Don’t come there anymore. I mean, for now… One of the most anticipated music releases of the last few weeks, “UNHOLY” has had its release date pushed back. Last Tuesday, the singer Sam Smith updated on their social networks the day their new single, a feat. with the singer Kim Petras, will arrive on digital platforms. Initially scheduled to be released today, September 15th, the song can only be heard in full from the day 22, next Thursday.
The change, which took fans by surprise, has a solemn motive. Because of the traditions surrounding the wake of the Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom (who passed away on the 8th), the singer, who is British, decided to postpone the release of his song by a week. At 5 pm yesterday (14), local time, Westminster Hall, in London, England, was opened for the public wake of the monarch. Burial will only take place on the morning of next Monday, the 19th.
A little over two weeks ago, even without having the single release date confirmed, Sam Smith had already released the pre-save for fans. Since the 18th of August, when the Briton used his official profile on TikTok to release the first preview of the song, the track went viral on the short video platform!
The video, which showed the artist in a studio next to Petrasaccumulates more than one million likes and 11 million views! The official audio has also been used more than 50 thousand times in videos created by other users, becoming a real success. By the way, will this be the first song by Sam Smith to reach the top of Billboard HOT 100? Throughout his career, the artist only had six tracks in the Top 10; being “stay with me” the best performer, peaking in second place.
