Sam Smith is continuing promotion on his new album ‘In The Lonely Hour’ with the release of his latest single, ‘I’m Not The Only One,’ featuring A$AP Rocky. Listen to it here!
A$AP Rocky lends some bars to Sam Smith‘s “I’m Not The Only One” and the result is so damn amazing. Of course, that doesn’t mean the remix is not controversial — Rocky touches upon cheating, “idiotic” women, and prenups.
A$AP Rocky & Sam Smith’s ‘I’m Not The Only One’ — Remix References Beyonce
A$AP Rocky opens up the slow-paced track by referencing Beyonce before disappearing for the next two minutes. He returns toward the end, however, when he focuses on his prior relationship mistakes (i.e. cheating), and how they have affected his life and career.
Despite the controversial lyrics, we were pleasantly surprised to find that A$AP Rocky maintains the smooth vibe of the original track and proves to be an excellent addition to the song.
Check out the lyrics below and listen to the newly released track. Then, tell us what YOU think!
‘I’m Not The Only One’ Remix Lyrics
[Verse 1: A$AP Rocky]
A new disease in my town called Idiotic
Every pretty lady in my city got it, point blank
Periodically empty seats, dine at Ciprianis
Like Beyoncé, they’re getting by or they get embodied
So Sasha Fierce, a whole lot of tears
Rolling down her cheeks, crying till she’s sound asleep
Preach, pray that today is not a lonely one
You gotta know you not the only one
[Verse 2: Sam Smith]
You and me, we made a vow
For better or for worse
I can’t believe you let me down
But the proof is in the way it hurts
For months on end I’ve had my doubts
Denying every tear
I wish this would be over now
But I know that I still need you here
[Chorus: Sam Smith]
You say I’m crazy
Cause you don’t think I know what you’ve done
But when you call me baby
I know I’m not the only one
[Verse 3: Sam Smith]
You’ve been so unavailable
Now sadly I know why
Your heart is unobtainable
Even though Lord knows you kept mine
[Chorus: Sam Smith]
[Verse 4/Bridge: A$AP Rocky]
We all guilty of the same crime
If you ask me, I might’ve had a couple women at the same time
But you handle the pressure, Jack Daniels for breakfast
A cap of valium mixed with antidepressants, precious
My momma said that we need love
Till I found out life’s a bitch with no prenup, you’re on your own
Divorces or court splits, decisions and choices
The Porsche or the fortress? Ignore it or forefeit
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you a fan of the “I’m Not The Only One” remix?
