Page 1 of 9

Welcome to FACT’s weekly video round-up.

As we note at the end of every year, music videos have never been better. But too often, music videos — along with documentaries, live sets and interview clips — get lost in the shuffle of news and new music.

With that in mind, FACT is doing what it does for mixes, mixtapes, vinyl and more: rounding up the internet’s best videos on a weekly basis. And to remove our bias, we won’t be including our own content — you’ll have to stay tuned to FACT TV for all your Against The Clock, FACT Freestyles and Confessions needs.

Dir: Monty Marsh

Dawn Richard is pure sex in this clip, which joins Blackheart cut ‘Billie Jean’ with new single ‘Dance’ into an American Beauty-referencing fantasy that is part S&M club, part dance party.

Nosaj Thing feat. Chance The Rapper & The O’My’s
‘Cold Stares’

A pair of dancers turn the moody, drug-dazed ‘Cold Stares’ into interpretative choreography. Shot (at least in part) by drones, the video exposes the wireframes of a 3D environment, revealing the Matrix.

‘Arnold Palmer’
Dir: Lubansky

Rap iconoclasts open a lemonade stand on the corner. Overhead shots of city streets and skateboarders give it some of that pre-Giuliani New York City flavor.

The Holy KIT

The LA-via-Chicago rapper continues his streak of videos with a low-concept clip that is a tribute to good location scouting: KIT raps in a drained, graffiti-covered pool on the grounds of an abandoned mansion.
