“Unholy” was hailed as one of the best songs of 2022 by Rolling Stone, which noted, ‘Smith…stepped away from their signature ballad sound to create a catchy, dirty song about a ‘daddy getting hot at the body shop’ behind mummy’s back.” The song appeared on numerous other critics’ list, including Associated Press, Billboard and Esquire, with the later observing, “With sultry lyrics and a music video that’ll make just about anyone clutch their pearls, ‘Unholy’ is the ultimate party anthem.”
