After Banks released the SOHN-produced sleeper single, “Waiting Game,” the Los Angeles-based R&B singer has now released an equally dark video to accompany it.
The monochromatically black + white clip is incredibly moody, slightly seductive and tells the tale of a cursed romance – thanks to its film noir vibes, smoldering glances and snow-glittered shots.

Danny Brown has always been off-kilter, and his new video for “ODB” off his upcoming third album Old takes it to the next level. The rapper channels his inner Ol’ Dirty Bastard in the trippy visuals and spits some seriously nasty bars.

The MTV Video Music Awards will be celebrating its 30th anniversary this Sunday (August 25) so I’ve decided to look back throughout the decades to recap one of music’s wildest award shows out there.
From Lady Gaga’s meat dress to Britney Spears breakout “Oops…” performance, there’s a lot that has happened over the last 30 years. Let’s take a look back at some of the craziest OMG moments, appearances and performances in MTV VMA history!
15. Krist Novoselic Gets Hit With His Bass During Nirvana performance (1992)
During the band’s performance of “Lithium,” Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic thought it was a good idea to throw his bass up in the air. Gravity wasn’t on his side when the guitar landed right on his head. Ouch!
14. Rage Against The Machine’s Tim Commerford Climbs On Scaffolding (2000)
RATM’s bassist Tim Commerford was so pissed that his band lost the Best Rock Video to Limp Bizit, that he started to climb on the stage’s scaffolding until security had to get him down.
13. Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” Clone Performance (2000)
This performance was pretty epic, as a sea of Slim Shady clones (with peroxide blonde hair, obviously) gathered inside the VMA Radio City Music Hall venue!
12. Courtney Love Ambushing Madonna’s Interview (1995)
A drunk Courtney Love thought it was a good idea to intrude on Madonna’s VMA interview, which the Queen of Pop was clearly not too pleased about. Love even throws her makeup compact to try to get her attention!
11. Madonna’s Glamourous “Vogue” Performance (1990)
Madonna’s Marie Antoinette-inspired “Vogue” performance was definitely one for the books! It was over-the-top, super-animated and solidified her as the reigning Queen of Pop. Bow down!
Read on for the top 10 VMA moments! Keep reading…
