Sam Smith "Leave Your Lover" (video)
Published May 22, 2014While not entirely suggesting that three's a crowd, the video for UK pop singer Sam Smith's "Leave Your Lover" certainly hints at complications when there are multiple friends around.
The bulk of the video for the piano ballad finds Smith and a pair of pals having a blast on city streets and champagne-poppin' parties, with the trio often tenderly pawing at each other. There are cuddles in flats, and kisses on the dance floor, but Smith's tender coo of "leave your lover for me" suggest he's angling for some one-on-one time with his special someone at some point. It gets even more complicated once we realize the true nature of Smith's unrequited request.
Smith's debut album In the Lonely Hour arrives June 17 through Columbia Records.
