Next…What do you think is this week’s top music video?
The music video of the week goes to EXO‘s “Growl.” I’m not one to jump on fandom band wagons but the music video was shot in one take! The outfits are classy and flattering! The song wasn’t weird and needed some getting used to like their previous promotional songs! No fancy box! They have different singing and choreography parts for two versions of the song in different languages! This is getting really long!
