Funky electro and hip hop artist Alice Ivy has a stacked schedule full of tour dates across the country, singles dropping like ‘Chasing Stars’ ft. Bertie Blackman and a debut album releasing February 9, 2018 titled ‘I’m Dreaming’. But amongst all of this amazing news on her plate, she had the time to share with Speaker TV her Top 5 All-Time Video playlist filled with classics and great tracks to start your day off the right way.
5. “Bad Girls” – MIA
‘Where to start on this, the directing is amazing. It’s almost like a multi-million-dollar James Bond film. The location, costumes and action in my eyes make this one of the best music videos of all time.’
4. “Rich Girl” – Gwen Stefani
‘All of the singles on this record have the best video clips. So many different themes and costumes, Gwen Stefani is just a boss.’
3. “Get Right” – Jennifer Lopez
‘I love the fact that there is so much acting in this video clip. The clip is practically a sit down movie.’
2. “Fade” – Kanye West
‘This video is so interesting. The dancing is incredible and a very graphic, visual of the extreme lengths you can take the human body to.’
1. “Don’t Touch My Hair” – Solange
Aesthetically one of the most beautiful video clips of all time. I love the symmetry, the clothing, the locations, the tone… Everything about this video.
