    23. SZA - “Babylon”

    Directors: SZA & APLUSFILMZ

    The sound of SZA’s voice tends to give all of her songs a dream like quality that is almost hypnotizing. In the video for “Babylon”, SZA can be seen undressing but in a way that makes it seem like more of a freeing experience than a sexual one. The slow motion visuals add to her transfixing voice and leave you mesmerized throughout the entire video, waiting to see what will happen next. With just dirty socks and an oversized white tee, SZA emerges into a lonely lake as if to purify herself but things take a drastic turn by the end of the video.—Adrienne Black
