The 00s were a big mix-mash of everything. There was a moment where having an 'asian' aesthethic was a thing
Mariah Carey - Boy (I Need You)Stars Korean-American actor Will Yun Lee as the love interest? IDK he is just there looking all hot and shit. Mariah also murders her alter-ego Bianca in this music video.
AestheticRetro-Futuristic 'Speed racer' Japan, Godzilla, Japanese Swords, Japanese 'Gangsters', Robots
Fun Fact: Mariah did not have permission to film at the famous Shibuya crossing as it would've caused a lot of traffic chaos but they ended up doing it and got away with it. Watch the vid here
Nelly Furtado - Turn Off The LightThere are 2 versions of the music video, the 'underground' is Nelly playing the guitar while the 'normal' version is the one that was more wide spread.
AestheticTemple, street noodles. Honestly I am confused about this MV it was confusing for me.
AR Rahman & PCD - Jai HoThe movie 'Slumdog Millionaire' spawned the super hit 'Jai Ho'
AestheticI mean...do i have to list this one?
Fun Fact: Nicole is the lead songwriter for this version of the song
Aaliyah - Try AgainA BOP!!! Lead single for the soundtrack for 'Romeo Must Die' starring Jet Li (spoilers: THEY SHOULDVE ENDED UP TOGETHER!!!), it was later put onto the international versions of her self-titled album.
AestheticJet Li, wire work, Jet Li doing martiah arts in front of a mirror, Jet Li running up a wall, Aaliyah learning how to run along a wall with Jet Li (that was a cute moment, you guys dont know how hard I shipped Aaliyah/Jet Li when their movie came out)
Christina Milian - Dip It LowFull time singer and part time voice actress (for JLo) One of my all time fav 'Ho' Jams, honestly have no idea how to feel about the MV though. The amount of times I smacked my head on the floor trying to 'dip it low'
Aestheticthe backing track , Christina dipping it low in a ink slab, theres also a gong in the background and sexualised versions of traditional clothing.
Gwen Stefani & Eve - Rich Girl
Gwen and Eve dresses pirates
Aesthetic4 Japanese women who weren't allowed to speak/sing called the "Harajuku Girls"

Love, angel, music, baby
Hurry up and come and save me
