Unholy (feat. Kim Petras) (Clean Version)

Unholy Clean Lyrics

Unholy (feat. Kim Petras) (Clean Version) emerges as a captivating collaboration between British singer Sam Smith and German singer Kim Petras, released on September 22, 2022, as the second single from Smith’s fourth studio album, Gloria (2023), and a bonus track on Petras’s debut studio album, Feed the Beast (2023). Produced by a talented team including Ilya, Omer Fedi, Blake Slatkin, Jimmy Napes, and Cirkut, and co-written by them alongside Smith and Petras, the song embraces sexually charged electropop, dance-pop, and synth-pop elements, enriched with choral and hyperpop influences. Utilizing the Phrygian dominant scale, the lyrics explore the story of a family man who succumbs to adultery at a strip club, while Smith describes the song as a liberating anthem, breaking free from the shackles of others’ secrets. The infectious hook, “Mummy don’t know Daddy’s getting hot/At the Body Shop/Doing something unholy,” pays homage to the iconic chant popularized by the winged monkeys in the film The Wizard of Oz. Petras’s verse adds a touch of braggadocio and luxury as she asks her lover to indulge her with extravagant clothing. The song achieved commercial success, reaching number 10 on the UK Singles Chart and number 13 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, while earning critical acclaim for its impeccable production, Smith’s captivating vocals, and Petras’s powerful verse. Interestingly, the song’s title serves as a direct reference to the adulterous act portrayed in the lyrics, signifying its “unholy” nature. The music video, directed by Grant Singer, sets the stage in a dark and atmospheric setting, featuring Smith and Petras, adding visual allure to the song’s allure. Drawing from Smith’s personal experiences with infidelity, “Unholy” blends artistry with honesty, making it an intriguing and powerful addition to both artists’ discography. Sam Smith, Kim Petras ‘s Unholy Clean lyrics are provided below.
