David Guetta f/ Sam Martin "Dangerous" (Jonas Akerlund, dir.)

Something tells me Monsieur Guetta is gunning to get back to the top of the superstar DJ list (look out, Calvin Harris). His previous clip had Ray Liotta. In this one, DG takes to the track — this was shot at Circuito de Jerez in Andalucia, Spain — for an "homage" to Formula One racing (and perhaps Rush, too) with James Purefoy as his rival.

Robin Thicke "Get Her Back" (Jonas Akerlund, dir.)

Can Robin Thicke ichat his way back into estranged wife Paula Patton's heart? Does looking battered and bruised and nude (from the waist up) in the video help the cause? What about the similarly naked woman that's here?

Such are the blurred lines in what's promised to be the opening salvo for new album Paula, which maybe you'll find to be the most romantic "I want her back" adventure since Lloyd Dobler held that Boombox aloft.

WATCH IT: Maroon 5 f/ Wiz Khalifa "Payphone" (Sam Bayer, dir.)

The splashy new Maroon 5 video is muscularly packed with enough car chases, guns and logic leaps to shame the trailer for a summer tent-pole action movie. Director Sam Bayer really exploits the music video biz's new 'it's only on the internet' freedom with more pistols, AKs and shotguns than an early NWA clip, plus Adam Levine stepping away from the set of The Voice to ignore an explosion as only a true star can. --> watch "Payphone"

WATCH IT: N.E.R.D. "Hot N Fun" (Jonas Akerlund, dir.)

Imagine the desert car ride from Red Hot Chili Peppers "Scar Tissue", but with an apocalyptic Fear/Loathing vibe, some psychedelic animated overlays and the sorts of fashionably attractive women you'd expect to be riding and partying with N.E.R.D. Even if it's not clear where everybody is going (here's a hint: it seems to be a fiery place), the video certainly lives up to the song title "Hot N Fun". --> watch "Hot N Fun"
