Sam Smith & Calvin Harris Celebrate The Art Of Vogue In Their “Promises” Video
Sam Smith and Calvin Harris teaming up for a buoyant, disco-tastic floorfiller called “Promises” is one of 2018’s happiest surprises. The flirty banger, which is quickly gaining momentum on the charts, gets a video today (September 4) and it’s a gloriously queer extravaganza that celebrates the art of vogue. Directed by Emil Nava, the clip showcases the talent of New York City’s best Voguers — poses were struck! — and allows supermodel Winnie Harlow to shine in a glamorous cameo appearance.
Best of all, we get to see Sam having the time of his life in a dingy NYC warehouse. After the generally somber tone of The Thrill Of It All, it’s nice to see the Brit twirling under a disco ball. As for Calvin, well he just kind of hangs out and soaks it all in. “Promises” is expected to feature on the producer’s upcoming 6th LP along with the Dua Lipa-assisted “One Kiss” and dancehall-tinged “Nuh Ready Nuh Ready.” Watch the video up top.
