Jorja Smith Unveils Video For “Feelings” feat J Hus
Jorja Smith has unveiled the accompanying video for “Feelings”; a track taken from her second album falling or flying which she released last month.
Directed by British Director Femi Ladi, the video mirrors the age-old story of ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ – but this time with a twist. Starring Top Boy actress Jasmine Jobson, the storyline showcases multiple different characters for both stars, offering up a cinematic and incredibly thrilling plot of criminals on the run.
Jorja’s second album, falling or flying, is a sonically vast record – sometimes sleek and shiny R&B, sometimes vibey and heated UK funky, elsewhere intense and raw alternative – is a record which finds an artist stepping into a new chapter.
Jorja’s acknowledging the ever-whirring cogs of her brain but also moving through it, growing, respecting herself above everything else. It’s why the defiant lead single “Try Me” – an astute, self-dissecting take on being viewed by the public gaze over bold, intricate beats – is also the opening track of the album. She explains: “It’s kind of ‘BAM!’, you know? It whacks you right in the face, it sounds like an entrance.” She credits the record’s slick and assured musicality to production duo DAMEDAME*: “I feel like making the album brought me back home,” she smiles, warmly. “Where you’re from is where you get your powers, and that’s why I’m so grateful I could make this with DAMEDAME* – they still have their roots in the ground from back home. And we had so much fun making this.”
