Calvin Harris and Sam Smith Deliver Soulful Track ‘Promises’

Calvin Harris and Sam Smith have created the team of our dreams with artist Jessie Reyez on their new single “Promises.” The Scottish DJ/producer follows the summer success that came from his collaboration with Dua Lipa, “One Kiss,” with an equally powerful voice in the English singer. Sam Smith and Harris are a match made in the stars; both are extremely gifted in their ability to serenade hearts with their music. With “Promises,” the duo take the energy down in a different direction for a low, soul-soothing track.

Calvin Harris, Sam Smith – Promises (Official Video)

Calvin Harris produces a jazzy house vibe that’s perfect for a club setting while Sam Smith’s smooth voice croons, “Magic is in the air / There ain’t no science there / So come get your everything tonight.” The elements of this song are surprising coming from Sam Smith and Calvin Harris, and the accompanying video is an absolute treat celebrating vogue and ball culture featuring flawless dancers and model Winnie Harlow. Smith’s robust voice is controlled and silky compared to the bravado he usually sings with, while Harris’s production is less vibey and more laid back. Still, “Promises” is one that you’ll feel deep within yourself.
