Female artists have dominated this week’s newsfeed with the release of some pretty exciting music videos. Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Doja Cat have all made waves on social media with the release of their latest videos which each feature a special visual experience that you’ll just have to see to understand.
Many wondered if the Mother Monster, Lady Gaga would ever return to her campy and theatrical roots after the release of her much more stripped down album, “Joanne,” as well as her wildly successful role in the film, “A Star is Born.”
After weeks of social media teases, Gaga finally announced a new single, “Stupid Love,” as well as a music video. And, if you thought Gaga was going to give us another pop country crossover, you would be wrong. If Gaga’s “Born This Way” era was a favorite of yours, you won’t be disappointed. The song is beyond catchy and the music video classic Gaga camp.
The video was directed by Daniel Askill, and it was entirely filmed on an iPhone 11 Pro.
After months of begging from fans for Taylor Swift to make “The Man” a single, Swift came through, releasing a very theatrical video bringing attention to double standards when it comes to gender.
Throughout the video Swift’s alter ego, Tyler, demonstrates notorious male behaviors, indicative of “alpha types,” And, if you were wondering why the man featured in the video looks vaguely familiar, it’s because underneath all of those prosthetics, “the man” is Taylor Swift.
The video also takes subtle swipes at Scooter Braun, the man who purchased ownership of Swift’s last six albums in a deal that Swift allegedly was not made aware of.
The video was directed, written, owned and starring Swift, but it also featured Dwayne Johnson who voiced “the man.”
Earlier this week, Doja Cat released the highly-anticipated video for her hit single “Say So.” Odds are you’ve heard the song before if you’re familiar at all with the social media app, Tik Tok. The song has gone viral on that platform, even inspiring a new dance trend.
The disco-influenced track is set to a 70s-inspired video filled with vibrant colors and tons of makeup and fashion looks that are probably being used as inspo right now.
The video also features Haley Sharpe, known on Tik Tok as @yodellinghaley. Sharpe helped “Say So” go viral on the app with a dance she created for the song. Doja Cat can be seen doing the iconic dance in the video as well.
