Spring has been a rich season for actors to show up in music videos and on stage. In some instances, the appearance has been to advance a summer movie or to support their friends in the music industry. But deep down, they really to be rock stars themselves or have already released an album or two.

Jamie Foxx in “Walk It Talk It” (YouTube).

The season started in mid-March with Atlanta-based hip-hop group Migos releasing a “Soul Train”-influenced visual for “Walk It Talk It” featuring Drake. With Oscar winner and R&B singer Jamie Foxx serving as host Ron Delirious (like Don Cornelius fitted in appropriate ‘70s attire), the trio of Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff sport silk ruffle shirts, tight suits, pastel sunglasses and Afro wigs while performing on “Culture Ride.” Drake, a former teen actor who has had cameos in recent films, steps in with a sparkly black jacket and a Jehri curl wig. Foxx also grooves with some of the dancers and gets a couple to work on the scramble board to find out which way the Culture Ride goes. So far, the video has had t least 111 million views.

A few weeks later, Drake dropped the female star-studded video for his single “Nice For What.” Lensed by actress/director Karena Evans, the video features actresses, models and more in different scenes set to the song that samples actress/singer Lauryn Hill’s soul classic “Ex-Factor.” Olivia Wilde crashes a fancy dinner while wearing a flamboyantly red ballroom skirt, while Letita Wright dusts the dirt off her shoulder while overlooking the skyline. Nothing gets in between Tiffany Haddish and her jewels as she smokes a cigar and lounges in a bathtub. Zoe Saldana is the blissful wife and mother with her husband and three sons, and Emma Roberts is having fun poolside. Also appearing in the video are Michelle Rodriguez, Issa Rae, “The Florida Project” breakout star Bria Vinaite, Rashida Jones, ballerina Misty Copeland and Tracee Ellis Ross. The video is a hit with more than 72 million views.

SZA performs “Drew Barrymore” at Coachella.

With two sets at Coachella in April, R&B songstress SZA had a chance to perform her song “Drew Barrymore.” Released last year, the New Jersey-based singer made a video for the song that featured a cameo by the actress midway through the song. During SZA’s sets, a video compilation of Barrymore’s films, including “Never Been Kissed” and “E.T.,” provided the stage’s backdrop. Also included in SZA’s set was her collaboration with rapper Kendrick Lamar “All the Stars,” which appears on the “Black Panther” soundtrack.

Kevin Hart in “Kevin’s Heart” (YouTube)

While actor/comedian Kevin Hart has been on a wave of successful blockbusters, his personal life has been the subject of tabloids and gossip sites. He takes on his infidelity scandals in a video for rapper J. Cole’s “Kevin’s Hart.” In the song’s second verse, the Fayetteville, North Carolina-native goes on with the following:

“I love her, I don’t want to lose her
I’m selfish, I know that I use her
My ego get stroked and I bruise her
My ego get stroked and I bruise her
My actions I know they confusin’
At home I look happy as usual
On the road I’m a mack, I’m a chooser
I’m a addict, I’m maskin’ that
Kevin’s Heart”

Throughout the video, Heart confronts disapproving stares from everyone he sees while running errands in Los Angeles. Wearing a black leather jacket with multicolored heart patches on the back, Heart can’t escape judgments from others. On the other side, temptation to cheat and flirt with other women is all around him. The video does wrap up with a happy ending and has collected more than 10 million views.

Tessa Thompson and Janelle Monae in “Make Me Feel” from “Dirty Computer.”

Janelle Monae put the perfect end to April with the release of her third full-length album, “Dirty Computer.” The five years between this release and “Electric Lady,” Monae has been busy with movie roles, including award-winning turns in “Moonlight” and “Hidden Figures.” For “Dirty Computer,” Monae created what she termed as an “emotion picture,” a 48-minute movie with videos for each of her album’s tracks. The movie carries Afrocentric and science-fiction themes throughout with messages of black girl magic, free expression and sexuality. Tessa Thompson and Jayson Aaron play Monae’s love interests and fellow rebels in a dystopia where humans are born as “computers” and if they stray from what the government wants them to be, they are referred to as “dirty computers” that require reprogramming, or “cleaning.” As Jane, Monae is one of these “dirty computers” and her memories (in the form of music videos) are being wiped out. On the album, Monae duets with actress/singer Zoë Kravitz on “Screwed.”
