The Video for Good category was created in 2011 and was initially called video with a message. It became video with a ‘social’ message in 2013 before being renamed to Video for Good. It is a category created to celebrate music videos that carry a social message.
This year, in light of conversations surrounding racial injustice, these videos have been nominated for the category: Anderson Paak’s ‘Lockdown’, H.E.R’s ‘I can’t breathe’, Lil Baby’s ‘The Bigger Picture’ and Demi Lovato’s ‘I love me’ are some of the music videos nominated in the category.
