Happy Birthday Sam Smith! Celebrate His Birthday With Our Official Playlist


Get ready to celebrate Popmaniacs, Sam Smith is turning 25 today and we are just as excited as you are! After winning four Grammy awards and an Oscar, Sam Smith turned the radio waves upside down. The singer’s playlist has us singing and dancing throughout the office and we want you to join along. Here are the songs we’ll be listening to all day.

“Stay With Me” — Can we just obsess over how amazing Sam’s voice sounds in this song? With a mix of background vocals and his singing, we can’t seem to get this one out of our heads!

“Latch” — Whether you like the Disclosure version or Sam’s acoustic version of “Latch,” it’s the perfect showcase for his voice. We are glad we have you “in our space” today Sam. This is definitely one we will have on repeat!

“I’m Not The Only One” — We are definitely not the only ones who absolutely love this song! After 28 weeks on the Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, we know our radios played it constantly and we’ll admit– we sang our hearts out.

“Lay Me Down” — This awesome duet featuring John Legend brings us major chills. These singers have great voices and them singing together is a blast of genius. You can lay down by our side anytime Sam! We’ll bring the snacks and you bring John Legend.

“Nirvana” — This jazzy-funk song is different from Sam’s usual acoustic music, which is totally OK with us! Slow and cool fits his voice perfectly and is our anthem for the day.

“Like I Can” — Nothing can make us love Sam Smith more than this song. His unique voice and passion makes us swoon for more music in the near future! We’ll definitely be on the look out for more hits on the radio.
