Al op 8-jarige leeftijd krijgt Jorja Smith pianoles waarna ze hobo en klassieke muziek gaat studeren in Aldridge. Op 15-jarige leeftijd wordt ze gespot nadat ze een aantal covers op YouTube had geplaatst. Drie jaar later verhuist ze naar Londen waar ze gaat werken als barista in een koffieshop en in haar vrije tijd verder gaat met het schrijven van muziek.


Blue Lights is begin 2016 haar debuutsingle. Als Drake daarna haar volgende single, Where Did I Go, de hemel inprijst komt alles voor Smith in een stroomversnelling. Ze mag mee met Drake op zijn Boy Meets Worud-tour en brengt op de Internationale Dag Voor De Vrouw in 2017 de single Beautiful Little Fools Uit. Dat jaar is ze ook mee op tournee tijdens de 24K Magic-tour van Bruno Mars.


Sindsdien werkt ze samen met acts als Stormzy en Kendrick Lamar. In augustus van 2019 maakt ze, samen met Burna Boy, de track Be Honest.


Songtekst

I know you want me
Every day, not only when you're lonely, yeah
You see, you think you know me
But you don't even know nothing about me, yeah
You see my thick thighs
Lost when you look into my brown eyes
See, my little waist can make you switch sides
You never know the devil in the disguise
So why don't you stand up, baby, and

Tell me, tell me, tell me
Do you want me on top
So let me show you, show you, show you
I don't need to back it up
Don't wanna hold ya, mold ya, scold ya
Split you in half with my heart
I just wanna love on you, trust in you, honour you
Please do the same on your part

Be honest (Be honest)
You want this (You want this)
But I can be heartless
Regardless of my conscience

Be honest (Be honest)
You want this (You want this)
But I can be heartless
Regardless of my conscience

Take time
You no say I'm wrong whenever I see bad vibes
Before you come my way, make sure you think twice
Look into my eyes, but I can never see us
I can point a gun, but you know I could never lie, yeah
Come through
I can show you somethin' you can run to
When I finish, you'll be feelin' brand new
Will never be somebody you can run through

And I can put that on my life
One time, no cap
Big vibes, slow down
Catch feels, get high
If you make your bed, then you can lie
Just please don't waste my time

Be honest (Be honest)
You want this (You want this)
But I can be heartless
Regardless of my conscience

Be honest (Be honest)
You want this (You want this)
But I can be heartless
Regardless of my conscience (Oluwa Burna ti de)

People, they talk, them a gistin'
'bout the way your body twistin'
Make me lose control inna dis ting, boi
And it's all because I'm thinking of us
Don't go throw me under di bus
Under a spell, I'm under your love
I don't know why nobody warn me
Listen, my baby, no dey do me bad
Put your heart inside my goody bag
If I do you bad
I beg you, baby, no do me bad
Give me one time, one try
Be mine, this time
Take time, same time
Make we no dey waste time
Girl, I never lie
You already know I'll ...

Be honest (Be honest, ooh yeah)
You want this (You want this)
But I can be heartless
Regardless of my conscience (Ooh yeah)

Be honest (Be honest)
You want this (You want this)
But I can be heartless
Regardless of my conscience

Be honest (Be honest)
You want this (You want this)
But I can be heartless
Regardless of my conscience

Be honest (Be honest)
You want this (You want this)
But I can be heartless
Regardless of my conscience
