UNHOLY
by SAM SMITH/KIM PETRAS


Unholy marked the chart-topping return of UK singer Sam Smith and the arrival of Los Angeles-based German singer and songwriter Kim Petras, gifting Sam their eighth UK Number 1 in total and Kim her first. The hyperpop banger marked a change from the usual Sam Smith fare and rewarded them grandly, when it spent four weeks atop the Official UK Singles Chart. Unholy was one of the UK's biggest songs of 2022.

Smith and Petras co-wrote and co-produced the song with Smith’s regular collaborator, English song writer and producer Jimmy Napes (James Napier), Iranian-Swedish producer Ilya Salmanzadeh, Canadian producer Cirkut (Henry Walter), Californian songwriter Blake Slatkin and Israeli songwriter and producer Omer Fedi.
