Sam Smith’s track “Pray” was a collaboration with his oft-used creative partner Jimmy Napes and produced by Timbaland. The song received a lot of airtime on episodes of late night TV and awards shows, notably Smith’s performance on Saturday Night Live. Now, Smith has decided to revive the song with a feature from Logic, a rapper who has gained popularity exponentially over the last year or so.
Smith shared his inspiration for the track: “We are all looking around at what’s happening in the world and it is just messed up,” he said. “You’ve got no choice but to look up to the sky and put your hands together and pray for something to happen.”
Logic said that despite his growth, he has remained true to his personality and rap as a means of self-expression. “Rap, it’s my way to vent and let other people know that I’ve been there and I know what it’s like,” he said.
Smith shared a clip of the new collaboration on his Instagram. “Gorgeous people…my new single Pray featuring @logic is officially out now.”
