It was only a matter of time before Sam Smith hopped onto a Kim Petras song. “Unholy” bends their respective musical sensibilities like candlelight, flickering and casting a weirdly enchanted glow. “I hear them whisperin’’ ’bout the places that you’ve been,” sings Smith, calling out the promiscuity of another. When the beat drops in, Petras takes the reins with a cool vocal grind, singing, “Give me love, give me Fendi, my Balenciaga daddy / You gon’ need to bag it up, ’cause I’m spending on Rodeo.” It’s nothing if not a true sex-pot of a song.
