Sam Smith & A$AP Rocky Team Up For One Poppy Downer

Even after a summer of "Stay With Me," Sam Smith's sad songs don't feel played out. His debut LP, In The Lonely Hour, just reclaimed the top spot on the UK charts, and when he's not off covering Tracy Chapman, he's snagging other artists to guest star on his tracks.
Building on the successful "Stay With Me" collaboration with Mary J. Blige, Smith had A$AP Rocky put his twist on "I'm Not The Only One." The track is all about infidelity, and Smith's version is an emotional roller coaster spun over a swanky hotel lounge beat. A$AP's contribution — with all his Beyoncé references — fits right in.
Check it out below. At this rate, with everyone and their mother (FKA twigs included) offering up interpretations of Smith's songs, the 22-year-old should just put out a Sam Smith Featuring... album and land another number one spot on the charts. (Pitchfork)
