Recording artist Sam Smith is a trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community, having been one of the few celebrities to identify as nonbinary. The pop star decided to adopt the pronouns "they/them," not "he/him," in 2019. The singer is known for their soulful voice and record hits like, "Lay Me Down," "Stay with Me," "Too Good at Goodbyes," among others. Smith had also been in a romantic relationship with “13 Reasons Why” actor Brandon Flynn. When they made the nonbinary announcement on Instagram, Smith said, "I understand there will be many mistakes and mis-gendering but all I ask is you please please try. I hope you can see me like I see myself now. Thank you."

Sam Smith is back with new music. The singer just dropped the brand new tune “Love Me More,” along with a video for the song.

The track is an obvious song about self-love and knowing your own worth, with Sam singing in the chorus, “Have you ever felt like being somebody else/ Feeling like the mirror isn’t good for your health,” adding, “Every day I’m trying not to hate myself/ But lately, it’s not hurting like it did before/ Maybe I am learning how to love me more.”

“I’m overjoyed to announce the release of my new song ‘Love Me More.’ It feels like the perfect way to begin this new chapter with you,” Sam shares. “It’s taken a lifetime to be able to express this type of joy and honesty in my music and I am so happy to have you all here with me.” They add, “I hope you love it… welcome to the beginning of a new era. This is gonna be fun.”
