When someone is inspired and excited about what they are doing, it comes through in their music. This song by Sam Smith (ft. Mary J. Blige) is everything. It is soulful and heartfelt. You can tell these two have immense respect and admiration for each other.
Sam: “Working with Mary J. Blige is one of the biggest highlights of my career so far. I remember holding her album in my hands in the car when I was a young boy. To meet your idols is a magical thing, but to work with them is truly a dream come true.”
Mary: “I’m so honored to have had the chance to work with Sam Smith. Sam’s true soulful voice… is the first of this kind I have heard since Luther Vandross, Freddie Jackson and all the great soulful male voices from the ‘80s. I’m completely blown away by his talent, soul and the sincerity.”
