Heartbreak king Sam Smith paid tribute to Amy Winehouse by singing a soulful rendition of her single, “Love Is A Losing Game.” Debuting the song on Annie Mac’s BBC show, the smooth singing, sleek looking British star made Amy’s memory shine bright with his vocals. A word to the wise: consider investing a Costco-sized box of tissues before you press play. And heck, maybe even an oxygen tank—your heart probably can’t take the beauty.
After blowing everyone away, Sam discussed how much Amy meant to him as a little boy. “I was 11 years old when Frank [Amy’s first studio album] came out, and that album has really shaped my views on music and my relationship with music, lyrically.” More than four years after her death, Amy’s legacy lives on in the music of brilliant artists. Listening to this gorgeous song makes us wonder what kind of music Sam and Amy would have made together, had she lived.
The epic cover is now available on In the Lonely Hour: Drowning Shadows Edition, which dropped today.
