It's a potent new release...

Jorja Smith taps into her political concerns on new single 'By Any Means'.

The songwriter released the single a few hours ago, and it picks up on the energy of the Black Lives Matter protests.

Warning that she "won't stay silent" Jorja picks her place "side by side in the revolution..."

The rugged production is rooted in hip-hop, a blunt, raw aesthetic that feels in a different realm to her soulful debut.

The lyrics provide Jorja Smith with a platform to address Blackness in this country, stating: "you wanna see us all amount to nothing..."

A statement of solidarity, in addition to being a highly cathartic, personal single, 'By Any Means' is a moving return.
