Famous Artists in Music Videos Where They Don’t Sing

Have you ever been watching a music video and noticed a famous face pop up, even though it’s not their song? I remember teenage me being pleasantly surprised to see Justin Timberlake make a cameo at the end of Promiscuous by Nelly Furtdado. When worlds collide!

The more I dug into the topic, the more examples I found of famous popstars making appearances in music videos by other artists, even though they’re not featured on the song itself.
