There is no way you’ve been on TikTok lately without hearing a clip of Sam Smith‘s new song “Unholy.” Well, I guess that depends on your feed, you may just be stuck in the rabbithole of #CleanTok. But I digress…it’s here.
The collaboration between Smith and Petras is an immense departure from Smith’s past projects. The “Stay With Me” singer brings all the grit and soul to this moody, club beat-driven track. “‘Unholy’ was made in Jamaica and was one of the most glorious creative moments I’ve ever had as an artist,” Smith explained of the song. “I’ve never had so much fun making a record.”
To date, the song has been used in over 300,000 videos on TikTok and is the latest single off of Smith’s upcoming fourth studio album. “This song is about liberating oneself from the clutches of others’ secrets” said Smith.
Petras was more than vocal about her respect and admiration for Smith, saying “It is cool to meet another artist who is a really good writer and has a vision that’s their own. I had the best time in the studio with them.”
Without further ado, stream “Unholy” available everywhere now.
