Song features Burna Boy
Sam Smith and Burna Boy join forces on Smith’s new track “My Oasis,” out now via Capitol Records. “My Oasis” marks the start of a new chapter for Smith who has to date sold over 25 million adjusted albums worldwide. Born from a mutual respect for one another, Smith and Burna Boy made this cross-continent collaboration happen over the last few months and the result is a brilliant song of love lost and longing, intertwining their distinctive vocals.
“This track has been a beautiful release of emotions for me during this time,” says Smith who wrote the track with Jimmy Napes and Burna Boy. “I’ve been a fan of Burna Boy for years now and am so happy to have a tune with him.”
Smith has released four smash singles over the course of the last year. The chart-topping collaboration with Normani, “Dancing with a Stranger,” has sold more than ten million units and racked up over two billion streams worldwide. It was followed by “How Do You Sleep?,” which has amassed over 600 million global streams, “To Die For,” which bowed on Valentine’s Day, and “I’m Ready” with Demi Lovato that premiered this spring. Since the release of Smith’s 2014 debut album, In The Lonely Hour, Smith has sold over 25 million adjusted albums worldwide and has won four GRAMMY Awards, an Oscar, a Golden Globe and three BRIT Awards. Smith’s sophomore album, The Thrill Of It All, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2017 and also topped the charts in the U.K, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands and Belgium.
