In the midst of Pride Month, Sam Smith and Madonna’s ‘Vulgar’ is voted the best new song of the week.
Fans of music selected the pop duo’s new track as their favourite new song release of the previous week in a survey. With more than 45% of the votes, ‘Vulgar’ triumphed over new songs from BTS, Niall Horan, Rosalía and other artists.
The club-ready song, which was released by Capitol Records, features Smith stating that “you know you’re beautiful when they call you ‘vulgar.'”
The release of ‘Vulgar’ came after a brief period of social media tease by Smith, who introduced some smart new branding for the collaboration with Madonna: ‘S&M.’
BTS’ ‘Take Two,’ which received 41% of the vote, and Horan’s latest album ‘The Show’, which received 9% of the vote, were the two songs that followed Vulgar’ in the poll.
