Pusha T and Rick Ross turn "Millions" into a mini-movie/crime drama.
Pusha T (aka one half of Clipse) has spent more than a couple years away from his twin brother No Malice (even though he's always teasing possible reunions). But we understand it must be tough for Pusha to return to the fold with the success of his solo singles "Mercy" (the lead track on G.O.O.D. Music's Cruel Summer comp) and "Runaway." In his latest "Millions" video (from mixtape Wrath of Caine), Pusha not only recruits Maybach Music BAWSE Rick Ross, but the duo turn the track into an all out Hollywood crime drama.

Austin Mahone has some SLICK moves in his "Say You're Just A Friend" video featuring Flo Rida.
In case you missed the memo, Austin Mahone is a bona fide pop star now. You know, the kind that nails his professionally choreographed dance moves, wears slick leather jackets, and goes on tour with Taylor Swift. Because FYI, "Austin Mahone going on tour with Taylor Swift" is an actual thing and not some weird pop star fantasy you dreamed up after one too many fish tacos. (Oooops, projecting after last night's 10 p.m. taco blackout.) And when he's not rehearsing for his Taylor tour (and taking over the MTV Twitter account!), Austin's busy having Flo Rida guest star on HIS record -- a reinterpretation of Biz Markie's famed "Just A Friend" -- aptly titled, "Say You're Just A Friend." And nope, that wasn't "Flo Rida featuring Austin Mahone." It's Austin featuring Flo.

The Lumineers leave their "Stubborn Love" video in the hands of an emotive little girl.
We first met Denver's foot-stomping folk-rock outfit The Lumineers face-to-face in their taupe-colored "Ho Hey" video. Now, in the Grammy-nominated trio's latest clip, for "Stubborn Love" (a slow-building track from their 2012 self-titled album), Wesley Schultz, Jeremiah Fraites, and Neyla Pekarek are barely visible, choosing instead to feature an expressive little girl.

Benny Benassi is back with his strobe light-ready "Cinema (Skrillex Remix) Dance Video."
Remember Italian DJ Benny Benassi's Gary Go-assisted "Cinema (Skrillex Remix)" video? You probably do, since Skrillex's remix blew up into such a giant hit that it stayed in the iTunes US Dance Top 10 for over six months AND nabbed over thirty-million plays on YouTube and won the 2012 Grammy for Best Remixed Recording. Clearly the track's still got legs, which is why "Cinema"'s been reincarnated again, this time as "Cinema (Skrillex Remix) Dance Video."

Future pays homage to the late Pimp C in "Long Live The..."
We know musicians have (and love) their influences, but we're betting very few will actually take the time to honor them at length the way Atlanta's Future does in his latest "Long Live The..." clip. With some help from Houston rhymer Trae The Truth, Future pays homage to the late, great Southern rapper Pimp C, formerly of UGK (Underground Kingz), in a song on Future's debut, Pluto.

Diamond Youth can only see the color "Orange" in their latest video.
Remember how we buzzed about Baltimore/Chicago's alt-rock quartet Diamond Youth last week? Well, now the boys are gearing up to release their upcoming Orange EP, which showcases an impressive set of Muse-meets-Foo Fighters-meets-Queens Of The Stone Age guitar-heavy rock cuts (see: "Cannonball" and "Separator"). And just a few days before releasing their identically named EP, Diamond Youth have unveiled a brand-new (and perfectly bizarre) video for their song "Orange."

Ca$h Out and B.o.B demonstrate the best way to spend frequent-flyer miles in their "Exclusive" video.
Some people don't get off on material things, and then there's Ca$h Out, who... well, is pretty much called "Ca$h Out" for a reason. (Dude's got a dollar sign in his name, so he's REQUIRED by law to ball.) And whenever we catch a glimpse of Ca$h Out, he's usually riding around with a girl named "Keisha," or literally "Cashin' Out" (also with Keisha -- are you detecting a theme here?). Nowadays, the Atlanta rapper (with B.o.B this time... sorry Keisha!) is taking his balling to the skies on a private jet in his latest video for "Exclusive."

Talib Kweli wants you to know where he stands. Hint: look up.
There's no doubting Talib Kweli's lyrical style makes him one of the greats. But just in case you need a visual reminder, the man's bringing it with his video for "Upper Echelon." The mind-melting video's puzzle-piece edits bring together live footage and shots of the MC spitting to the cameras, with Kweli even dropping some 3-D footage as he swags out in movie-theater glasses. (Shout out to "The Hobbit"!)

Midwest trio ON AN ON (Nate Eiesland, Alissa Ricci, and Ryne Estwing) get all arsony with their fiery video for "The Hunter."
ON AN ON's "The Hunter" video just dropped, and the Isaac Gale/Dan Huiting-directed clip (Huiting's behind Bon Iver's "Beth/Rest" and "Calgary" videos) is either a mesmerizing sepia-toned look at a gutter-punk party (complete with metal-dude hair-whipping and not giving a single, solitary f***), found footage of the mid-'80s U.K. miners' strike, or an inside look at a skateboarding-head-banger Burning Man subculture I was totally unaware of. You decide.
Pick up ON AN ON's haltingly unaffected, washed-out debut album Give In (think Sleigh Bells meets The Beta Band) when it drops next week, and see why the Buzzworthy favorite (we premiered "The Hunter" back in November 2012) just nabbed a highly justified spot on this year's Governor's Ball lineup.

Justin Timberlake shows off his beauty routine in the full-length "Suit & Tie" lyric video.
Remember how excited you got yesterday after watching a preview for Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie Featuring Jay-Z" lyric video? You know, the one that let you (legally and without judgment, we might add!) watch Justin Timberlake getting dressed? (Oh, you're still watching? No worries -- we'll wait.) But you might want to switch gears to the full-length "Suit & Tie" lyric video, which as promised, has officially dropped today! And guess what? You can continue to watch JT get dressed (#NotComplaining), only this time, Justin walks us through even more crucial elements to his beauty routine, like getting a close shave and having his hair did, for example. We also get a good look at JT's decision-making process for picking out JUST the right tie to go with his matching cuff links. And yes, we know -- we're we're basically living vicariously through Jessica Biel's actual life (we imagine she's his IRL go-to "tie picker"), but it's OK -- we're working through our jealousy as we speak.
