s “Feeling Myself.” These two music videos showcase a handful of the biggest music stars on the planet, and approach their featured songs using wildly different (but equally compelling) visual methods. But which memorable music video of the do you think wins the (still young) week?
Swift’s highly anticipated “Bad Blood” video was preceded by weeks of personally released teaser images that confirmed appearances from Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Hayley Williams and Ellie Goulding, among others; when the music video finally was unveiled to kick off the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, Swift’s latest1989 visual proved to be a highly stylized action clip, with the singer’s many guest stars flaunting their unique ferocities. Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar also popped up to deliver his bars on the “Bad Blood” remix, adding a new dimension to the anthem and putting his stamp on the girl power expo.
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce have once again teamed up to ooze effortless cool all over the “Feeling Myself” video, which was filmed during Coachella last month. The cut from Minaj’s The Pinkprint album, which premiered exclusively on Tidal on Monday (May 18), finds the two divas flexing in a kiddie pool, mean-mugging next to various classic cars, rocking squirt guns and slow-winding before feasting upon hamburgers. In other words, “Feeling Myself” finds Bey and Nicki being cooler than darn near anyone on the planet.
However, is the “Feeling Myself” video cooler than Taylor’s epic “Bad Blood” production? Let us know your opinion in the comments.
