Published Jun 02, 2014A new remix of Sam Smith's powerful "Stay With Me" is bringing the ballad to new heights by pairing the soul singer's sorrowful croon with a guest appearance from R&B icon Mary J. Blige. The revamp of the In the Lonely Hour single is streaming now.
The song plays fairly similar to the original, with Smith starting off with lines about botched one-night-stand situations, while the Queen of Hip Hop Soul tackles the second verse's lines about the unappealing aspects of the overly emotional. Still here are the booming gospel choir and the soul-stirring organ sounds.
You'll find the redo down below.
As previously reported, In the Lonely Hour arrives June 17 via Columbia Records, and Smith takes the tunes to North America this fall. You'll find the show info over here.
