This will haunt your nightmares
Despite what most may say, music videos are still relevant to giving fans the complete experience of an artist’s music. Over the years, there have been some epic visuals created by our favorite artists, groups and bands, whether they be expensive, creative or emotion-provoking. Some artists, however, take things to the next level with their vision and provide us with some of the most disturbing visuals we have ever seen.
Common’s “Testify” video
The rapper’s video for his 2005 single was not only an experience that brought the song to life, but it was considered a “mini-movie.” The visuals feature a younger Taraji P. Henson, who goes to all lengths to frame her significant other for a heinous crime that she actually committed herself. She even admits to committing the crime in the end after the case is closed.
Rihanna’s “B**ch Better Have My Money” video
Rihanna’s hit single of last year was followed up with a 7-minute-long video that brought out a much darker, menacing side of Rihanna’s creativity. The visuals follows RiRi as she kidnaps and tortures a woman in order to gain back an unpaid debt.
Joyner Lucas’s “Ross Capicchioni” video
Joyner Lucas took a true story about Ross Capicchioni and brought it to life in the video for the song named after the victim. Capicchioni was a high school student who was shot multiple times by a friend involved in gang ties, and then left to die alone at an abandoned property.
