After being last week’s #27* Hot Shot Debut, the joint effort between Calvin Harris and Sam Smith, “Promises,” is now #19* on the Billboard Dance Club Singles Top 50 chart. The Columbia Records-released single has already amassed over 31,000,000 views on the official video as well as almost 79,000,000 plays on Spotify alone.
The “Pray” singer asks, “Are you drunk enough not to judge what I’m doing?/Are you high enough to excuse that I’m ruined?” He sings alongside emerging artist Jessie Reyez who interjects throughout the song, almost answering Smith’s questions.
Harris and Smith appear in the track’s lyric video, striking poses and dancing against grainy backdrops and disco balls. Watch the colorful clip for “Promises” here.
