I never doubted that it would work, I think mainly because I’m a student of Demi’s voice probably. Growing up listening to her music and singing her music and trying to sing like Demi Lovato, I’ve been training for this moment for a long time. I absolutely adore her.

The Stay With Me singer added: “As well as her incredible talent, everything she stands for as a human being is what I believe in and I just adore her. So, I’m so happy it’s worked and I hope this isn’t the last time we sing together.

Sam is glad to get the best of Demi after her 2018 drug overdose left her in an awful place: “She came to the studio and she’s in an amazing place,” Smith added. “She’s the strongest person I’ve ever known and what she’s gone through is something that I can’t imagine how she’s felt at times..

I have struggled myself with loads of mental health issues and watching her journey and her composure through all of this is just so inspiring to me.
