    The artist was the driving force behind the music video; instead of the producer, director, music label or other entity making decisions on how the video is supposed to end up, it was the artist who made the final creative decisions.

    People interpret art differently; saying that the music video was artist-driven implies that the video is exactly what the artist wanted the music to represent.
