Lenny Kravitz "The Chamber [NSFW]" (Anthony Mandler, dir.)

Twenty-five years ago, when he himself was twenty-five (!!!!), Lenny Kravitz debuted with a plea for all of us to let love rule. Twenty-five years later, Lenny learns that love is a dangerous thing in, by far, his steamiest video ever — and that's including "Black Velveteen".

Shot by Anthony Mandler in Paris — partially in Lenny's own residence there.

A Massive Star-Studded Trailer for Jay Z & Beyonce "Run" (Melina Matsoukas, dir.)

Holy crap. An all-star, action packed trailer for Jay Z and Beyonce first feature film coming... NEVER. So, breath a sigh of relief, since all involved surely know that this compilation of action flick cliches would be a clunker even by Hollywood crap standards.

That said: We get Beyonce at her hottest, Jay at his most badass and cast that would be the envy of any blockbuster: Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Guillermo Diaz, Emmy Rossum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Rashida Jones and Kidada Jones

And if you want to see Jay and Bey' on the run together: Go get your tickets for their tour — which is what this trailer is really meant to promote.

Lana Del Rey "Tropico" (Anthony Mandler, dir.)

Lana Del Rey's "Tropico" is more ambitious that almost any other music video you've seen this year — and not just because it's 30 minutes long. Director Anthony Mandler and Ms. LDR create their a sort of Pop Bible here, starting with creation and a Garden of Eden, with Jesus, John (Wayne), Marilyn (not Manson) and Elvis (certainly not Costello) peering down from up high.

And that's just the first couple minutes before the Fall... The rest is much more sinful, believe me.

Consider this a must-watch, especially if you have an appetite for a proudly blasphemous and cracked artfilm that should tickle fans of  Tony Scott and Oliver Stone's more visionary works.

Jay Z & Justin Timberlake "Holy Grail" (Anthony Mandler, dir.)

There's a last days of Xanadu vibe here, with Jay Z and Justin Timberlake all alone at the top of the world, surrounded by the baubles that come with great wealth and success — an effect that's further emphasized by the periodically slurred-down audio.

Also of note is that this is the first Facebook exclusive premiere, with the video available exclusively via Facebook and giving Jay Z and Justin Timberlake unfettered reach to their combined 42 million followers (which if you know anything about how Facebook posts are limited unless boosted, you know the value of that promo is huge).

And it could be a good case study into whether people care about where or how they watch videos, so long as all the sharing/embedding features they expect are supported.

A$AP Rocky f/ Skrillex "Wild for the Night" (Chris Robinson & A$AP, dir.)

Wild For The Night (Explicit)

Director Chris Robinson takes superstars A$AP Rocky and Skrillex to the Dominican Republic for the gorgeous-meets-dangerous scenery and the grimiest basement party of all time. The vibe is fun (assuming City of God is your kind of fun) and the partying truly epic - plus you get to see Skrillex in his natural habitat, baking in the tropical sun. 

Tate Stevens "Holler If You're With Me" (Phil Andelman, dir.)

Tate Stevens - Holler If You're With Me

Here's another Grammy video/commercial, but it's notable for a weather angle. A little wind storm — actually, a massive wind storm — wasn't enough to dissuade X-Factor winner Tate Stevens, director Phil Andelmanand crew. Instead they just go with the flow, literally, pushing aside the orginal bonfire treatment in favor of focusing on the windstorm that whipped through the Simi Valley location.
