Katy Perry f/ Nicki Minaj "Swish Swish" (Dave Meyers, dir.)

Just when it seems like Katy Perry and team are gonna stumble, they pull off a slam dunk. "Swish Swish" is a star-studded, comedic basketball romp that's massive, but also laced with perfect details that keeps pushing to absurd new heights over its 6+ minute runtime. Cameos of note include Molly Shannon, Terry Shannon, announcers Rich Eisen and Bill Walton, football star Rob Gronkowski, Doug The Pug, and, of course, Backpack Kid.

Halsey "New Americana" (Jodeb, dir.)

Hero to some, heretic to others, say hello to Halsey who's got an anthem that seems spot-on for a post-Lorde world. The obvious reference point here is Divergent, with a spark of Joan Of Arc martyrdom, as a civilization rallies around Halsey against a totalitarian force.

Sound over the top? Well, the end hints that it was all a dream, even if it's one that you would never find in Word-Up magazine.
