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. And we know we’re not the only ones who feel that way. So with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, VH1 asked fellow musical luminaries to step up and help make his day special. Hozier, Aloe Blacc, Pentatonix and others took time on the Grammy red carpet to write Sam some Valentine’s showing just how much we care. The messages were heartfelt and sweet, and Sam’s adorable reaction to the gift is truly priceless.
In The Lonely Hour has become one of the truly great breakup albums of all time, with its smash single “Stay With Me” propelling Sam to superstar status. Unfortunately, his devastatingly emotional music has also made him into the reigning heartbreak king of the pop world. We’re hoping that these notes of love (and his armful of Grammys) will help cheer him up. In the wise words of Aloe Blacc: true love is just around the corner, Sam!
