It’s a dream come true for mega-Fifth Harmony fan Sam Smith. The singer has announced his new collaboration with Normani.
The song, called “Dancing with a Stranger,” will be released on January 11. The track is described as, “a smooth slice of sultry, R&B influenced pop.”
“I’m so excited for everyone to hear ‘Dancing with a Stranger,’ which I wrote on The Thrill of it All tour last year,” Sam says in a statement. “For me it bottles everything I was feeling whilst juggling my personal life and touring.”
He adds, “It is also such a beautiful moment for me as I’m a huge, huge fan of Normani and everything she is. I’m so excited to watch her light shine. I hope everyone enjoys hearing this song as much as I do.”
In her own statement, Normani says in part: “I’m truly blessed having the opportunity to create with one of the greatest vocalists of this decade.”
The collaboration came about totally by chance. Sam happened to be recording in the studio next door to Normani in L.A. when the two decided to join forces.
