Since releasing the single, Stay With Me, Romain Virgo has been enjoying the attention of the song's original singer and writer, Sam Smith.
Via social media platform Twitter, Smith was told about Virgo’s cover, by BBC 1Xtra radio jock, DJ Toddla T. Smith’s response was swift and positive, saying: "Wow! I Just saw it. So sick!"
Smith's original version of Stay with Me reached number one in the UK and on the Billboard charts in America, with Romain's cover also riding high on several charts across the region. It is number one in St Lucia, Trinidad & Tobago, St Vincent & the Grenadines, Grenada and the Bahamas.
The song's accompanying video has so far received over 200,000 views on YouTube since August.
Virgo recently wrapped up a European tour, and his performance schedule is fully booked from the end of October into the New Year.
