For this week’s song, I decided to go with Leave Your Lover by Sam Smith. As the title suggests, the song is a passionate plea for Smith’s crush (?) to leave their lover and be with him instead. Sam’s voice is magical and he’s been dubbed the male version of Adele. The video also raises questions about Sam’s sexuality. Most people have been speculating that he is gay for quite some time but he had been mum on the subject of his sexuality. But I think the video handled the question of his sexuality very well.
Regardless of his sexuality, he deserves and mainstream success and he is very talented. His debut album In the Lonely Hour hit the stores yesterday in the UK and 17th June in the U.S. I have already downloaded the album via iTunes as I have a UK iTunes account and I am absolutely in love. So far it is the best album of 2014 on my list. Enjoy!
