Creative Music Videos Filmed During the COVID-19 Pandemic

We all had to be creative during COVID-19, making cocktails and entertaining our kids with time-wasting projects. Some musicians have made it their own way by performing in their own bedrooms and hosting online battles. They also learned how to set up film studios in their rooms while they waited to leave the house.

Because nature is a creative force, they have also figured out how to record music videos in quarantine, while they don’t  have access yet to a professional music production studio. Artists such as Twenty One Pilots, Drake, Yungblud, and John Legend are just a few of the many people who recorded these video clips.

The following are just a few of the amazing music videos filmed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • “All Together Now” by OK Go

The band, known for creating creative videos, created a shelter at-home sliding-tile video for the song. It was recorded after Damian Kulash and his wife recovered from the coronavirus. The song ends with a tribute for the nightly celebrations of frontline workers.

  • “Bigger Love” by John Legend

Legend’s tropical title track features fans from all over, including Chrissy Teigen, his model-wife, and their children, Luna and Miles. In the short music video, they show their love, connection, and dance moves across the physical divide and make anyone who’s watching feel the same level of love and connection.

  • “Don’t Let Me Disappear” by Ben Harper

The artist Ben Harper describes his new album as one that is essaying that thin line between loneliness, invisibility, and isolation. The black and white images are a moody mix of footage of Harper performing the song alone and footage of two contemporary dancers filling in the empty spaces with their movement.

  • “Midnight” by Alesso & Liam Payne

The video for their latest single was shot by the pop singer and EDM producer from their respective Los Angeles and London homes. Payne can be seen singing on rooftops, while Alesso creates a mood in his home studio with moody lighting. They’ve shown that being far apart from each other is not a reason for them not to make good music together.

  • “Hero” by Weezer

Weezer’s latest song features them asking fans to help pass on a message about front line personnel and first responders (virtually) as the members of the band rock out from a safe distance. Talk about being socially responsible rock artists!

  • “Weird” by Yungblud

The energetic and fun-loving British singer has been making the most out of quarantine through his funny talk show performances. In the video for his new single, he hits the roof as well as the bedroom in a frenetic video about this “weird” time of his life.

  • “Toosie Slide” by Drake

Although he may seem alone in his enormous Toronto home, Drizzy makes self isolation amidst the COVID-19 lockdows look easy as he glides through his eye-popping property, which ends with his own fireworks display.

  • “Daisies” by Katy Perry

Perry, who is obviously pregnant in the video, performs her song in the beautiful environment of nature. This soothing and calming music video is quite a departure from Perry’s usual over-the-top visuals and makes it all the more refreshing.
