What did you do with your dissertation? Jorja Smith used hers, written about postcolonialism in grime music, as inspiration for her self-released debut single ‘Blue Lights’. It earned her praise from Skrillex, Stormzy and even Drake for her fresh R&B that spans from the delicate beauty and impactful lyrics of her first single to the garage-infected vibes of ‘On My Mind’. At just 20 years old, and with her first album yet to be released, Jorja Smith has already toured the US with Bruno Mars, sold out the Shepherd’s Bush Empire twice, won herself the Brit Awards Critics’ Choice Award and guest starred at Drake’s UK headline shows. We predict her honesty and ageless melodies will steal your hearts – if they haven’t already.
