Jorja Smith has returned with a new break-up single called “All Of This.”
The DJ Guilty Beatz-produced tune is upbeat and danceable, contrasting the bitter lyrics. Throughout the tune, Jorja Smith spits lines about a breakup, singing: “I see how you changed me, I know what you said./ It don’t make me hate you/ I wish that it did.” Alongside the track, Smith shared a video that sees her in various settings beneath film-like effects.
“I met [Guilty] when I went over to Port Antonio in Jamaica for a writing camp in 2019,” Smith says. “He’s so wonderful to work with and when we initially started the song, it was more a fall to the floor type beat. He’s shared Amapiano playlists with me before and then during the first lockdown in 2020, he sent me a version of the song like it is now. It’s all about someone who doesn’t deserve you and thinking wow, you really had all of my once, ew.”

About Be Right Back:
“All Of This” marks the first new release since her recent EP, Be Right Back. The project sees Jorja Smith growing from the velvety, neo-soul sounds of her debut album, Lost & Found. Smith has developed into a nuanced, explorative artist, refining her sound with lush instrumentals and finessed lyrics. Honing in on her sugary vocals, Smith weaves in and out of dance-worthy hooks and emotive, vulnerable subject matter.
Opening with the catchy, drum-laden “Addicted,” Smith sets the tone of the collection with a sort of new-found allure. From the previously released “Gone” to the jazz-driven sounds of “Burn,” Be Right Back is a cohesive, yet diverse collection of genre-bending tracks.
“It’s called be right back because it’s just something I want my fans to have right now, this isn’t an album and these songs wouldn’t have made it,” Smith explained upon the project’s announcement. “If I needed to make these songs, then someone needs to hear them too.”
