Earlier this year Jorja Smith was one of a number of artists that contributed music to the Black Panther soundtrack. The Marvel blockbuster album was curated by Kendrick Lamar, who handled the lead single "All The Stars" alongside his TDE label-mate SZA. During a live session on BBC Radio 1 this morning Jorja Smith brought things full circle by recording a stripped-back cover of their song.

"I love this song," Smith told host Clara Amfo. "I love the chorus, how it's quite big and then it goes down. We've done a nice little rendition of it."

Jorja Smith tours North America from November 19.
