Sam Smith’s new song, Unholy, really caught our attention. It tells the story of a relationship in which secrets are kept. This isn’t the first time that Sam has written about betrayal, but it’s the first time that they’ve approached the the topic so extensively.
The husband character in Unholy is an unfaithful man who’s been cheating on his beloved wife. She’s not aware of what he’s doing, making the act of infidelity look more ‘unholy’.
Kim Petras plays the role of the ‘other woman’, who treats the hubby as a king. She’s happy to be getting all the benefits from their illicit affair, while he’s just trying to cover up his tracks.
The lyrics are satirical, and definitely not meant to be taken seriously. We consider them to be well-written. So go ahead and give Unholy‘ a spin – you’ll be glad you did.
