Notarized Flipbook 2013

The 100 hottest videos from 2013.

2. Robin Thicke feat. Pharrell and T.I., "Blurred Lines" - Despite ugly lawsuits and being accused of promoting date rape in his lyrics, Robin Thicke put the sexy back into '70s dance music with this monster jam about a girl getting seduced. The cut's rhythm is eerily reminiscent of Marvin Gaye's 1977 "Got to Give It Up," but nonetheless, established Mr. Thicke as an R&B power broker in 2013.     (Photo: Star Trak)

Chris Brown Brings Peace to the Streets - Breezy, a Virginia native, has made L.A. his second home. Concerned about the children growing up in gang-ridden culture and wanting to promote peace, he donated over 1,000 Reebok sneakers last July 4 to kids in the City of Angels for his Walk Everywhere in Unity event and campaign to help end violence. Brown has also partnered with the L.A. mayor’s office to help bring about activities for the youth to get involved in and remain off the streets. His video "Don’t Think They Know," featuring Aaliyah vocals, also tackled bringing a stop to gang violence and Black-on-Black crime. (Photo: RCA)
