10. “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae”
It was the dance seen around the world in 2015, and the video features dancers of all ages showing off how well they can rock the move — even Stephen Curry’s toddler daughter, Riley, flaunted her skills and proved she knows how to break it down by dancing to this track!
Adele’s video JUST came out in October, and there was no time lost in racking up the views! Fans had been waiting to hear new music from Adele for years, and the simplicity and raw emotion in this vid is exactly what we know and love about the British singer.
8. “Worth It”
The ladies of Fifth Harmony had quite the breakout year in 2015, and it was mostly thanks to the success of this single. The five ladies look done up and sexier than ever in the song’s video, and can we just talk about how on point their dancing is?!
Maddie Ziegler was the featured dancer in yet another Sia vid this year, but what got everyone really talking about this one was Shia LaBeouf’s cameo! He danced around in his underwear with the teenager…and, to be honest, it was impossible not to watch!
6. “Hey Mama”
David Guetta and Nicki Minaj — not a bad combination, right?! The video for “Hey Mama” featured all the song’s stars breaking it down in the middle of a desert, and even though it’s a bit quirky, people couldn’t stop clicking replay.
5. “Bad Blood”
Who could forget when Taylor Swift premiered the highly-anticipated clip for her fourth 1989 single?! The video featured her A-list squad, including Selena Gomez, Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and SO many more in the most bada**, girl power vid of all time!
4. “Lean On”
This fun video from Major Lazer and DJ Snake gave us major Egyptian vibes, with braided ladies dancing in togas inside a glamorous palace.
3. “Love Me Like You Do”
It’s one of the biggest songs of the year and that’s mostly because it was connected to one of the biggest movies of the year! Ellie Goulding’s hit was the theme for 50 Shades Of Grey, so her sultry video obviously includes some of the film’s most memorable scenes.
You literally couldn’t turn on the radio without hearing “Sugar” this summer, and fans were clearly LOVING it…because they continuously clicked to watch the video on YouTube! It didn’t hurt that Adam Levine looked dapper as ever while his band crashed real-life weddings!
1. “See You Again”
Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa captured everything the Furious 7 cast was probably feeling after the death of the movie’s star Paul Walker. It was the beyond perfect track to serve as a theme song for the film, and the reminiscent footage of the late actor in the video was the sweetest touch.
