Videos of the Week June 16th

I'm bringing a truly unique top five this week. Led by some quirkiness, a few music videos, and a whole lot of race related content, it was an eclectic week. As long as you can get over the fact that Jimmy Fallon and Miley Cyrus didn't do the best job at concealing their true identities, their NYC Subway performance was one of the stand outs from this week. Pretty crazy how quickly a crowd gathered, mostly for Miley, but when Jimmy unmasked himself, people started losing it and breaking out their iPhones.

In the world of music videos, The Weeknd and Buddy released new videos for singles. Of the two, I enjoyed Buddy and Kaytranada's dance heavy video the most. Regarding race it was apropos that the Black Panther trailer came out the week that Ice Cube went on Bill Maher's show to school him on use of the N word. To Bill's credit, he owned up to his mistake and seemed like he was open minded enough to listen to what Cube was saying. As a side note, I really hope Black Panther continues Marvel's dominance in comic book cinema in 2018. Thanks to Wonder Woman, they actually might have competition from DC moving forward...#BlackPanther
