KATY-PERRY

Artist Of The Week: Katy Perry

Miss Perry rules the VidZone waves this week with the colorful video for her new single ‘This Is How We Do’. It’s the fifth single from her latest record, Prism and is another welcome and catchy slice of summer from the pop-star. The pop-art styled video was directed by Joel Kefali who is also responsible for Lorde’s ‘Royals’ and ‘Tennis Court’ and features an ice cream twerking…Need we say more!? Check it out now along with all of her previous videos in her Artist Of The Week playlist.

LINKIN-PARK

Rock Zone

They arrived with their debut album, Hybrid Theory FOURTEEN years ago and sold millions which in turn made nu-metal the biggest thing since slice bread. And now Linkin Park is back with The Hunting Party and its brilliant single ‘Until It’s Gone’. The ultra-cool and effect-heavy music video was directed by the band’s DJ, Joe Hahn, and has received a nomination at the MTV Video Music Awards 2014 for ‘Best Rock Video’. Check it out now and others from their catalogue in their Artist Spotlight Playlist now.

Well I like that more content is constantly being added and people complain about the ads but if I’m correct vid zone doesn’t have control over this and the service wouldn’t be free without the ads.

The ads ARE too much. I used vidzone a few times and then stopped because of the ads. I can go on youtube and watch music videos on there with a LOT less ads. Give people a REASON to come to vidzone……… I and I’m sure many others wouldn’t mind paying a small yearly fee to enjoy music videos ad free.
