Sam Smith & Normani’s ‘Dancing With a Stranger’ Hits No. 1

“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.”

The collaboration between the two came about through a chance encounter at the studio in LA as Smith was writing with pop legends Stargate and Jimmy Napes, Normani was in the studio next door and with both artists being long-term fans of each other it was a no-brainer for her to team up with Smith to create the new track.

Sam Smith has spent the past year travelling around the world on his tour following the release of his sophomore album The Thrill of it All, seeing him sell over 1 million tickets across 100 shows in 2018. Dancing With A Stranger is his first new music in 2019 and follows on from his global hit with Calvin Harris ‘Promises’ which stormed the charts last summer. Smith will be flying out to South America this spring for Lollapalooza before heading over to South Africa for a string of five shows in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

On the new single Sam Smith says, “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.”

Smith is no stranger to writing love songs. The established singer, who has four Grammy awards under his belt, spent a majority of 2018 touring for his critically acclaimed 2017 sophomore album, The Thrill of It All. Smith started a new chapter with his second album, but still maintained what worked from his first — sincere songs that hone into emotions of love, regret and heartbreak. While on the Thrill of It All Tour, Smith penned “Dancing With a Stranger,” another sentimental hit that reminds us of why his music is so resonating.

“Dancing” is just the fifth co-billed No. 1 between a male and female soloist since Radio Songs began in December 1990. It follows Bruno Mars and Cardi B’s “Finesse” (four weeks, 2018); JAY-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind” (nine, 2009-10); Usher and Keys’ “My Boo” (six, 2004); and Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle’s “A Whole New World (Aladdin’s Theme)” (four, 1993).

Here Are the Lyrics to Sam Smith & Normani’s ‘Dancing With a Stranger’

Additionally, Smith and Normani wrote “Dancing” with StarGate, the duo of Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen, and James “Jimmy Napes” Napier, with StarGate and Napier producing the song. StarGate earns its 11th Radio Songs No. 1 (having written and produced each leader) and first since Rihanna’s “Diamonds” in December 2012. The pair first reigned via Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable” in 2006-07.

The R&B-influenced track shows off the powerful vocals of the singers, especially of 22-year-old Normani, the former Fifth Harmony songstress who is successfully making a name of her own. Her debut single released last year, “Love Lies” with Khalid, propelled Normani into the limelight as a new solo artist. Her recent Billboard cover story dives deeper into the young singer’s quest to move on from her past girl group and find her own unique voice.

As for the lyrics in “Dancing With A Stranger,” Smith said in a Capitol Records press release that the song “bottles everything I was feeling whilst juggling my personal life and touring.”

Smith opens the song with: “I don’t wanna be alone tonight/It’s pretty clear that I’m not over you/I’m still thinking ’bout the things you do/So I don’t want to be alone tonight, alone tonight, alone tonight.”

Hozier talks about new album ‘Wasteland, Baby!’

“It’s trying to look at the warm centre of human kindness”

“I came off the road in 2016 and I was just trying to reconnect after living on a bus. You’re in a bit of a bubble, so it was just nice for me to see what was going on,” he told NME.

“Although I might have been better finding a hobby, I became a bit of a news junkie and the album was written when the Doomsday Clock moved two minutes to midnight. It’s a general consensus of how much civilisation is at danger. The threat of nuclear war was being bandied about and escalated, so it was a real threat at the time. This album carries a lot of those worries.”

While the album might sound overly gloomy, the title track sees Hozier tackling how love can be found in the darkest of circumstances.

“It’s trying to look at the warm centre of human kindness and you find that in ‘Wasteland, Baby!’,” he explained. “While there’s other songs on there that have doom and gloom and might touch upon it, Wasteland Baby goes straight for it. It lets us imagine how the worlds might end in a very real sense. But as long as there’s people, that ‘You and I’, there’s always potential for kindness and that is something to be hopeful about.”

Were those genres popular where you grew up, or were you doing your own thing?

I wasn’t exactly popular at the time. In the 90s, the cool kids were listening to Nirvana, because it’s not what your parents are comfortable with you listening to. As a teenager, everyone was into pop. [But] I was hooked on blues music and jazz. I thought it was music for grownups. It was quite immediate and visceral, and it was either lusting or raw in some way. Pop music, I just didn’t vibe with.

What was it about jazz and blues that you connected with?

It excited me more than anything else. There was something quite mystifying about this stuff, because it was hard to get my hands on the records, especially when I was a younger kid with a really poor internet connection. I couldn’t get a train into the city and go to a record store. There was a real sense of distance with this music, which only fed into my craving for it.

So fast forward to your first album, which was a whirlwind experience helped along by virality, and now this one. What’s changed?

There was a huge success with [“Take Me to Church”]. That was so unlikely. Things happened in a way that couldn’t be planned for. I was conscious not to veer off track from what my original ethos was when I wrote that song. I found it very helpful to move back to Ireland, spend a bit of quiet time and approach songwriting in a similar way.

“A lot of Irish musicians have always had a fascination and a deep love for the tradition of rock and roll, the tradition of blues music in particular,” says Hozier. “My dad was a musician who played blues near-exclusively, and my first education in music was through his record collection.”

This Sunday in upstate New York, Hozier’s launching a U.S. tour. He’s excited about taking these songs on the road.

“A lot of these songs on Wasteland, Baby! were written with the intention, these are going to be really fun live,” he says. “I’m touring with an eight-piece band. Everyone on stage is a singer, everyone can play an instrument. There’s a little mini-choir up there.”
