After taking a short break through quarantine, pop superstar Sam Smith has returned with new music on Thursday (July 30).
“My Oasis,” featuring Nigerian superstar Burna Boy, is out now. “You play with my emotions/ I’m flowin’ like the ocean/ I pray for your devotion/ ‘Cause there’s nothing I can do when it comes to you,” Smith croons on the chorus.
“This track has been a beautiful release of emotions for me during this time,” Smith said in a press release. “I’ve been a fan of Burna Boy for years now and am so happy to have a tune with him.”
Smith penned the hypnotic track with Jimmy Napes and Burna Boy.
“My Oasis” comes following Smith’s decision back in March to postpone and rename their third studio album. Originally titled To Die For and slated for a May 1 release, the singer revealed in an Instagram post that the timing and title of the album didn’t “feel right” to them, but promised fans that “I am still going to bring out some new music over the next few months.”
