It’s said that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Whether we’re talking physical appeal or something more visceral, what is attractive to one might be downright repulsive to another. For her latest single “Little Things,” British songstress Jorja Smith tells a tale of being inexplicably drawn to someone.
Over a throbbing groove reminiscent of ’90s UK garage, Jorja is ready to risk it all. From just a glimmer in her crush’s eyes, she lays all of her intentions on the line. “It’s the little things that get me high / Won’t you come with me and spend the night? / Just a little thing for you and I / And if it’s meant to be, then that’s alright,” she sings on the enticing chorus.
The Bolade Banjo-directed visual captures all the vibrant, seductive energy of the track. Set at a rousing house party, we watch as two strangers lock eyes before they both go in for the kill. The fiery yet familiar love story is sprinkled with performance shots of Jorja cold rockin’ the party and short, documentary-style interviews of various people sharing everything from the little things that turn them on to their respective love languages.
It all makes for a playful capture that matches the entrancing spirit of the track. It seems this was precisely the goal, as via press release Jorja says, “When we started creating this song, I was just imagining hearing this walking into a party and seeing someone I’d had my eye on. It’s fun!”
Get the party started right now when you listen to Jorja Smith’s “Little Things” and watch its accompanying visual below. This is her second single of the year following the release of “Try Me” last month, which leads us to believe that her next project is fast approaching and might even be here to set it off this summer. While we speculate, add the track to your party time playlist from your preferred digital music platform.
