LISA “LEFT EYE” LOPES, 30:  As one-third of the platinum-selling girl group TLC, Lopes made a name for herself as the trio’s outspoken member. As one of the most successful girl groups of all time, TLC amassed a catalog of hits that spoke to millions of fans worldwide. Eventually splitting from the group to be a soloist, Lopes continued to make strides in her career; but her life was cut short at the age of 30 when she was involved in a fatal car accident on April 25, 2002 while in Honduras.

MARVIN GAYE, 44:  A Motown legend and gifted songwriter, Gaye racked up an impressive musical catalogue of timeless hits records that ranged from political commentary to love ballads to poetic soul that touched millions of fans.

Before reality TV took over, cable networks like BET, MTV and VH1 (along with an assortment of broadcast programs) used to dedicate hours to airing music videos. Now, there are only a handful of such shows around and fans are more likely to watch their favorite artist’s latest clip online than on TV. With that said, the quality and concepts for most musicians have gone down. Gone are the days of the multi-million dollar video shoot that was more than a lip-syncing affair and produced mini movies. Still in the midst of Black Music Month, BlackEnterprise.com takes a trip down memory lane with some of the most expensive music videos made by African American artists. You’ll also discover which famous family has a penchant for not only making records but breaking them (and budgets) as well. —Anslem Samuel
