This summer, Rolling Stone featured South African psych-rockers BLK JKS in our Artists to Watch special, and now we're happy to bring you the premiere of the band's new video for "Molalatladi," the opening track on their excellent debut After Robots.

The clip was filmed in September in New York (the performance shots were taken at downtown club Santos Party House, and the beach images were captured at the city's legendary Coney Island), and bonus footage comes via the directors of the film Sanza Hanza from South Africa.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
