If you’re a fan of Disclosure’s critically acclaimed album, Settle, then you’re already familiar with Sam Smith’s voice. He was featured on the single, Latch, which is how his voice initially caught my attention. The 21-year-old Brit is poised to break out as a star in his own right with a solo album coming out later this year. He won the 2014 Brits Critic’s Choice Award and the BBC’s “Sound of 2014” music critics poll. If that’s any indication, his solo album, In The Lonely Hour, should be a success. In the meantime, he’s part of another great collaboration, this time with Naughty Boy. La La La feat. Sam Smith has been out for months in the UK, where it went to number 1 on the British Billboard Chart. The song has only been out for a little over a month here in the US, and it’s well worth a listen.
