This week’s Song of the Week comes from a rising UK singer who deserves your full attention: Jorja Smith!
After breaking out properly in 2016 with the still-everything “Blue Lights“, a slew of high-profile singles and collaborations with the likes of Kali Uchis and most notably Drake (“Get It Together” and “Jorja Interlude“, the future-R&B songstress is back making waves once again with he latest offering: “On My Mind“!
The track is a slight change in pace from the more delicate, heaven-sent affairs Jorja is known for as she laces her soulful vocals across a shape-shifting, garage House production, crafted by bass icon Preditah. “I finally found what went wrong/ You think I would mind/ Oh, you think I, oh/ I finally found the wrong in you/ You think I would mind,” she croons on-top of the bouncy electronic R&B pulse and warm synths gently floating in the distance.
It this true love — or a beautiful disaster. In any case, there’s no risk in getting familiar with Miss Jorja: She’s certainly a sure thing, and only continuing to prove herself as one of the UK’s most exciting rising talents.
