We’ve featured Sam Smith’s angelic falsetto many a time, but his latest single employs it to devilish effect—“I’m Not The Only One” is a smooth, slow-burn revenge ballad, and further proof that the British crooner is primed to make a big splash with his debut album.

The song's video features Glees Dianna Agron as a housewife onto her beau’s adulterous schemes. Her subsequent fit of pique includes burning the transgressor’s clothing, crying in the car as he hooks up in a dimly lit bar, and knocking back a handle in a liquor store. Not the most original imagery, but Smith’s soulful vocal lends it some feel-good power.
