10. Stromae, "Quand C'est?"

Director: Xavier Reyé
Stromae's album Racine Carrée was released back in the summer of 2013, but 2015 saw the push to finally break the Belgian star in the United States. Over the past two years there have been seven videos for songs off the album, more than half of the tracklist. "Quand C'est?" was not only the final clip, but the best at showcasing Stromae's talent for communicating emotional drama. Set in a decaying theater with him alone onstage, the performance feels more like a modern dance piece, albeit one aided by the CGI effects of a mid-budget science fiction film. While "Tous Les Mêmes," Stromae's previous standout, played to his androgynous looks, "Quand C'est?" takes advantage of his slight, skinny frame — a brave move in the narcissistic world of pop.
