Sam-Smith-cover

At 22-years-old, Sam Smith is pretty much sitting on top of the world. His debut album, In The Lonely Hour, scored the highest first-week sales for a debut album from a male UK artist in SoundScan’s twenty-three year history. Not a bad feat for a kid barely old enough to buy beer in the States.

In VIBE’s latest digital cover, the British singer talks about his ascension to the top of the charts, not competing with anyone, his fellow UK singers and more.

“At this point, he’s only competing against himself because there’s no one else like him,” says ‘Stay’ producer Rodney Jerkins. “Anyone who can tour without fireworks, explosions and thirty dancers and can just stand there alone on stage and capture an audience is the real deal.”

What’s the best advice you’ve received so far in regards to your career?
Sam Smith: It was from Lady Gaga. I was having a bad day and I was thinking, what is my place? Who am I as an artist? What do I stand for? Lady Gaga was on the Ryan Seacrest show and she said ‘I just hope that Sam stays himself and carries on being himself.’ And she’s someone I’ve looked up to my whole life and for her to say that about me was such an incredible moment. That’s all I need to do. Stop worrying and stop trying to look like a supermodel or try and sound like a certain type of artist and just be myself and enjoy it.
