Here's why Sam Smith almost quit music

Singer Sam Smith says there was a time when he wanted to give up his music career.

The 25-year-old musician with the release of his debut album In the Lonely Hour in 2014 but came close to quitting the showbiz after his previous relationship ended, according to FemaleFirst.

“I was in a really bad place. I got dumped, which was not very nice. Writing music about that kind of thing is normally like therapy for me, but this time I couldn’t write for about two months. My team had to force me to get into the studio because I almost felt I didn’t want to do it any more.

“There were moments on there where it got a bit intense and I started to lose myself. I was just too sad. Then I started drinking a lot, going out too much,” Smith told to Elton John in the new issue of Attitude magazine.

The Oscar-winning singer recently released his new single ‘Too Good at Goodbyes’ after a hiatus of three years.
