Although she was on the fringe for a while, it wasn’t until she received the Drake Stimulus Package — courtesy of her appearances on both “Jorja Interlude” and “Get It Together” from his More Life project — that Jorja Smith‘s profile began to rise.
The English singer now returns with her first single of 2018, “Let Me Down.” “It’s about meaning very little to someone but being okay with that even though it hurts,” she explains. “Letting you down is all they do but it’s better than nothing.”
Also guesting Stormzy, Jorja spoke with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe on how the collaboration happened. “I remember I was in studio with [producer] Ed Thomas,” she said. “And he was playing the chords on the piano and I was singing, and Stormzy kind of drifted in and out… that’s kind of what he does on the verse. It was just beautiful and magical. I think we made a really special moment, and he’s such a nice guy.”
