For the newer fans, you may recognize Jorja Smith‘s name from her recent work on Drake‘s More Life project. For others, the breathtaking Midlands singer has been making noise since last year’s Project 11…nonetheless, Jorja is poised to continue her musical ascent as the weather cools down.
This week, she teams up with highly-touted Brum producer Preditah for the new single “On My Mind,” a dope Garage cut that sees Jorja singing about someone she still loves, but — do to what sounds like infidelity — wants to erase him/her from her mind:
Why on earth would I leave
If you were everything I wanted you to be?
When I saw what you did, who you were with
Got me questionin’ the things that I believe
So I ask myself, do I let you go?
Or do I keep you in the frame of my mind?
Now I’m growing wise to your sugar-coated lies…
Despite the subject matter, the track is perfect for any dancefloor, which worldwide-reaching potential…”On My Mind” also continues the 2017 momentum gathered from other recent drops “Beautiful Little Fools” and “Teenage Fantasy.”
Enjoy “On My Mind” (out now via iTunes) below, along with footage of Jorja Smith’s recent show in Toronto (her first there) — which saw a surprise appearance from 6 God himself.
