There’s nothing quite like watching a music video of your favorite artist and seeing a bunch of Hollywood A-listers suddenly pop up on the screen. Star-studded music videos have been around for a while, but they are going stronger than ever this spring, and here are a few that got everyone talking.

Sabrina Carpenter – “Please Please Please”

This past week has given us several amazing music videos, starting with Sabrina Carpenter’s “Please Please Please”. She served major Bonnie and Clyde vibes in this epic visual alongside her boyfriend Barry Keoghan, the star of Saltburn and The Banshees of Inisherin.

Ariana Grande – “The Boy Is Mine”

Ariana Grande’s latest music video sees her transforming into Catwoman and stalking Penn Badgley. It also features a cameo from Brandy and Monica, whose hit song “The Boy is Mine” inspired her own.

Billie Eilish – “Chihiro”

Billie Eilish’s self-directed video for “Chihiro” is less elaborate than the previous two, but that didn’t stop Paper Towns star Nat Wolff from signing up to play her love interest.

Charli XCX – “360”

Charli XCX made quite a splash with her new album Brat and created a lot of hype for this record with the “360” video starring some of the internet’s biggest “it girls”, including Chloë Sevigny, Julia Fox, Rachel Sennott, and Emma Chamberlain.
