Sam Smith’s New Single Is A Remix Of “Pray” Featuring Logic
Sam Smith is releasing a remix of “Pray” as the third single from The Thrill Of It All. The new version, which features a verse from rising rapper Logic, drops Thursday (March 29). “My new single is PRAY feat. Logic,” the Brit tweeted. “I am so excited for you to hear this new version of one of my favourite tracks on the album. It was an absolute pleasure to collaborate with Logic to create this, such an incredible artist.” He also shared the black-and-white cover art (below).
A co-production between Timbaland and Jimmy Napes, “Pray” was released a buzz single way back in October, 2017 — climbing all the way to number 55 on the Billboard Hot 100. Given that success, it was surprising when Sam overlooked it as the album’s second single in favor of “One Last Song.” That track vastly underperformed by his standards (it missed the Billboard Hot 100 altogether), so it’s perhaps wise to retreat to a tried and tested hit. It will be interesting to see how Logic factors into the introspective gospel-pop anthem.
