Lil Boosie, K Camp, and YG

After spawning remixes by everyone from Rick Ross to Tiny, K Camp rolls out the official remix video to his street anthem “Cut Her Off.” Shot on a soundstage in L.A. last month, the Michael Mihail-directed clip co-stars Lil Boosie, YG, and Too $hort.

John Legend follows up his chart-topping smash “All of Me” with “You & I (Nobody in the World),” another ballad off his album Love in the Future. The powerful and stirring video opens with his supermodel wife Chrissy Teigen before showcasing women of all races, ages, and sizes.

Their sad faces turn into smiling faces as they embrace their differences, flaws and all. Legend and his wife share laughs in one scene, while couples kiss and mothers hug their kids.

To go along with his uplifting message, Legend has launched #OperationGirl Charity Challenge, a fundraising campaign for charities focused on women and girls.
