Jorja Smith has graced many a stage this year – from concert stages coast-to-coast to NPR’s Tiny Desk to Jimmy Kimmel Live! – with her chill live vibe. Last night the young Brit did it again when she brought her talents to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform “February 3rd.”
Lifted from her debut album Lost & Found, Smith was mesmerizing as she sang the lovelorn lament. Trading in her braids for a high, long, fluffy ponytail that would make Janet Jackson and Beyoncé proud and her usual casual garb for a sexy, form-fitting red dress that would have Johnny Gill singing “My, My, My,” the 21-year-old was a vision of loveliness. Her style may have evolved since the last time we saw her, but her signature sound remained intact as she sang the soulful number backed by her band who were awash in blue and purple lights.
Watch Jorja Smith’s impressive showing on The Tonight Show, and let this performance be the catalyst to get you to buy tickets for her upcoming Lost & Found Tour later this year in case you haven’t already.
