Back in September, Jorja Smith blessed the masses with her sophomore album, falling or flying, a soulful offering with 16 songs and assists from Lila Iké and J Hus, the latter of whom provided his talents on “Feelings.” Produced by DAMEDAME*, the track saw the two being honest with themselves about their desires for a certain someone.

“Lookin’ for some reasons, tell me there’s something wrong with it, tell me there’s something inside that I need, you know I’m not gonna stay the night, oh, I just need one reason, I know there’s nothing wrong with this, hard to pretend it’s not what I want, I want you to read my mind…”

The accompanying clip for “Feelings” comes courtesy of Femi Ladi and stars “Top Boy” actress Jasmine Jobson. Together, Jobson and Smith execute a dark plot that’s largely inspired by the classic film Bonnie & Clyde. J Hus does not make an appearance in the visuals.

Smith spoke on the maturation of her music in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. “Maybe I’m more me now, not more me now, but as I’ve gotten older, maybe I’m giving more of me away, if that makes sense,” she said. “But I just love music and love to feel… If I hear something I love, I’m just going to sing that way. So yeah, that’s why you’re getting so many different pockets and things, whatever I fancy.”

She also acknowledged the time difference between falling or flying and her critically acclaimed debut LP. “Although I didn’t make it in the five years [between the two albums], I made it in the last two,” Smith added. “I feel like, yeah, I put Lost & Found out in 2018, and then went on tour for ages, and then there’s lockdown, and then [I] started this album. So I think it was the perfect time.”
