Creativity blossomed in April, suggesting that this may be a bumper year for music videos.
Videos of the Month - December 2018
Another playlist on the video output of 2018, and this is the one that's all about the final month of the year. As the holiday season loomed, December was the month that saw a customary drop in the number of releases. But without question, this was a month where some real quality videos came out - including some towering works.
From the return of Gesaffelstein at the beginning of the month, to the return of the Raconteurs at the end, December was also when we saw a huge new video for Mark Ronson & Miley Cyrus, and a record-breaking one for Ariana Grande's thank u, next (above): the most YouTube views in the first day of release, ever.
And there was a bully-battling Emma Stone in a new Paul McCartney video, a soul-stirring marching band for Justice, Rosalia drowning in her own tears, Matty Healy battling his imagination in the latest 1975 video. Plus Eminem, Jorja Smith, the Prodigy, Son Lux, and fab videos for up-and-coming artists Beabadoobee, Pretty Vicious, Shame and Yxng Bane.
All in all, a mighty fine way to end the year...
