33. D'Angelo "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" (1999)

Director: Paul Hunter
Album
: Voodoo

The concept of this video is as simple as it gets: a naked man singing in front of a black background. But what brings this clip into a higher echelon is how it manages to transcend D'Angelo's abs. "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" isn't as much sensual as it is symbolic, representative of a raw, emotional nakedness that feels humane with the singer's body motions in the video. This sort of honesty is also conveyed at the very end when the track famously cuts out. D'Angelo looks insecure in the close-up shot. Physique is no substitute for longing. -Brian Josephs
