Following hot on the heels of the explosive No.1 global smash, Unholy, Sam Smith returns with their new offering Gimme from their much-anticipated new album GLORIA.
For the dancehall infused Gimme, Sam has teamed up with other two female forces in Columbian-Canadian R&B singer songwriter Jessie Reyez and Jamaican reggae star Koffee.
Described by Smith as “filth!”, the track, which got its first play as Radio 1s Hottest Record, is a dubby hypnotic lover’s call. ‘Me and Jessie were basically drunk, drinking whisky in Jamaica, two in the morning, running around, like two girlfriends having a laugh, it’s a very sensual song.’ And Gimme was born.
Gimme comes off the back of the unprecedented success of Unholy, Sam’s eighth #1 hit, garnering over 1 billion streams worldwide, the record was Sam’s first Billboard Hot 100 #1, it has been nominated for a GRAMMY, and remained on top of the Spotify and Apple Music global charts over a month after release. Dominating Tik-Tok trends with the track, Sam is amongst only three other artists who debuted at #1 on the UK Official Charts in 2022; holding 4 weeks at the top.
Multi-Platinum, GRAMMY, BRIT, Golden Globe and Academy Award winning artist/songwriter Sam Smith is one of the most celebrated musical artists to emerge in recent history and holds a collection of remarkable successes. Having amassed 37 million album sales, 276 million single sales and 50 billion career streams. Their multi-platinum debut and sophomore albums, In the Lonely Hour and The Thrill of It All, both debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and UK charts.
Last year, Sam performed two very special shows at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall and has since announced GLORIA UK and EU tour for 2023.
GLORIA, the album will be released on 27th January. Gimme is out on 11th January. GLORIA, The Tour is on sale now.
