We had a run on all the videos that was released in the month of OCTOBER and we would like to share with you, our favourites. Check out our Top 5 Music Videos For October.
1. DJ SNAKE – TAKI TAKI FT. OZUNA, CARDI B & SELENA GOMEZ
French DJ Snake has a knack for assembling star-studded, surefire gems – Cardi B, Ozuna and Selena Gomez for his catchy song, Taki Taki.
The song fuses reggaeton, island beats and hip-hop in a way that is both unexpected and accessible. Puerto Rico’s Ozuna gets the party started with a silky smooth verse that rides the bone-rattling beat and introduces us to the insidious hook. Next up is frequent chart-topper Cardi B, who instantly makes it clear that “Taki Taki” doubles as a floor-filler and a bedroom anthem.
DJ Snake, Cardi B, Ozuna and Selena Gomez visit eerie and vivid realms in this video, Director Colin Tilley follows the artists around a stormy world filled with raging storms, flowing lava and women-filled pits. At various points, DJ Snake hangs out on the hood of a car, and Gomez sings her verse from within a serene forest.
“If the text ain’t freaky, I don’t wanna read it,” Cardi raps with trademark attitude. “And just to let you know, this punani is undefeated.” Ok, then! The rapper then switches to Spanish — a formula that Selena Gomez follows on her contribution.
In many ways, the “Back To You” crooner is the MVP of this collaboration. She brings a playfulness to the banger that strikes the right balance between cheeky and lewd. “Careful when you come through my way, my body already know how to play,” she coos sexily.
With the streaming success so far, “Taki Taki” has sure put a dent on the charts, the song which broke the record for the most pre-saved song in history is at 404 Million YouTube views as at the time of publishing this article.
This is huge!!!, TAKI TAKI sits at the number #1 spot on our Top 5 Music Videos For October. Watch/Download Below.
2. BAD BUNNY – MIA FT. DRAKE
Puerto Rican trap star, BAD BUNNY born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio put Drake on the song MIA. It’s amazing seeing Drake trades in his traditional rapping verse for a singing Spanish verse. LOL!!!
Drake opens the song singing in Spanish, praising his girl’s loyalty before Bad Bunny’s low croon comes in and echoes the same sentiments: “Tell him you’re mine / You know you’re mine / you said it yourself” they sing in Spanish.
The instrumental consists of one airy synth and a squeaky vocal sample; a steady kick-drum ensures that DJs can cue this up in the club.
Bad Bunny alternates between staccato rapping and low-register talk-singing, encouraging a woman to ignore her other admirers.
The video finds Drake and Bunny kicking it at a block party, playing dominoes, dancing, and of course, having a good time. With a sea of bodacious women floating through the party, this kickback is definitely the hot spot for Drake and Bunny to unleash their addicting earworm.
The video sits at Number #2 spot with the whooping 234.2 Million YouTube views as at the time of publishing this article.

3. TRAVIS SCOTT – SICKO MODE FT. DRAKE
Here is another Drake-featured video, Travis Scott And Drake Link Up In “Sicko Mode”. Thanks to Director Dave Meyers; who handle the spacey and stylish visuals for the song.
The 5-minute video introduces fans to a new reality, one where the forces of gravity are always changing and the colors range from fluorescent to black. The video manages to transform Travis Scott from a James Brown-like singer into a professor, while Drake goes back to high school before taking a Xan to another dimension. Between those moments, there is camera altering Jamba Juice sequence, Drake walks a dog during the apocalypse, and a Honey I Shrunk The Kids sized woman twerks in a Canadian rapper’s eyeballs. It’s a lot, but never too much.
BOOM!!! there you have it on the #3 spot of our Top 5 Music Videos For October.
4. LITTLE MIX – WOMAN LIKE ME FT. NICKI MINAJ
Girl group, Little Mix Challenge Stereotypes as they link up with Nicki Minaj on ‘Woman Like Me’ Video. Directed by Marc Klasfeld, the visual finds the quartet attending finishing school where the training reinforces stereotypes of how women should supposedly properly conduct themselves. They’re put through the paces of balancing books on their heads and practice how to eat using utensils in a certain way while minding their posture.
Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall each trade verses on the reggae-pop-tinged track with lyrics that celebrate their individuality and also question of potential paramours, “could you fall for a woman like me.” Later in the clip, Nicki Minaj appears within a vintage painting in different outfits, which highlights the line “I switch it up for every era, I’m really bomb” in her fiery verse.
Watch it below.
5. TYGA – DIP FT. NICKI MINAJ
Tyga and Nicki Minaj unite for a futuristic music video. Nicki Minaj adds her signature swagger to a new remix of Tyga’s single “Dip.” The Queen rapper unfurls a series of career boasts and pop culture-referencing punchlines over the song’s addictive cello hook.
“All these bitches my minis, got him calling me Mickey,” she proclaims. “All that rah-rah never was the icon issue/ Harper’s Bazaar, I’m covering the “Icon” issue/ I got issues; yeah, bitch, I got issues/ W, Vogue, Cosmo – I got issues.” she spits.
The clip, reportedly influenced by Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson’s “Scream” visual, shows the duo hanging out in a series of white rooms, where Tyga levitates near a quartet of sawing cellos and Minaj holds a toy digitally topped with Tyga’s real head.
Peep the clip below.
