Girlfriends of Music Videos Past: The Ladies Who've Played Muse for Their Singer Beaus

Find out what couples appeared in music videos together before Kanye's "Bound 2"
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian in West's New Music Video "Bound 2"
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, also known as the unstoppable publicity machine called Kimye, released their newest creation to the masses Tuesday on Ellen. West swaggered onto the daytime talk show to premiere his new music video for "Bound 2," which also serves as an instructional clip on how not to ride a motorcycle. While the sunsets and horses are nice, the video's standout feature is Kardashian. The bare, blond and buxom reality star is shown body-rolling her way across West's chopper, and in turn, onto everyone's social feeds.

This may be the first music star girlfriend we have seen between a set of handlebars, but Kardashian is hardly the first significant other to sashay her way through the music video of her main squeeze. Check out singer flings who stuck around long enough to be gifted with a music video appearance.

Adam Levine and Anne Vyalitsyna

Before becoming engaged to Behati Prinsloo, Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice judge Levine was connected to a bevy of beautiful woman. One of those ladies was model Anne Vyalitsyna. The then-couple showed off just how hot and heavy they were in Maroon 5's video for "Misery."

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton

Thanks to a gabby Thicke, we already know what music he and wife Paula Patton play when they're in the mood. Even without this over-share, we knew things were steamy between the sheets. Need proof? A quick view of Thicke's "Love After War" will show there are no "blurred lines" for this pair when it comes to love.

Michael Bublé and Luisana Lopilato

The song may be called "Haven't Met You Yet" but Bublé was already smitten with the sweetheart in his music video. The blonde who keeps catching the crooner's eye in this sweet song is his wife, then-girlfriend, model Luisana Lopilato.

Jay Z and Beyoncé

The exact moment these two music moguls decided to transform the entertainment world by becoming each other's boo-thangs is under speculation, but many believe it all started with "Bonnie and Clyde." Posing as an updated version of history's infamous bank-robbing lovebirds was enough to get fans freaking out about this couple's future. This was just the beginning for Bey and Jay, who have gone on to make plenty more music ... and the adorable Blue Ivy.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen

Legend provided viewers with a rather intimate view of what it's like to be in a relationship with model Teigen in his music video for "All Of Me." After seeing almost all of Teigen and the couple's chemistry in this clip, we're not surprised the duo tied the knot a month before the video premiered.

Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks

Derulo doesn't seem to have cold feet about the future of his relationship with American Idol alum Sparks. The singer's music video for his new single "Marry Me" shows Derulo going through all the romantic motions to woo his real-life girlfriend. The video hints at a proposal and long life together. Could this mean real wedding bells in the couple's future?

Axl Rose and Stephanie Seymour

With his bandana-chic look, it's safe to call Guns N' Roses lead singer a trendsetter. The occasionally corn-rowed Rose was also one of the first rock stars to feature his lady in a music video. Rose's girlfriend Seymour appeared as the bride in the band's "November Rain" video and also made an appearance in the video for "Don't Cry."
