Sam Smith & Normani Team Up For “Dancing With A Stranger”
UPDATE: Sam Smith uploaded a teaser of “Dancing With A Stranger” to Instagram. Check it out below!
Finally! After weeks of whispers and cryptic social media clues, Sam Smith and Normani have confirmed their upcoming duet. “Dancing With A Stranger” arrives on January 11 (the same day that fellow Fifth Harmony alum Lauren Jauregui is rumored to be releasing a single) and already has a stylish promo pic. It finds the genetically-blessed collaborators rocking matching black sweaters and sultry pouts. Time will tell if this is a ballad or a slinky bop, but one thing is for certain, there will be vocals.
“I’m so excited for everyone to hear ‘Dancing With a Stranger,'” Sam says of the collaboration. “For me it bottles everything I was feeling whilst juggling my personal life and touring. It is also such a beautiful moment for me as I’m a huge, huge fan of Normani and everything she is. I’m so excited to watch her light shine.” That enthusiasm as shared by the 5H vocalist. “I’m truly blessed having the opportunity to create with one of the greatest vocalists of this decade,” she raves. “I never thought in a trillion years that I would be able to state that I have a record with this extremely gifted being.”
“Dancing With A Stranger” is yet another project for the prolific Brit, who is keeping a high profile between albums with soundtrack contributions and collaborations. As for his duet partner, Normani is on something of a roll. After cracking the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 with the Khalid-assisted “Love Lies,” she dropped a couple of bangers produced by Calvin Harris. At this rate, the 22-year-old is shaping up to have a blockbuster 2019. See their announcement below.
