13 Music Videos From The 2010s You Should Definitely Jam To RN
You're constantly adding new music on Spotify and Apple Music to pump you up during your workouts, and to jam to when you're cooking at home. For each season of your life, you create new playlists with the latest hits, too. For that reason, you may have forgotten about music videos from the 2010s that are beyond iconic, and were once stuck in your head on the regular.
Do you remember blasting "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen while driving around your hometown with your high school besties? Did you and your college roommates listen to "Formation" by Beyoncé before a night out, or dance to the pop hits that took over the radio for a whole decade like "We Found Love" by Calvin Harris and Rihanna or "What Do You Mean?" by Justin Bieber? Those tracks really defined that era of the music industry, and brought you endless amounts of entertainment and joy.
You likely still remember all the lyrics to those songs and can picture the colorful scenes from the music videos. When you have some spare time, do yourself a favor and take a walk down Nostalgia Lane. Jam to these 13 music videos from the 2010s that were once the soundtrack of your life.
