We here at MUCH have been hopelessly obsessed with British singer Sam Smith since last year, but the new artist and recent winner of BBC’s coveted Sound of 2014 poll is going to explode this year. We just know it. Read the following to see — and hear — why we have such a big crush on this up-and-coming artist.
This is Sam Smith.
He’s a 21-year-old singer from England. You may remember him from such spectacular songs as Disclosure’s Latch.
And Naughty Boy’s La La La.
Look at his perfectly coiffed hair. I mean, just look at it.
And it’s not just upbeat dance tracks that he excels in — check out this beautiful acoustic rendition of Lay Me Down. Chills!
He released an incredible four-song EP in October called Nirvana.
According to reports, Smith will have a debut full-length out mid-next year, but while we wait, here’s a new song called Money on My Mind.
Bonus: He just beat out artists such as BANKS, Sampha and Chance the Rapper for the title of BBC’s Sound of 2014. That is a big deal. Previous winners of this popular poll include Haim, Ellie Goulding, Jessie J, Mika and Adele. So, Sam Smith is like the next Adele. Sort of.
