Listen: Sam Smith Joins Calvin Harris on Bouncy Track “Promises”

A last-minute contender for the song of the summer.

After a week of teasing and hint-dropping on social media, Calvin Harris and Sam Smith dropped their first collaboration—and it does not disappoint.

Written by Harris, Smith, and Jessie Reyez, “Promises” serves as a perfect follow up to Calvin’s collaboration with Dua Lipa on the hit “One Kiss” and the perfect late summer bop we needed for our pre-game playlist.
