The MTV Video Music Award for Best Pop Video was first given out in 1999, as MTV began to put several teen pop acts in heavy rotation. Nominations, however, were not just limited to pop acts, as dance, R&B, pop/rock, and, most recently, reggaeton artists have also received Best Pop Video nominations throughout the award's history. In 2007, MTV eliminated this award along with all of the genre categories, but it returned in 2008.

Britney Spears has received the most wins and nominations in this category, winning three awards out of seven nominations. She is also the only solo artist to win the award for two consecutive years.
