Today, Sam Smith and Normani released their new collaboration “Dancing with a Stranger.” The song apparently came about by pure chance. Sam Smith was doing some compositional work at a commercial studio when Normani rented a space nearby at the same studio to work on a recording. The two bumped into each other in a hallway at the studio.
In the conversation that followed, the British multi-Grammy winner mentioned he was a big fan of Normani’s work. And that seems to be all that it took for a pop collab to happen …
In terms of its sound, the single gives off classic Nineties-style pop-R&B vibes — which seems to be a vocal sweet-spot for both singers. The track debuted at No.1 on iTunes earlier this morning. So it seems like people are at least initially enjoying those Nineties-style vibes.
You can listen to the new song below.
