Jorja Smith Covers Kendrick Lamar and SZA's 'All The Stars' For BBC Radio 1: Listen
Earlier this year, Kendrick Lamar nabbed Jorja Smith for a guest slot on TDE's blockbuster effort Black Panther: The Album. On Sunday (Nov. 5), Smith returned the favor and paid homage to Lamar by covering "All The Stars" during her appearance at BBC Radio 1.
Smith's stripped-down version finds her taking a slower approach to the anthemic record. She even takes on Lamar's raps and coats his lyrical verses with her feathery vocals.
"I love this song," Smith told host Clara Amfo. "I love the chorus, how it's quite big and then it goes down. We've done a nice little rendition of it."
Smith also performed her song "The One" for the show (below).
After releasing her debut album Lost & Found in June, Smith is set to embark on another North American tour this month. Set to kick off in Seattle Nov. 19, Smith will touchdown in a bevy of cities including Houston, Atlanta and New York before concluding her trek in Toronto on Dec. 19.
