Off his second album, Sam smith surprised the world when released "Too Good at goodbyes". The song came about from a "delusional moment" Smith had after being dumped.

Pink has had quite a year, with her new album and it all started with 'What About Us'. At face value, the lyrics read from the perspective of someone in a turbulent relationship, but they can be just as easily interpreted as a plea for guidance in this confusing political climate.
