6. Lana Del Rey, "Ride"
All of the images and iconography that add to the allure and mystique of the always moody Lana Del Rey play into the "Ride" video. By the time the single came out, her debut album Born to Die had solidified her unique place in pop that shifted away from the more R&B and EDM leanings of mainstream music at the moment. For the video, Del Rey is seen surrounded in American flags and on an adventure with a much-older motorcycle gang. The monologue at the beginning of the clip has become influential on many videos in its wake, including Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble."
