7. Justin Bieber, "Sorry"

Director: Parris Goebel
Forget lyric videos as the quick fix when labels need to fill the content hole after a single drops; "Sorry" proves that what we really need more of are official dance videos. The numbers don't lie: As of this writing, the "dance version" of "Sorry" has more than 269 million more views on Bieber's YouTube channel than the lyric one that followed. Filmed on an empty white set, New Zealand-based choreographer Parris Goebel and her all-female ReQuest Dance Crew deliver a twitchy, Caribbean-inflected routine to Justin Bieber's tropical-pop hit. Outfitted in stunna shades and thrifted Nineties gear, the members of ReQuest are both boisterous and sensual, the perfect accompaniment to a song that obviously wants to make you move more than read.
