Jorja Smith drops off her highly anticipated debut album, Lost & Found, on Friday (June 8). The 20-year-old looks to build off the momentum from previously released singles and several high profile collaborations with artists such as Drake, Stormzy, and Kendrick Lamar.
The British singer’s debut effort is free of guest appearances, and her star shines brightest guiding listeners throughout her 12-track journey of heartbreak. Lost & Found includes the Walsall native’s 2016 single, “Blue Lights,” which kicked off her burgeoning solo career. Smith has admitted to penning the song inspired by her two friends while working at Starbucks.
Speaking to Crack Magazine earlier this week, the genre-blending songstress highlighted the importance of discovering her gift and love for music in life. “I never really find myself on the album, and I still feel very lost in this world. But I know that I want to sing and write songs. I definitely know what I want to do. I know the gift I found,” she said.
