18 years of age, and with only one song to her name, Jorja Smith is still one hell of a force to be reckoned with, and this is only the beginning. Hailing from Walsall, UK, Jorja Smith is a vocalist, who has, as is evident from the attention she is receiving on her impressive debut ‘Blue Lights’, got a lot more up her sleeve to sit tight about. Lyrically, the song is a potent social commentary on her hometown and the people and places she grew up around. Inspired by Dizzee Rascal’s track, ‘Sirens’ (which is sampled in ‘Blue Lights’), she allows her soulful R&B-flecked voice to guide us on a journey over synthetic chords produced by Joice.
With every listen, it is hard to ignore how real and intelligent her songwriting is, ultimately marking the beginnings of what could be an incredible career.
