Best Music Videos of 2021 Which Made Music Feel More Real

MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name) by Lil Nas X

The most sensational and creative music video of 2021 is, hands down, MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name) by American rapper and singer Lil Nas X. First previewed in a Super Bowl LV commercial, the video and lyrics of the song represents queer themes and takes its name from the 2017 Timothée Chalamet starrer Call Me by Your Name. Filled with biblical references, the song has received 2022 Grammy Awards nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Music Video.

Rumours by Lizzo feat., Cardi B

A collaborative project between Lizzo and Cardi B, Rumours marks Lizzo’s return to the music world after 2 years. The video references the Muses from Disney’s Hercules set against the background of ancient Greece. The song is iconic for its closing scene that resonates with the neoclassical painting Oath of the Horatii by Jacques-Louis David.

We’re Good by Dua Lipa

In terms of storytelling with a twist, Dua Lipa’s We’re Good from her 2021 album Future Nostalgia: The Moonlight Edition deserves a round of applause. A bossa nova and 2000s-styled, midtempo tropical-pop song with trap and reggae rock elements, the song essentially notes the singer fantasizing about an amicable breakup with a former boyfriend but, somewhere as a lobster holds our gaze and attention we realize that a hybrid of The Titanic and The Great Gatsby the music video is.
