Sam Smith looks like he’s living his best life in Tampa

I mean just look at the boy.

Sam Smith spent nearly two hours wooing more than 11,000 fans at Tampa’s Amalie Arena on Friday night, but his work didn’t stop there.

The 26-year-old London-based singer spent some time after the show greeting fans outside of the venue, and the overtime doesn’t seem to have taken its toll on Smith who obviously woke up on the right side of the bed today.

Just look at this pic he took outside of Amalie Arena.

"Tampa" he wrote on Instagram. "I love you all so much xx my heart is beating out of my chest right now xx."

You do you, Sam, and come back soon.
