Video of the Moment #2891: Calvin Harris feat. Sam Smith

 
By on Thursday, 6th September 2018 at 6:00 pm
 

Scottish dance giant Calvin Harris‘s latest new tune stars fellow hitmaker Sam Smith on vocals. The song in question, ‘Promises’, now has its own music video. It was directed by Harris’ longtime collaborator Emil Nava and was filmed “in a gritty downtown warehouse-turned-dancing-paradise”. As one might expect for a dance floor banger, it gets the dancing-inclined out on the floor, specifically in this promo some prime voguers. You know, those people who you see at clubs, oozing with so much charisma you just can’t look away when they take all of the attention in the room. In this video, we even get a few twirls from and closeups of Smith himself! Watch it below. ‘Promises’ is out now on from Columbia Records. Catch our past coverage on Calvin Harris and Sam Smith here on TGTF through this and this link, respectively.

So what has Grammy winning crooner Sam Smith been up to lately? Apparently busy promoting a new single that has gone to #1 in the UK, ‘Too Good at Goodbyes’. The song now has its own music video. In it, the singer, who looks svelte as if he’s lost a significant amount of weight (?), is shown as a bystander to lend his dulcet tones to those in relationships, straight and gay. Of course, his falsetto gets a workout, and the song is probably worth a listen for that alone. Watch the music video for ‘Too Good at Goodbyes’ below.
