Madison Beer f/ Offset "Hurts Like Hell" (Mike Harris, dir.)

Madison Beer’s new single “Hurts Like Hell ft. Offset” makes its debut today in an intense new music video directed by Lord Danger’s Mike Harris. Concepted by Madison and Harris, the piece harnesses the emotional power of Beer’s song in a story of abuse upended by a mightier force.  Fear of emboldened women has been politically framed as witchcraft for centuries, and “Hurts Like Hell” confronts this directly.

Taylor Swift "Out of the Woods" (Joseph Kahn, dir.)

It's a fairy tale where Taylor Swift doesn't need to wait for any Prince Charming to save her in this latest epic collaboration with director Joseph Kahn. She just needs to decide to turn around and move on from her entanglements. That journey is anything but easy, however, as our heroine goes from the oceans edge to an icy peak and into a forest that's invariably filled with snarling dogs, menacing fire and malicious brances (note: I'd reference Evil Dead her, but why start the New Year that twisted, right?).

Taylor Swift "Wildest Dreams" (Joseph Kahn, dir.)

Can Taylor Swift and director Joseph Kahn do big and intimate at the same time in a video? Of course, they can. Welcome to Africa for this period piece where Taylor is a classic movie starlet falling into and away from her leading man, Scott Eastwood. Stay tuned through the end, since there's one last chance for romance at the fateful, yet chilly movie premiere.

Taylor Swift "Bad Blood" Breaks Viewership Records

Yes, we know Taylor Swift is popular, but just to make sure you realize how big she is on the heels of her star-studded "Bad Blood" video, take a look at the numbers:

  • 20 million - "Bad Blood" broke the 24 hour VEVO record for most views in one day, getting nearly 20 million views in one day.
  • 37 million - Total "Bad Blood" views as I write this, four days after the premiere.
  • 5 billion - Total view count for all her videos.
  • 11 million - Total estimated viewers to the Billboard Music Awards, which televised the exclusive world premiere of the video.

It's like there's the music business, and then there's the Taylor Swift business, with the only similarity being that they use some of the same notes... 

Hi Hey Hello - A Musical Short Film by Director Joseph Kahn

Samsung GALAXY S4 presents Hi Hey Hello, a musical short film

Billed as a musical short film, Hi Hey Hello is at its most base level a showcase for the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone, but it's much more than that: It's a clever look at how modern romance comes together these days with the equal doses of technology, fantasy and imagination. It's also a showcase for director Joseph Kahn, who strings it all together with a similar blend of skill and smarts.
