One of my best references to know and be updated about emerging hit songs is my dear nephew Luis. When I wanna be updated, I would simply ask him what’s his latest music downloads. He of course would be all but willing to play these songs in his phone. I then would got to select which ones would I like and ask him to send it to my phone via the ever reliable bluetooth.
Several weeks ago, Luis introduced me to the music of Sam Smith. After that moment, I was totally hooked on the beautiful music of this British singer. When Luis first played Sam Smith’s song on his phone, I asked him if the guy was a black artist. It is because he sounded like a soulful black singer!
When I first saw his video on Youtube, I believed that Sam Smith – with his enormous talent and rising popularity – is an Adele in the body of Boy George. That Sam Smith would most likely be the offspring in case Adele and Boy George would have a baby.
Kidding aside, since then I got so curious with the body of his works. I was so impressed by his unique voice, his exceptional vocal range and the stirring lyrics of his songs. I now got a separate playlist of Sam Smith’s music in my phone. Songs taken from his debut and sophomore albums.
Here is Sam Smith, my favorite male singer this year!
