Sam Smith and Kim Petras recently shared a music video for their collaboration, “Unholy,” the lead single from Smith’s fourth studio album.
Floria Sigismondi directed the video choreograhped by French dance collective (LA)HORDE. The visual stars Smith as a singing MC and Petras as a lustful dancer.
The visual shows the song’s subject ducking out on his wife and sneaking off to his favorite sex club cabaret. But he soon finds his guilty pleasures revealed in a very public manner.
When the song’s subject sneaks away from his wife for a night at the club, hidden under the guise of an actual auto body shop, he finds that the performance for the night is eerily reflecting his secret guilty pleasures back to him in a not-so-secret manner.
By the end of the visual, the man ends up on the hood of a car on stage, laying upside down with the word “cheater” spray painted beneath him. As the crowd parts, his wife walks down the runway and joins the ensemble as the curtains close.
The song debuted atop the U.K. Official Singles Chart, earning Smith their eighth No. 1 on the list. The single hit No. 1 worldwide on Apple Music and Spotify, where it also ranked among the Top 10 debuts of all time within the first 24 hours of release.
