Did Sam Smith Give Up?

So Sam Smith came back with his second era last year. It started in September with the lead single "Too Good At Goodbyes". The song peaked at #4 in the US and spent 16 weeks in the Top 10. 

 

He released his next single to radio in Europe only. The song is called "One Last Song".

 

The song "Pray" was sent to Adult Contemporary radio in the US, peaking only at #23. 

 

So since "Too Good At Goodbyes" was released in September, there's been no properly released single in the US. That's almost 6 months. 

 

And another thing to add here is that the failure to promote has made "Too Good At Goodbyes" plummet down the chart, after leaving the top 10. Like, it's falling FAST, for a song that was in the top 10 for 16 weeks. 

here's how it's charting:

Too Good At Goodbyes (2017/2018) *16 weeks in Top 10*
1st Week: #5 
2nd Week: #16 
3rd Week: #14
4th Week: #13 
5th Week: #7 
6th Week: #8
7th Week: #9 
8th Week: #10 
9th Week: #4 - PEAK POSITION
10th Week: #6 
11th Week: #7
12th Week: #6
13th Week: #6 
14th Week: #7
15th Week: #8 
16th Week: #8
17th Week: #7 
18th Week: #8 
19th Week: #9
20th Week: #13
21st Week: #20 
22nd Week: #28 
23rd Week: #39 (still charting)

His music isn't interesting enough and he's not Adele. Period. :lolga:

let's not what? this thead isn't even bashing him. It praised his 16 weeks in the top 10. It's a genuine question about what's going on with his single releases

Worldwide success? Too Good At Goodbyes beats it by miles.

We like to think "Million Reasons" was a worldwide smash but I wouldn't even say it was a moderate US hit.

" ... is that the failure to promote has made "Too Good At Goodbyes" plummet down the chart, after leaving the top 10. Like, it's falling FAST, for a song that was in the top 10 for 16 weeks. "

You're suggesting as if the song is a complete failure when it's not. That's all.

Some of y'all 

Ppl can't say a song is flopping cuz Gaga’s singles did worse? No one was talking about Gaga in the first place. Plus this thread wasn't even about Sam flopping overall.

Well maybe the definition of "flopping" should be revised because as far as I know, fans here treat "Million Reasons" as if it was one of the biggest hits in 2017. 

So in a Gaga forum, I wouldn't mind comparing just to give proportions.

I love his new album, I think it's a treasure, ESPECIALLY One Last Song. He's the type of artist who can let a song sit on for months and MONTHS at a time, and then release a new single whenever. He's fine. His music is so much more of a slow burn.
