Past Loves Featured in Music Videos Serve as Reminder of Failed Relationships

We all have had a relationship or 2 that just didn't work out.  And unless a kid resulted in this union, you pretty much can throw away the love letters, delete the pictures off FB, and get rid of any other signs that the relationship even existed in hopes of healing and moving on.

Not so easy for artists who have featured past significant others in their music videos.  At the time, they probably did it as a public, visual display of their love and relationship.  But what happens when that relationship doesn't last the test of time?  Unfortunately, you can't just press delete to make the video disappear.  Instead, it sits permanently on the internet and could pop up at any time on TV, reminding them of a time in their life that is no longer.  Who wants that kind of reminder?  Let's take a look at some artists who featured their then significant other in a music video. . .

Janet Jackson - Featured then boyfriend Jermaine Dupri in I Want You (2004).

Mariah Carey - Featured then husband Nick Cannon in Bye Bye (2008)

Usher - Featured then girlfriend Chilli in U Got it Bad (2001)

Erykah Badu - Featured then boyfriend Andre 3000 in Other Side of the Game (1997)

Keyshia Cole - featured then husband Daniel Gibson in Long Way Down (2010)

And the artist who probably wins the award for featuring the most significant others in videos is Jennifer Lopez.  Even though she's appeared in videos with past loves like Puffy, Marc Anthony, and Cris Judd, they weren't in confirmed relationships at the time.  However, JLo featured then boyfriend Casper Smart in Dance Again (2012) and who can forget her then fiance Ben Affleck who appeared in Jenny From the Block (2002).
