Benjamin Booker 'Believe' Directed by James Lees

New Orleans-based artist Benjamin Booker has shared the music video for his song “Believe.” In the clip, directed by James Lees, Booker plays a soldier who undergoes military training. Lees said in a statement, “We wanted to create something inherently musical and entertaining whilst still being a meditation on the themes within the song. Being lost and directionless and the inherent human need to find a sense of belonging.” [Pitchfork]

Bebe Rexha ft. Florida Georgia Line 'Meant To Be' Directed by Sophie Muller

Sophie Muller teams up with Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line on the new video for "Meant To Be." Shot in Nashville, the video reimagines Bebe's path to fame, depicting the Brooklyn-native as a hitchhiking waitress who stumbles across Florida Georgia Line performing in the back of a bar. Showing that - no matter what Bebe's background - she would have found her way to the stage.

Bonobo ft. Rhye - 'Break Apart' Directed by Spencer Creigh

What do you get when you take three diverse couples, lock them in a budget motel room for 24 hours and throw away the key? You get Bonobo's new music video directed by Spencer Creigh and what a mighty fine one it is. Spencer locked the three sets of lovers in the same room (but at different times) for 24 hours with no phone and let the results play out for itself.

Andrew Donoho and Tomás Whitmore each take home Moon People Sunday night, Andrew Donoho won his second Moon Person, and Tomás Whitmore won his first, at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards.

MTV also decided to recognize all six videos nominated in the Best Fight Against The System category, including Tomás Whitmore's powerful video for “Immigrants (We Get the Job Done)” from The Hamilton: An American Musical Mixtape.

The night also featured a live medley performance from P!nk, who recreated elements of Georgia Hudson's "What About Us" music video during her electric 7 minute Video Vanguard performance.

P!nk 'What About Us' Directed by Georgia Hudson

Georgia Hudson creates a poignant and poetic piece for P!nk's new music video “What About Us” Combining an emotional narrative, explosive raw performance, colour, fashion, and dance, "What About Us" is a video that feels as big as the song, while also leaving room for moments of intimacy and emotional depth. P!nk, who later this month will be honoured with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2017 MTV VMAs, strengthens her music video legacy with Georgia's powerful, cinematic, and timely film.
