Disclosure ‘Latch’ Feat. Sam Smith (Live On Jimmy Kimmel)
It’s not a particularly well-kept secret (well it’s no secret at all) that SAM SMITH has been dominating the international music world of late, with his 2014 debut album In The Lonely Hour topping the charts with singles such as ‘Stay With Me‘ and ‘Leave Your Lover’.
Before this solo success though, his name was more recognisable alongside fellow Britons DISCLOSURE, as a feature vocalists on the production duo’s 2012 hit track, ‘Latch’ – some might even say this guest appearance was what help made Smith known.
Whilst the singer/songwriter has clearly tackled the US market, DISCLOSURE have now gained a slightly delayed mainstream exposure also, performing together with Smith on Jimmy Kimmel.
Whilst the degree of success differs between the two acts, this performance slightly feels like an odd scenario of ‘who’s helping who out?’, or simply the whole ‘chicken-and-egg’ dilemma. Regardless of this, it could only be beneficial for both parties as they continue to conquer the continents with chart-topper after chart-topper.
