One of the easiest ways to create a lot of buzz for your music video is having a couple of celebrities make a surprise appearance. Many of our favorite artists embraced this strategy in 2020 and gave us amazing cameo-filled videos along the way. Here are some of the best of 2020.

Katy Perry – “Not the End of the World”

Katy Perry is the latest artist to give us a music video starring an A-list star. Her lookalike Zooey Deschanel takes the lead in this hilarious video that shows her being abducted by aliens and saving the Earth from destruction.

Cardi B ft. Megan Thee Stallion – “WAP”

If we had to pick the most talked-about star-studded music video of 2020, it would definitely be “WAP”. It featured appearances from Normani, Rosalía, Mulatto, Sukihana, Rubi Rose, and a short cameo from Kylie Jenner that left people both excited and confused.

Megan Thee Stallion – “Body”

Stallion gave us another star-studded music video with “Body”, with cameo appearances from Taraji P. Henson, Blac Chyna, Jordyn Woods, Maliibu Miitch, and more.

DJ Khaled ft. Drake – “Popstar”

DJ Khaled and Drake gave us one of their biggest hits of 2020 with “Popstar”, but it was Justin Bieber’s surprise appearance that got everyone talking about this music video.

Beyoncé – “Brown Skin Girl”

Beyoncé never had any trouble convincing her A-list friends to appear in her videos, and this one featured appearances from Naomi Campbell, Lupita Nyong’o, Kelly Rowland, and her daughters Blue Ivy and Rumi Carter.
