20-some years ago, if you grooved to Jamiroquai’s “Virtual Insanity,” with its soul tinged sound and funky beat, then it’s likely Calvin Harris and Sam Smith’s “Promises’” will appeal to you.
Within weeks of its release, “Promises” raced to #1 on the British pop chart and now it’s catching fire with Top 40 listeners stateside.
“Promises” combines Smith’s soulful singing style with the energetic Electronic Dance House beat that Calvin Harris is known for, and which is the foundation for this track that’s hooked listeners around the world.
This is the tenth #1 for Scotland’s production genius Harris and a seventh #1 for singer/songwriter Smith.
Promises ranks #23 on the this week’s Top 40 chart.
