4 Reasons You Love Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’

Sam-Smith-SNL

There’s so much money on your mind that you may have not even noticed the slayage that’s occurring on iTunes.

This past weekend Sam Smith has “his” moment when he performed on SNL.

If you look back through the years countless artists got their big break once they performed on the SNL stage. So being the male answer to Adele like I said back in February, naturally Smith would follow in her footsteps and blow up after his debut appearance.

I don’t know if the release of ‘Stay With Me’ was done because of the appearance, but I’m glad it happened.

‘Stay With Me’ gives us everything we need. I’m talking about some Fighting Temptations realness. Some truth that’s signed sealed and delivered.

Sam Smith Performs ‘Leave Your Lover’; World Stops Moving

Sam Smith

This past Thursday Sam Smith performed at the MtvU Woodie Awards down in Austin.

He decided to bless us with a performance from album track ‘Leave Your Lover’, a song about unrequited love and the levels of emotions that come with it.

How is it humanly possible for his voice to sound exactly the same on stage as it does in the studio? What type of British magic did he and Adele succumb to? How pissed is Rita Ora that she can’t obtain it?

‘Leave Your Lover’ is another brilliant track from Sam. He’s been performing it for a while, but I’m apparently very late to the ‘lover’ party. The song contains the same octave jumping vocals that we’ve come to expect from Sam, but since his voice is flawless each song sounds better than the last.

Drake and Rihanna Perform ‘Take Care’ for the First Time; Love is Real

It only took 2 years for us to finally see a performance of ‘Take Care’ live with both Drake and Rihanna.

Drake brought the Bad Gal out during his tour stop in Paris on Tuesday night. Both decked in all white, the duo serenaded each other with their 2012 hit. He is currently in the European leg of his Would You Like A Tour? world tour.

The two have performed together before when Rihanna’s ‘What’s My Name’ was ruling the world, but we’ve never been blessed with a ‘Take Care’ performance.

This beautiful display of *Future voice* love and affection sent the Parisian crowd into a frenzy. The internet then followed, causing ‘Bad Behavior’ throughout the world.

After the performance, Drake took to instagram to post a picture of the two with the caption “PaRIH”. Naturally France has since notified United Nations of the legal name change.
