Sam Smith’s “How Will I Know” Invokes Sobbing

What’s that sound? Just the angelic voice of singing superstar, Sam Smith.

If heart-wrenching ballads “Stay With Me” and “Leave Your Lover” haven’t driven you to crying into your pillow, brace yourself for “How Will I know”, the Whitney Houston cover that’s got everyone sobbing.

Slowing down the up-tempo Houston classic, Smith emphasizes the fear and yearning at the core of the emotive track in exquisite fashion. The part where he tremblingly whispers “kiss me”? Done.

Hanging onto each note with baited breath, I’m desperate to know – exactly how will he know? How does this thing play out? What do you guys even know about these things?

Sigh, falling in love is so, so bittersweet.
