Videos of the Week August 28th

The week featured a 60/40 split between new music videos and EDM promos. Leading the way on the music front was The Weeknd's new video for Tell Your Friends that features production from the Louis Vuitton Don himself. There's something to his mix of pillow talk and vulgarity that comes off as unique because he's such a talented vocalist. In other new music, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are back to making their own brand of interesting music. Downtown is part Uptown Funk, part quirky Hip Hop and an overall fun track. If you were hoping for a theatrical video that will leave a lasting impression, they sure did pull it off. Rounding out the new music of the week was Lil Wayne's collaboration with Charlie Puth. His name has been out there a lot lately, but if you haven't heard Charlie's track with Wiz Khalifa commemorating Paul Walker's life, you need to give it a listen to gain an appreciation for his vocal ability.

If you're as enamored with festival recap videos, then you can join me in wishing you made it to Boom, Belgium for Tommorrowland. The way they chronicled the journey through the stories of two women who attended the festival was cool. And last, but not least, if you're curious who the big money makers in electronic music were, Forbes has you covered. A couple things I learned from the piece: 1) I definitely would not have guessed that Tiesto makes twice as much as deadmau5. 2) Who knew Steve Aoki was such an awesome entrepreneur? and 3) Calvin Harris made nearly twice as much as Tiesto. That's racks...on racks...on racks...and then some...#Forbes
