Dreams – Fleetwood Mac (cover) by Dana Williams and Leighton Meester

Rising Star’s Dana Williams and Singer and Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester sat down and preformed a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams and it is really good.

If you know me then you know my hatred for anything Stevie Nicks, but this I can handle.  Williams’ EP, The Lonely One, is out now.

Iggy Azalea – Black Widow ft. Rita Ora

In the Director X-directed video, Iggy and Rita seek revenge on an ex-boyfriend. Iggy is a diner girl serving Rita  and her rude date (played by Reservoir Dogs‘ Michael Madsen). His BLT didn’t live up to his very high BLT standards, so he explodes.  This leaves Iggy to day-dream about an alternate life of kicking major ass. Watch the mini-movie below.

Sam Smith ‘I’m Not the Only One’ Video

What a sad yet soulful video. The song tells the tale of a couple dealing with infidelity, and the vid enlists The Mindy Project’s Chris Messina and Glee’s Dianna Agron.

“I’ve never been in a relationship before and I really wanted to make an album that was about love,” Smith previously told Billboard about his work. “But in different forms of love — so unrequited love and loneliness. I’ve been brutally honest in the album.”
