In his Baeble review of Sam Smith's
debut LP In The Lonely Hour
, Adlan Jackson described the feeling of being transported to the backseat of his mom's car, listening to her radio as a child. It's a flashback that most 80s and 90s kids will experience when hearing the singer whose voice chillingly resembles the great sounds of R&B past. But how does his voice stand up against one of history's finest? Sadly, we'll never hear a Sam Smith-Whitney Houston duet, but the UK newcomer's decelerated cover of Whitney's 1985 love pop classic "How Will I Know" gives us a closer glimpse.
