Jorja Smith shares first music of 2019 with new single ‘Be Honest’


Multi-award-winning British singer Jorja Smith, has today unveiled her brand new single, ‘Be Honest’.

The track is her first piece of new music since the release of her Mercury Music Prize nominated debut album ‘Lost & Found’ in Summer 2018.

Highly anticipated, the new single features Burna Boy – a towering presence in both the UK and US music scene largely in part to his 2018 Outside album and hit single ‘Ye’.

Listen to ‘Be Honest’ by Jorja Smith on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.

One of the brightest stars in contemporary African music, Burna Boy and Jorja have also collaborated on his African Child album track ‘Gum Body’.

Produced by Izy (Koffee ‘Toast’) and Cadenza (who previously worked with Jorja on her 2016 single ‘Where Did I Go?’), ‘Be Honest’ is a sonic contrast to Jorja’s calmer, ballad-leaning album tracks.

The Amber Grace Johnson-directed video (who’s previously worked with Rihanna and A$AP Rocky), was filmed in locations across London, including Rye Lane Market and Peckham Liberal Club.

The visual sees Jorja and two of her best friends, Erin and Sandra, battling effortlessly through the hot London summer as Jorja dances and sings along to the infectious single.

The single is up-beat, flirtatious and empowering – showing a new side to the ever-inspiring musician, who is still just 22 years old.
