R&B Video of the Year – The BoomBox Fan Choice Awards
The candidates for The BoomBox Fan Choice Award for R&B Video of the Year are just as diverse as the artists who made them. The visuals range from twerktastic to dramatic, but which one is the best? You can choose which one of the 10 nominees takes home the crown.
The nominee with the twerking visual is obviously Rihanna for her aquatic, stripper-filled ‘Pour It Up.’ While there’s not as much aggressive dancing here, Robin Thicke, T.I. and Pharrell manage to stir up more controversy in the nearly-nude version of their ‘Blurred Lines’ video. John Legend‘s ‘Made to Love’ also featured nudity, but in a more YouTube-friendly fashion.
Solange takes a trip to Cape Tow, South Africa, while Janelle Monae gets funky with Erykah Badu in the trippy visuals for ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ Then there’s Justin Timberlake and Jay Z, who emanate class and decadence in the David Fincher-directed ‘Suit & Tie’ video.
There are good times to be had on Bilal‘s ‘Back to Love’ and Daft Punk’s shimmery ‘Get Lucky’ featuring Pharrell and Nile Rodgers. Luke James and the Weeknd aren’t as fortunate as the former gets punched out for love in ‘Oh God,’ and the Toronto crooner is as emo as ever in ‘Live For.’
