A blessing in the form of a tuneful duet came to us early this Friday (1/11). The song “Dancing With a Stranger” is a track by Sam Smith and Normani, and has all the makings of a hit.
“Dancing With a Stranger” has a bouncy pop beat, and is beautifully complemented by the soothing vocals of both Sam and Normani. The two singers’s voices meld together in perfect harmony. Sam and Normani are long time fans of each other’s music, so the collaboration does not come as a surprise.
Prior to the song’s release, Sam Smith announced:
“I’m so excited for everyone to hear ‘Dancing With a Stranger,’ which I wrote on ‘The Thrill Of It All’ tour last year. For me it bottles everything I was feeling whilst juggling my personal life and touring. It is also such a beautiful moment for me as I’m a huge, huge fan of Normani and everything she is. I’m so excited to watch her light shine. I hope everyone enjoys hearing this song as much as I do.”
Normani similarly expressed her excitement over the song:
“I’m truly blessed having the opportunity to create with one of the greatest vocalists of this decade. I think about the artists that I frequently listen to daily and Sam Smith has definitely been one of them for some time now. I never thought in a trillion years that I would be able to state that I have a record with this extremely gifted being.”
