Lil Durk "My Beyonce" (Robert Styles, dir.)

Lil Durk and Dej Loaf take their talents from the booth to the basketball court for their Love & Basketball-inspired video for "My Beyonce."

The rapping couple channels actors Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan in the Robert Styles-directed visual, particularly the scene from the 2000 film where the characters take it from the hoop to the bedroom for a steamy one-on-one match.

Justin Bieber "What Do You Mean?" (Brad Furman, dir.)

So Justin’s actually working on making quality videos, right? That’s the lesson coming from this and Mr. Bieber’s recent Moonman-winning video “Where Are U Now.” Here, Brad Furman directs Bieber in a somewhat dangerous liaison with model Xenia Deli. And the result is a further step forward from his early vids. You can sense he’s maturing, which is welcome news to some of us.
