Tokyo 2020 might ben postponed, but Team LGBTQ is thriving in the fierce video for Sam Smith and Demi Lovato’s newly-released single ‘I’m Ready’.

The pair of queer pop superstars have teamed up for an athemic new track and video which sees them compete in our kind of global sporting event, complete with stiletto-clad wrestling, glittery synchronised swimming, and drag queen athletics.

In another stroke of genius, the latter competition sees a cameo from current RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 star and fan favourite Gigi Goode, who serves looks on the 100m start line.

The video for ‘I’m Ready’ is directed by award-winning filmmaker Jora Frantzis, who has previously helmed videos for Cardi B and Rosalía.

The track is the latest to be lifted from the Sam Smith’s upcoming third album, formerly known as To Die For, which was recently postponed pending a name change in the wake of the coronavirus crisis. Click here to read more
