Renowned non-binary pop icon Sam Smith has recently provided a much-needed update to their fans following a series of canceled shows due to a severe vocal cord injury. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, widely known for their unapologetic stance against bigotry, not only assures fans of their recovery but also announces a highly anticipated collaboration with the iconic Queen of Pop herself, Madonna.
The setback occurred during Smith’s Gloria tour, midway through their performance at the AO Arena in Manchester on May 24. They abruptly left the stage, citing “vocal issues,” leading to the subsequent cancellation of shows in Birmingham and Glasgow upon medical advice. However, a ray of hope has emerged for disappointed fans through an Instagram reel shared by Smith on June 3, titled “Dear Sailors.”
In the video, Smith expresses their gratitude to fans for their support and shares the positive news received after a week of vocal setbacks. The singer confirms that they are on track to resume their tour, bringing relief and excitement to supporters around the world. Smith sincerely apologizes to those who missed out on their live performances and vows to do everything in their power to return as soon as possible.
Amidst the disappointment expressed by fans over missed concerts, the majority emphasize the importance of prioritizing Smith’s well-being and self-care. Messages of love and healing energy flood the comments, urging the artist to take the time they need for recovery. These heartfelt sentiments reflect the deep admiration and connection fans have with Smith’s music and the challenges they have bravely faced throughout their career.
In addition to the encouraging news about their health, Sam Smith has recently delighted fans by announcing their collaboration with Madonna on a new single titled “Vulgar,” scheduled for release on June 9. The exciting revelation came during the Manchester show that Smith was forced to cancel abruptly. Teasers for the collaboration were shared by both Smith and Madonna on social media, igniting anticipation and causing a frenzy among their devoted followers.
Madonna, a longstanding ally of the LGBTQ+ community, has often pushed boundaries with her provocative outfits, including corsets, throughout her illustrious five-decade career. Similarly, Smith’s fearless expression and willingness to challenge societal norms have also led them to don daring corset-based looks in photoshoots and during their Gloria tour, garnering both admiration and backlash.
The upcoming release of “Vulgar” promises an electrifying musical fusion between two trailblazing artists who have consistently championed LGBTQ+ rights. Fans eagerly await this sensational collaboration, anticipating an audacious and captivating experience that embodies their shared commitment to artistic expression, empowerment, and breaking barriers.
“Vulgar” by Sam Smith and Madonna is set to drop on June 9, inviting music enthusiasts worldwide to embark on a thrilling sonic journey.
