Sam Smith Taps Burna Boy For ‘My Oasis’
Sam Smith Burna Boy My Oasis: British Singer, Sam Smith has made a much-appreciated comeback with a new song featuring Nigerian superstar, Burna Boy. It is titled ‘My Oasis’ and dropped today as earlier announced.
“This track has been a beautiful release of emotions for me during this time,” Sam Smith said about the song in a statement. “I’ve been a fan of Burna Boy for years now and am so happy to have a tune with him.”
Back in April, Sam Smith teamed up with Demi Lovato for ‘I’m Ready’. The song was meant to be a part of their upcoming studio album which was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Originally called ‘To Die For’, Smith has revealed plans to change the title of the LP.
On “My Oasis,” Smith typically sings of needing someone helplessly. However, this partner doesn’t return the same affection.
“You play with my emotions/I’m flowing like the ocean/I pray for your devotion/’Cause there’s nothing I can do when it comes to you,” Smith sings on the chorus.
The Nigerian afrobeat singer-songwriter Burna Boy also reflects the same feelings of longing in his verse.
‘My Oasis’ was co-written with Jimmy Naples. Stream it below and don’t forget to air your thoughts in the comments.
