Smith recently submitted a list of his 10 favorite R&B songs, which included How Will I Know, to Rolling Stone Smith told the magazine:

“A Whitney Houston song that makes me happy—it’s a feel-good song. I love the juxtaposition of a melancholy lyric with an upbeat sound. People forget that’s how she rose to fame. The more mature Whitney, like I Will Always Love You, came later.”

Watch the cover if you haven’t already, it’s great!

Sam the numbers don’t lie, I think you know how we really love you!
