Today, Capitol Records released Sam Smith’s new single, “I’m Ready” with Demi Lovato.
“I’m Ready” is an unabashed slice of pop perfection – a bold declaration by the pair that they are ready to be loved. Their emotive vocals soar over a powerful gospel chorus and pulsating bassline. The global superstars announced their collaboration earlier this week via Instagram.
The video finds Sam and Demi competing in a variety of Olympian events – wrestling, diving, synchronized swimming, gymnastics and a 100 meter race – culminating in a medal ceremony as the song reaches its epic climax.
“I’m Ready” will appear on Smith’s third studio album, due out later this year. The single is the first of the new music Smith promised fans in this recent album postponement announcement.
