NME Festival blog: Watch Jorja Smith play a hitwoman in the video for ‘Let Me Down’


Jorja Smith has shared the video for her Stormzy collaboration, ‘Let Me Down’.

The Walsall singer released the new song last week, and performed the track at the BRITs nominations party on Saturday (January 13).

Directed by Hector Dockrill, who previously worked with Smith on ‘On My Mind’, the video sees the rising star play a hitwoman plotting against a ballet dancer. Watch the video below.

In a press release, Dockrill said: “When I received the brief for this film it was pretty much just one word: Bond. Jorja and I put our heads together and played with the idea of her role being a strong female lead, in an entirely fictional world.

“Creating this setting and developing Jorja’s character in giving her depth, soul and richness was a strong step in the direction of filmmaking I want to take, and the collaborative process with Jorja and everyone around us was definitely something we’re eager to do again ASAP.”

Smith has already been announced as the winner of this year’s BRIT Awards Critics Choice award, and is set to tour the UK in February.

Jorja Smith will play:

Edinburgh, Liquid Rooms (February 6)
Sheffield, Leadmill (7)
Liverpool, Invisible Wind Factory (8)
Cambridge, Junction (12)

London, O2 Shepherds Bush Empire (14, 15)
