Unholy Song Meaning Revealed

June 26, 2023

When Sam Smith and Kim Petras released their single Unholy, they took the world by storm. The song was a huge hit, even making it to the Billboard Hot 100 which is an impressive feat for the pair. The success of the song and controversy around it has left many people wondering what it means. In this article, we will look at the real meaning of the song and see what Sam and Kim really meant when they wrote it.

The main theme of the song centers on adultery. The lyrics talk about a man who cheats on his wife with a sex worker. He confides in Sam Smith that he can’t keep his affairs clean and she would kick him out if she knew. He is always going to the “body shop” which is probably a reference to the infamous all-nude strip club on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles.

The main idea of the song is that infidelity is wrong and destroys families. The song is a scathing attack on the subject and condemns those who commit it. This was a huge change for Sam Smith who is known for his sad piano ballads about his past male lovers. His performance of the song at the Grammys also sparked controversy and caused some people to be offended by it. In the video, he and Petras were dressed in red and had devil horns on their hats. This caused some people to believe that the performance was satanic and demonic.
