Sam Smith Covers Aguilera’s ‘Beautiful’ For Pride Month: Look + Listen

In honor of Pride Month for Amazon Originals, Sam Smith has released a cover of Christina Aguilera‘s ‘Beautiful’.

Addressing how the anthem of “true acceptance” inspired the UK singer, the now 31-year-old pop star has put their spin on Xtina’s 2002 power ballad, stating:

“I’ve been such a massive fan of Christina’s for as long as I can remember and will never forget the first time I heard ‘Beautiful’ and how personally it spoke to me.” “The song is a true acceptance anthem and continues to inspire me with its important message to never stop celebrating who you are. I’m honored to have the opportunity to offer my rendition.” 

In related Smith-music news, Sam is about to release ‘Vulgar,” his collaboration with Madonna, who presented the British singer/songwriter and Kim Petras with their 2023 Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance prize for ‘Unholy’ earlier this year, adding:

“Are you ready for a little controversy? Come on people, let’s make some noise. Y’all are going to sleep over here.” “So, here’s what I’ve learned after four decades in music — if they call you shocking, scandalous, troublesome, problematic, provocative or dangerous, you’re definitely on to something.” “I’m here to give thanks to all the rebels out there forging a new path and taking the heat for all of it. You guys need to know — all you troublemakers out there — you need to know that your fearlessness doesn’t go unnoticed. You are seen, you are heard; and most of all, you are appreciated.” “So now, speaking of controversy, it gives me great pleasure to introduce two incredibly talented artists who have risen above the noise, the doubt, the critics; into something beautifully unholy. Here are two Grammy Award winners, Sam Smith and Kim Petras.”
