‘Lay Me Down’ was the first single that made me fall in love with Sam Smith’s voice and emotional storytelling via his lyrics. Hearing him sing this song on Saturday Night Live more than 9 months ago had such a major affect on me, I immediately purchased his record – based off of this one song. It was that beautiful.
Earlier this month, we were finally treated to the official video of this heartfelt track. Check it out.
Kendrick Lamar hit Saturday Night Live over the weekend with a live band and two tracks from Good Kid, m.A.A.d City, which has been certified gold.
Lamar handled his SNL debut smoothly and impressively, and proves that this particular appearance was just another benchmark in the bright career of the Compton emcee.
