Sam Smith and Normani have two-stepped their way to another double platinum hit thanks to their global smash duet, ‘Dancing With a Stranger.’
The tune – released in January 2019 – was an out-of-the-box hit with fans and critics. Eventually blasting its way to a peak of #7 on the Billboard Hot 100, the success of the Stargate-produced track gifted Smith his sixth run in the tally’s topmost dectet (Normani’s second as a solo act).
The song’s endurance on streaming and sales formats has kept it a mainstay in the top 20 some 7 months later (coming in at #19 this week as we reported here) and helped it pass the Recording Industry Association of America’s threshold for double platinum status!
Congrats are certainly due to Capitol Records and the unlikely pair for scoring one of the biggest hits of the year.
