Sam Smith and Adam Lambert are good buds (and even slight twins given a certain lighting), but are they working on something together? Something that would likely be an emotionally-laden pop track blending their two styles and voices?

The jury is still out on that one, but Lambert started the rumor when he shared a video on his Instagram page today (October 7). In it, he and Smith ride around London. The two initially just stare goofily at the camera before Lambert croaks “London town” in an affected accent. Smith banters back at his buddy, before offering up a new hashtag, “Rickshaw vibes,” after the jumbling and bouncy ride they’re in.
Smith has been working on his follow-up to his 2014 album In the Lonely Hour, saying about his new music, “I’m putting my heart even more out on the f—ing line. I’m going even deeper. I can’t believe I’m even doing it, but I’m going even deeper” (via Rolling Stone). In the Lonely Hour was already deeply personal, focusing as it did on a breakup. Next up for Lambert, he will soon play Eddie in the upcoming televised musical version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
They may just be hanging out and enjoying London, but these two friends need to hit the studio together soon if they haven’t already.
