Pregnant ladies, washed-up rock stars, and social media addicts -- oh my!
These are just some of the topics tackled by FKA twigs, Ed Sheeran and Charli XCX in their new music videos, all released on Monday as part of the YouTube Music Awards. Rather than a real-life ceremony, YouTube opted to highlight this year's honorees by creating an online-only event and unveil a slew of new music videos from the site's hottest artists. Other acts featured include Martin Garrix feat. Usher, Migos, Cahoots, Action Bronson, and Lindsey Stirling, among others.
In Sheeran's new video for "Bloodstream," Ray Liotta plays an aging rocker with a penchant for women and booze. Watch below.
Thanks to Ray Liotta for an amazing performance, what a champ— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) March 23, 2015
And in Charli XCX's socially-conscious "Famous" video, it's social media (and perhaps YouTube itself) that's killing our youth.
FKA twigs gives birth in her "Glass & Patron" video (more on that here), but it's Garrix's "Don't Look Down" video that provides a lighthearted palate cleanser for the playlist. Watch below.
