Jorja Smith has shared her new Popcaan aided single 'Come Over'.
It's a blast of sheer energy from the UK singer, who has quietly had an emphatically creative 2020.
Whether that's covering Blue Note classics or sharing her BLM salute 'By Any Means', she's made each drop count.
New single 'Come Over' is a case in point, with its Caribbean flavours coming right from the source - it was recorded in Port Antonio, Jamaica.
It's an upbeat, empowering return, inspired by “that unsure feeling when you’re talking to someone and you can’t tell how much they’re into you and you’re chasing them when – really - it can be straight up and no one should be playing games.”
The neat animated video has set fans talking, and it was steered by director Amber Grace Johnson, who comments:
“When all production froze due to COVID, Jorja reached out to me. Little did she know it’s a lifelong dream of mine to create an anime inspired piece, being a fan of Ghibli, Satoshi Kon, Aeon Flux, Wicked City and other classics. Best part was that production limits in animation are somewhat non-existent (except of course for how much time you have and resources). But in terms of actions, it felt infinite.”
“I wanted an airborne scene, a hover motorbike, and a fight scene of an undefeated Jorja to kill off a fleet of slimy, artificial club fuckboys on a dystopian sun planet using her hair as her weapon. Naturally my script evolved into ideas only my imagination could dream up. We were lucky to have the opportunity to work with Future Power Station, who brought the vision to life and exceeded expectations.”
