All of these videos have been either on the Billboard’s top ten or on VEVO’s 100 most watched videos list. These videos are definitely the best of 2015. Although each vary in style they all have one similarity and it is one of greatness. Music videos are just as important if not more important than the song because they help to express what the song writer is trying to say in a visual, rather than verbal way. As the year comes to an end it is important that we acknowledge these music videos and the artist for what they have contributed to entertainment this year. The new year will bring in new songs and new videos, but these are some of the best of the year.  2015, a year of great songs accompanied by great videos.
