"Promises" sees the Scottish DJ channel the disco gods with a mid-tempo, slinky funk beat led by Smith's steamy vocals. "I make no promises / I can’t do golden rings / But I’ll give you everything," the 26-year-old crooner guarantees during the chorus. "Magic is in the air / There ain’t no science here / So come get your everything.”
Earlier this week Harris teased the collaboration, admitting he was very excited to release the track — and for good reason, because it's a banger.
Watch the "Promises" lyric video below.
"Promises" follows Harris' Dua Lipa smash, "One Kiss," which has been riding high on the Billboard Hot 100 for 17 weeks.
Smith, on the other hand, has been more focused on his The Thrill of It All Tour this summer and recovering from his breakup with 13 Reasons Why actor Brandon Flynn than with making new music. Hopefully this groovin' track has helped him put his cares aside and get back on the dance floor. The R&B crooner's last dance hit was his 2015 Disclosure collaboration, "Omen," and we hope "Promises" leads to more new tunes from the pop star.
