Sam Smith recruits Logic to breathe new life into his sorrowful pop ballad, “Pray”, off his latest studio release The Thrill of it All.
Adding his hip hop flavor to the gospel-influenced tune, the rapper opens up the track with a hard-hitting verse. “I’ve been thinking lately / Will the Devil take me? / Or will God protect me? / I know I ain’t perfect, but you should respect me,” he says in the song, addressing his haters.
The music video, directed by Joe Connor, is set in a majestic 19th-century mansion in Cernobbio, Italy—and the clip is luxurious from start to finish.
