MTV PUSH: Jorja Smith

R&B-pop sensation Jorja Smith is our MTV Push act this month!

Jorja Smith’s playfully infectious pop spirit intertwines with her youthful charisma, idiosyncratic storytelling, and informed opinions – it’s these attributes that have set her apart from her peers and seen her become one of the most-loved female-breakthrough stars of recent years.

Bursting onto the scene in 2016 with her critically acclaimed debut single Blue Lights, Jorja was subsequently tipped for success by a plethora of publications including The Times, The Fader, i-D Magazine, The Guardian, and many more.

In 2017, Jorja, went on to support mega-star Bruno Mars on the US-leg of his world tour, collaborated with global lyricist Drake (‘More Life’) and also co-wrote ‘I Am’ – her solo single on the #1 Black Panther soundtrack – with the man himself, Kendrick Lamar.

2018 has been another big year for the soulful singer, kicking off the year as BRITs Critics’ Choice winner, she then went on to release her debut album in 2018, ‘Lost & Found’ spans a number of personal, and observational yet relatable topics that only Jorja Smith could unite so compellingly.

The album, which Jorja has written across the past 3 years, from the age of 17 to 20, includes previously released singles “Blue Lights’, ‘Teenage Fantasy’ and ‘Where Did I Go?’

We don’t doubt that she’s set to achieve even bigger successes in the years to come and that’s why we’re happy to announce her as our Push artist for September.
