In collaboration with Birmingham producer Preditah, the latest tune from Jorja Smith captures the raw 2-step energy of U.K. pirate radio, and she leans fully into that vibe with the video (premiering above). "On My Mind" is a UKG kiss-off, and its video appropriately features tower blocks, spliffs, and the mockumentary-famous garage crew Kurupt FM.
"Even though it wasn't shot in Walsall, the video gave me a very nostalgic feel of being at home," Jorja told The FADER in an email. "It reminded me of times spent chilling in my friend's flat. We all had such a fun day shooting, the video reflects the mood of the song. Very alive."
"Me and Jorja pretty much have the same musical tastes," Preditah added. "The track is uptempo and bubbly which is what I specialize in, and it also has soul and meaning which is what Jorja specializes in."
