Jorja Smith Premieres New Song “Little Things” on BBC Radio 1
British singer-songwriter Jorja Smith premiered a new song “Little Things” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is the follow-up to “Try Me”, which was released last month.
It was written by Jorja Smith, Edith Nelson, Barbara Boko Hyouyhat, Michael Stafford, Adam Jordan and Richard Isong. Produced by P2J and New Machine.
Jorja Smith said of the song in a statement, “The song is pretty self-explanatory: I had a lil concoction - rum, ting, and a magnum. When we started creating this song, I was just imagining hearing this walking into a party and seeing someone I'd had my eye on. It's fun!”
The accompanying music video was directed by Bolade Banjo. British rapper Headie One appeared on the clip as a cameo.
Director Bolade Banjo said, “The lyrics and instrumental were very much dedicated to the direction of the video, it was about finding the stylistic language that made sense. Speaking with Jorja about how she wanted to approach this it became apparent; 'Little Things' was within itself.”
- Jorja Smith told Clara Amfo about the song, “What with this song, cuz the beat was playing in the studio, they'd already made it come upstairs. And I was just imagining being at a party or in a club or right and just seeing someone that I've had my eye on and it wasn't really to anyone in particular, I was just creating a story like this was happening. This is what I've been doing. This is what we what are we saying.”
She continued, “Literally you walk in and someone will let you know when the light whatever, whether it's green, red, blue, is like shining on that person there. They've got a little spotlight on them. And that's kind of what I envision.”
She added, “I feel like it's more of how I'm feeling right now. I feel like this song needs to be paid when the sun is shining or outside but when it's warm, I want it well obviously it's gonna be hot in some countries all the time, so that's kind of irrelevant. But I felt like for the UK is good for now.”
