Time calls Beyonce's "Lemonade" the best pop music video of 2016 and we agree
é2016 has been filled with the highest of highs and some of the most polarizing lows, but that is essentially the circle of life. But one thing that remains a constant in our life is music. So it’s no surprise that Time calls this epic song from this epic album by this perfect artist, the best pop music video of 2016. Can you guess? We’ll give you a hint. Although this album was considered a 2016 classic, you will definitely continue to get into formation in 2017!
OKAY IT’S BEYONCÉ. Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” was voted the #1 music video of 2016. But check out the rest of the top 10 list below.
10. Kanye West, “Fade”
We would all be lying if we did not admit that Teyana Taylor gave us body goals for life! We’re not sure if Kanye meant for Taylor to upstage him in his own video, but knowing ‘Ye every move he makes in his music career is calculated. If so we thank him, because that was the push we needed to get our health into shape like yesterday!
9. Grimes, “Kill v. Maim”
What do you get when you mix suicide squad, disco vampires, and a dystopian punk fantasy world? A Grimes video of course! Grimes is known for her avante guard visuals and she definitely did not disappoint us with this video.
8. Rihanna. “Work” feat. Drake
Only Rihanna could produce a hit that will forever change the word work! This song was one of the biggest hits of 2016 and we have to admit it was that much better hearing Drake on the beat. There’s no doubt that we will be work work work work working the rest of 2016 and all the way through 2017!
7. Fifth Harmony “Work From Home” feat. Ty Dolla $ign
Before 2016 we thought Fifth Harmony was the girl group for our sisters and cousins, but every time “Work From Home” came on, we couldn’t help but turn up the radio and play this song full blast. I mean seriously the next time you want to skip work and stay home with your boyfriend tell him that he doesn’t have to go to work, but he’s got to put in the work! We can bet he’ll call in a sick day for sure.
6. Chance the Rapper, “Angels” feat. Saba
Coloring Book was the sophomore album that we needed from Chance the Rapper. Throughout all of the craziness of 2016, every time we played this album, it transported us back to simpler times. So we are super glad that “Angels” made this list. We dare you to turn it on and not break into a smile and whip out your best moves.
5. Years and Years “Desire” feat. Tove Lo
What happens when you mix two of your up and coming favorites? You get a song by Years and Years and Tove Lo! This song is an absolute banger and the collaboration we did not deserve.
4. Desiigner, “Panda”
Did a party exist without yelling panda, panda, panda, panda? We think not!
3. M.I.A, “Go Off”
We totally wish M.I.A came out with more music! Her style is out of this world and her sound is super unique.
2. David Bowie, “Lazarus”
“Lazarus” came out two days before David Bowie passed and the video is very prophetic. At some points Bowie is in the bed with his eyes bandaged and he is reaching towards the heavens.
1. Beyonce, “Lemonade”
It is no surprise that they put the entire album as number one pop songs this 2016. This album was so revolutionary and gave us quotes for years to come. We will be getting into formation forever!
At the end of the day whether you agree or disagree with this list, you have to admit these songs were in rotation all year! 2017 has a lot to live up to because 2016 may have been one of the best music years yet.
