    can’t even imagine what they could possibly do for a live performance (on a stage) i hope they’re asked to do a big one because it’s literally a cinematic masterpiece
  • Christy Chapman
    I love Sam's music but they really outdid themselves with this one. The lyrics, music and the video. I'm in love with it.
  • Ainda bem que existem artistas salvando o pop atualmente.
  • Idiot Hippie
    Who would've thought they could make cheating look so beautiful hahaha. Great choreography, costumes, set designs, performances, everything!
  • Dee Dee
    I’ve listened to the lyrics and watched the video about 100 times in 2 days . This song has a message and I love it!
  • KanariTV
    I’ve known Sam Smith for years now and hearing something like this from now just hits the spot, really love this song 😎
  • Ami Ohto
    It's the first time in YEARS I liked a pop song so much, they really created a masterpiece.
  • Ali
    This song is a masterpiece lyrics,singers choreography, theme and specialy the moves of sam is outstanding😊😊😊
  • Adiel Noel
    Eu amo a forma como essa música me faz me sentir poderosa, dona de mim.
  • Stumbled across this song on TikTok. Apparently I didn’t realize the lyrics were as mature until watching this and listening more closely. 😍 I love this song, and the performance/video was perfection. I would love to hear a part two or hear a longer version.
  • Ronie Piolino
    I'm amazed how the music video was arranged based on the lyrics. Good job!
  • Stephen Adu
    The choir at the beginning is just amazing.This song is so amazing and especially how their voice keeps playing around beautifully.
  • Gina Fusi
    I don't really listen to pop music but since this song/video dropped I became obsessed. It's beautifully shot. The dancers were amazing and beautiful.
  • Caroline May
    This was the best music video I’ve seen in so long, what an incredible dance performance and story told by artistic form. I rewatched this several times because there is so much subtle yet strong symbolism shown within the characters wardrobes, the themes, stage direction, videography, lighting choices…it all works to really create a masterpiece. Temptation, a lurking Lucifer, and ends in beautiful destruction. I can’t get over how amazing the dancers and costumes were. And Sam, I’m obsessed with you. I hope this performance wins some awards, its truly an incredible piece of work artistically, theatrically, and creatively. And the song is a BOP!! I’m just so impressed by this performance, it really is refreshing and so beautifully artistically expressed.
  • emma Murphy
    I'm not a Sam Smith fan but this song is an absolute master piece 👏
  • Mona Sharma
    Keep listening on repeat.... Masterpiece
  • A dark pop opera that emulates a wild sinful debauchery of a ride. The video completely complementary to the lyrics. Visually creative. The choreography is full of thrusting sexual energy that can't be tamed. It makes my musical spirit(raising an eyebrow) go hmmmm. Thanks sam smith
  • Sabrina Aguirre
    Not very many songs give me goosebumps but this gave me all of them. Such a masterpiece.
  • Tony G
    Total ear candy. It’s nice to hear a unique groove like this. Took a liking to it immediately!
