Jorja Smith collaborates with Burna Boy on new single 'Be Honest'

Following on from the stunning success of her Mercury Prize-nominated debut album 'Lost & Found' last year, Jorja Smith has now returned with her first piece of new material since that release.

The new single 'Be Honest' sees her collaborate with the ever-impressive Burna Boy, was produced by Izy (Koffee ‘Toast’) and Cadenza, who previously worked with Jorja on her 2016 single ‘Where Did I Go?’, and comes accompanied with an Amber Grace Johnson-directed video.

Speaking about the new video, the director said, “For ‘Be Honest’, Jorja wanted to create a film that embodied the spirit of Summer– pure wild fun. We wanted to invite the world in, to experience a different side of Jorja. Free and full of light, and some "Hot Girl Summer" energy. While writing in my AC filled apartment in Brooklyn, I thought about how there’s nothing quite like Summers in the city. You’re caught between concrete high rises, sweating from heat delirium, with our make-shift fire hydrant beaches. Yet despite it all, there’s a contagious air that floods the city, and your imagination becomes infinite.

With that in mind, we imagined a film nostalgic in nature, with your inner child memories running rampant. Jorja takes us on a ride; sunbathing on her Grandma’s sticky plastic couch, midnight break-ins at the neighbourhood pool, running around with real life friends Sandra and Erin, and of course some jet ski drifting through London streets. That feeling like the world is yours, and rules don’t exist. From afar, Jorja always felt like she was/is from a tribe of angels - that voice, the melodies, and timeless beauty. After this collaboration, I feel even more inspired by her energy, artistry and presence.”
