Sam Smith Drops Latest Single Off Forthcoming Album

HOLLYWOOD—Multi-Platinum, GRAMMY®, BRIT, Golden Globe and Oscar winning artist/songwriter Sam Smith has unveiled “Gimme, a clubby, dancehall-infused lover’s call featuring breakout Jamaican reggae/rap star Koffee and Colombian/Canadian R&B-pop maverick Jessie Reyez.

The song, which received its first UK play on BBC Radio 1 as the Hottest Record In The World earlier today, comes on the heels of Smith’s chart-topping global smash “Unholy.” Recorded in Jamaica, “Gimme ” is from Gloria, Sam’s fourth studio album, which will be released on January 27 via Capitol Records.

Describing the track as “filth!,” Smith says, “I’m a sexual person, I like sex. It’s something I’m teaching myself to not be ashamed of. Me and Jessie were basically drunk, drinking whisky in Jamaica, two in the morning, running around absolutely wasted, like two girlfriends having a laugh.”

The official video for “Gimme” will premiere soon. Smith teased the “Gimme” original sound on TikTok and IG Reels, racking up millions of views and posts from fans using the sound.

Fans who pre-order the digital edition of Gloria will instantly receive “Gimme” plus the GRAMMY®-nominated, RIAA-certified Platinum single “Unholy” ft. Kim Petras, which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and four weeks atop the UK Official Singles Chart. 

Amassing over one billion combined global streams to date, “Unholy” also took the #1 position on the Mediabase Top 40 Airplay chart, spent 50 days at #1 on the Global Spotify chart and topped the Apple and Shazam worldwide tallies. Unholy was hailed as one of the best songs of 2022 by critics at Rolling Stone, Associated Press, Billboard, Esquire and numerous other outlets. The official video, which won the MTV EMA in the “Video For Good” category, can be seen HERE.
