So: less words, more to the point - this is the top most popular clips filmed in Kyiv! Let's go!
Miley Cyrus - "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart"
Let's start with the video for the sensational hit Miley Cyrus, which is known as "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" ... By the way: the song became the singer's 46th hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart! It was released as a single in 2018, but the composition has not lost its popularity to this day ...
And yes: no matter how strange it may sound, Miley Cyrus decided to shoot the video for “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart” on the streets of Kyiv, and in particular on the famous Darnitsky bridge, on which a whole chase was played out with the participation of the police ... There is also spicy shots, and lyrics, and tragedy ... In a word - a real short blockbuster!

Charli XCX is a famous British singer-songwriter who debuted in 2013 with her album True Romance, which was a great commercial success ... Over the years, the singer has released many hit tracks, including "White Mercedes": a modern pop ballad tells a difficult love story... Charlie sings:
"Don't say that you love, because I will not answer the same,
Don't apologize, you didn't do anything wrong
I will suppress my feelings, but not pride ... "
The video for the song, filmed in Kiev's Troyeshchyna, turned out to be really spectacular: the burning of a white Mercedes, the charming Charlie in a floating dress, and even a snow-white horse! All this perfectly contrasts with the background in the form of Kiev Khrushchev... Bliss for aesthetes.

The composition "Let It Happen", released in 2015 as a single from the album Currents, received great success among music critics ... Many called it "one of the best songs of 2015". And in many ways, such a resounding success is due to the inspiring music video…
In the clip we can see such places in Kyiv as Boryspil airport, Hilton hotel and others…
Twenty one pilots - "Nico and the Niners"
The composition "Nico and the Niners" by the American duo Twenty one pilots is a dark story about an alternative reality... Hence the plot of the video, in which Tyler Joseph lives in a terrible walled city called "Dema" (this word means depression...)
The music video turned out to be very atmospheric and spectacular ... No wonder it has collected more than 80 million views!

When I lose control and fall head over heels
When I was dropped from the ninth heaven like a cannonball
Promise me that you won't let me fall..."
