‘Vulgar’ has been a long-time coming
Madge and Sam Smith first crossed paths last year when the Queen of Pop introduced Sam and Kim Petras for their Grammy’s performance.
“It was an honor for me to introduce Kim Petras and Sam Smith at the Grammys,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I wanted to give the last award which was Album of the year. But I thought it was more important that I present the first trans woman performing at the Grammys.
“A history making moment. And on top of that she won a Grammy.”
Could ‘Vulgar’ be the next Grammy-winning single for Sam Smith?
Decide for yourself, when the single comes out on June 10th.
