Sam Smith and Demi Lovato have teamed up on a new single.
Smith and Lovato shared a release date, Friday, and a promo photo for the song, titled “I’m Ready,” and its music video on Instagram. The photo shows Smith and Lovato wearing matching white athletic wear and gold medals. “I’M READY @ddlovato YOURS APRIL 17th,” Smith captioned the post. “Incredibly happy to release this song with my gorgeous and talented friend. I love you Demi!! Can’t wait for you all to hear it THIS FRIDAY xx.”
“I’M READY,” Demi responded, attaching a GIF with their initials.
Lovato’s manager, Scooter Braun, also retweeted the exchange, adding, “This week!! #SamxDemi.”
Smith said they asked Lovato to appear on the track in the wake of her 2018 overdose and hospitalization.
On March 30th, Smith announced their upcoming album To Die For was being postponed amidst the coronavirus pandemic, with an album title change in the works.
In a statement, the singer-songwriter explained, “I have done a lot of thinking the last few weeks and feel that the title of my album and imminent release doesn’t feel right.”
