As another year comes to a close, all of your social media feeds are probably flooded with year-end lists, and we decided to contribute with our own selection of the Top 25 Music Videos of 2015. After the jump, you’ll find some of the finest videos that dropped this year, from a very wide range of artists, including Le Youth, The Weeknd, Drake, Disclosure, Kendrick Lamar, and more. It’s not a comprehensive list, but it contains the videos that we thought were most creative, well-directed, and fitting to the themes of the songs. We hope 2015 was a good year for everyone, and wish you all a very safe and happy 2016! Cheers.
