Out singer/songwriter Sam Smith drops his latest, “Dancing With a Stranger,” an R&B-influenced pop duet with former Fifth Harmony member, Normani.
Speaking to Billboard, Smith shares the new song “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,” said the 4-time Grammy Award winner. “I’m so excited to watch her light shine.”
Normani returned the mutual love telling Billboard, “I never thought in a trillion years that I would be able to state that I have a record with this extremely gifted being.”

You have to imagine there are echoes from his breakup last summer with 13 Reasons Why star Brandon Flynn mixed into the recording as Smith sings: “I don’t want to 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.”
In September, Smith shared with The Times, "I'm still trying to figure out what I took from that relationship and what it meant to me.”
He added, "It's still quite raw."
