Watch Jorja Smith cover “Killing Me Softly”

The British artist puts her spin on the Roberta Flack/ Fugees classic.

February 08, 2019

Jorja Smith has shared a live cover of Roberta Flack's "Killing Me Softly," a song made even more famous by The Fugees in 1996. U.K. singer Smith's take is true to the original, adding a jazzy instrumental from her live band. Smith gets to riff over the top of the upbeat version, showcasing the vocals which made her 2018 album Lost & Found such a smooth listen and earned her a Best New Artist nomination at this weekend's Grammys. Check out the cover above, via Like A Version.
