The modern r&b/soul queen, Jorja Smith, is back to the UK garage world, after the highly acclaimed “On My Mind” with Preditah – where a lot of people found her from actually.
This week, she teamed up with UK rapper Jaykae & producer Ezrah for “1000 Nights” – a super captivating UKG-driven soul & grime/hip hop piece that’ll leave you speechless – and you will definitely appreciate how diverse her music is. And Jaykae, well, we’ll surely be following him closely from now on.
The official music video is absolutely stunning, with a powerful social message about “the tough decisions some of us are forced to make just to keep a roof over our families’ heads”.
It’s not glamorous and it’s not meant to be, it’s just a devastatingly simple explanation of how life is for some people.
