Sam Smith‘s songs are among the most popular and achingly beautiful on the Top 40 today. They are also super depressing and make us want to give him a huge hug.

It’s here! Rihanna shared a sneak peek of her new music on Twitter tonight, and it’s better than we could have imagined. New Riri tracks are always a reason to celebrate (especially after a too-long two years), but this track boasts appearances from both Kanye West AND Sir Paul McCartney! Thank you for making our wildest pop dreams come true, Rihanna…
