Ready or not, Taylor Swift dropped her “…Ready For It?” music video Thursday night. It’s another ambitious visual following up on “Look What You Made Me Do” and has several stylistic and thematic similarities. But one particularly disturbing theme is emerging in Taylor’s new work: she keeps killing herself.

Demi Lovato took to Instagram to tease a new music video project. The singer was looking ready for “Sexy Dirty Love” in the makeup chair mirror shot as she showed off fishnet stocking and a silk bustier. The pic had fans speculating which song off of her album “Tell Me You Love Me” was next to get a visual treatment.
Little Mix recently released a music video for the remix of its latest single, “Reggaetón Lento” featuring CNCO. The British group seemingly modeled the track off of Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito,” but this one feels a lot less genuine than Justin Bieber flubbing the lyrics of the smash single.
What’s more apparent than the foursome’s desperation to get a hit single by hopping on Luis’ bandwagon is the inspiration taken for the visual.

Zayn seems poised to make a case for why he should be the next James Bond. Just after GQ named him the Most Stylish Man of the Year, Zayn is putting his super spy credentials to the test in his new music video for “Dusk Till Dawn” featuring Sia. The video has Zayn playing the part of a mysterious operative on the run.
Co-starring “Girls” actress Jemima Kirke, the video opens with Zayn creeping on Jemima from above. Zayn leaves his perch in a window to trail Jemima. After a mercifully short scene of Zayn trying to act, he starts laying the groundwork for an elaborate trap.
Using a bathtub full of firecrackers, Zayn traps the villains chasing him in a house under siege by the police who were forced to cut him loose. As the one-sided shootout goes down in an abandoned home, Zayn makes his getaway with Jemima in one of several high-end rides that appears in the video.
Watch Zayn live out his James Bond fantasy below, plus see what he had to say about the new visual on Twitter.

Bella Thorne finally got a chance to watch her pal Zendaya as she starred in the video for “Versace on the Floor” by Bruno Mars. Zendaya’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” co-star Tom Holland already made it clear how he felt about the video, so it was probably only a matter of time before Bella weighed in on the visual.
Bella and Zendaya were in a few music videos together back in the day. As co-stars on Disney’s “Shake It Up,” the duo dueted on a few tracks that got video treatments. Luckily for nosy fans, those vids are still up on YouTube.
Check out Bella’s tweet about Zendaya below, plus relive some of their former music video glory together.

Ed Sheeran has released another video for a song off his “Divide” album. The visuals for “Bibia Be Ye Ye” follows up on the video for “Shape of You,” “Castle on a Hill” and “Galway Girl” with a different concept.
Instead of the carefully crafted storytelling Ed uses to bring a lot of his music to life, he shot a ton of quasi-documentary footage on a trip to Ghana. Ed himself barely appears in the video, and when he does, it’s only the back of his head.
Ed posted on Instagram about the video, explaining how he ended up shooting the visual in the West African nation.
“I visited Ghana last year to make music, and whilst there was exposed to such wonderful culture, food, music and scenery,” Ed wrote in the caption. He loved it so much, he had to capture the vibes for his video and put it out–even though the track isn’t a new single. “This isn’t a single, but it’s the summer, and why not have a summer song come out with a feel good video for people to enjoy.”
See if Ed’s new video for “Bibia Be Ye Ye” is the feel-good summer bop you need below.
