Fresh off opening the VMAs, Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj light up the screen in the explosive video for “Bang Bang.” The divas come together for one big party in the Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip, which was shot on the Paramount lot in Hollywood.

Jessie J pulls up to a block party on a hot summer day in her pink whip. “She really brings everybody together and they kinda start this movement through the city,” she said.

Ariana gets dolled up in her pink loft, while Nicki arrives to the party in a helicopter.

The ladies meet up on a rooftop for the final scene of the night.

Teyana Taylor

Sensual seduction. Teyana Taylor is a wanted woman in the cinematic video for “Maybe” featuring Pusha T and Yo Gotti. Inspired by Eyes Wide Shut and Sin City, the dark and sexy scenes play out like a comic book.

G.O.O.D. Music’s First Lady slips into character as three different assassins (herself, Jacqu√©line Mercury, and Greyla Greathouse), rocking different looks while seducing her men. A blonde Teyana performs a striptease and hunts down her target (Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks) at a masquerade ball.

“It was like a comic book theme so I got to play the beautiful assassin,” she said. “The look that I was going for was the whole underworld, kinda sassy, kinda sexy place.”

Teyana’s debut album VII is due October 21 via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam.

Video: Jasmine V f/ Kendrick Lamar – ‘That’s Me Right There’

Jasmine V

Jasmine V keeps her love locked down in the Gil Green-directed video for “That’s Me Right There” featuring Kendrick Lamar.

The 20-year-old L.A. songstress, who played Justin Bieber’s love interest in the “Baby” video, heats up the screen with a new man. They cozy up on the basketball court and on the hood of an old school Chevy, while Jasmine busts out some fierce moves. With a hoodie covering his eyes, King Kendrick makes a dark and mysterious cameo seated behind the wheel of a car.

“‘That’s Me Right There’ is talking about being confident in a relationship,” Jasmine told Rap-Up TV. “Basically saying you can leave your man or girl wherever and at the end of the day, nobody can take them from you.”

Jasmine was excited to collaborate with the Compton MC. “He’s amazing. So low key and he’s so quiet, but he’s such a humble guy,” she said. “I was definitely honored and blessed to be on the same set as him.”

Her debut EP is due later this summer via Interscope Records featuring contributions from Ne-Yo, Jeremih, Problem, Harmony Samuels, Sam Hook, and Soundz.
