New Music: Jorja Smith feat. Stormzy - 'Let Me Down'

  /  01.11.2018

Jorja Smith teams up with fellow U.K. star Stormzy on “Let Me Down,” a disappointment anthem about an ill-fated romance off her upcoming debut album.

The piano-laden track, produced by Paul Epworth and Ed Thomas, allows Jorja’s soul-stirring vocals to shine brilliantly. “Sometimes, I wouldn’t mind if I was less important,” she sings. “But I’ve got you to let me down.”

Stormzy adds a rap verse to the ballad from a different perspective. “Time is golden, time is thin,” he rhymes. “But time is rare, so we squanderin’ that / I feel your pain when I hear your voice / So fix your tone, man, you’re stronger than that.”

“‘Let Me Down’ is about meaning very little to someone but being okay with that even though it hurts,” said Smith, before explaining that it reminds her of a James Bond theme song. “A dream of mine is to write a Bond theme tune. When I am writing music I sometimes envision a video playing along side. ‘Let Me Down’ sounded quite Bondy and when I was listening to it I imagined it being played in a Bond film but during a scene when James Bond has gone down into an underground, dimly lit, secret bar and he approaches the Bond girl who is sitting at the bar looking very guilty because she’s done something bad and let him down.”
