V Magazine 115 introduces us to Jorja Smith with this intro:

Listening to Jorja Smith’s stunner of a debut album, 2018’s Lost & Found, it’s easy to forget that it’s a work crafted by someone just barely out of their teens. Filled with wry observations about longing, identity, and the politics of race and woman-hood, the album is both astute and beautiful—a soul-infected platter of slinky R&B that sounds like it could have been released during the glory days of British trip-hop, centered around a voice wise beyond its years. So when Smith turns up to talk about it, popping by a sushi restaurant in midtown Manhattan en route to a taping of a late-night talk show, she is the very definition of unassuming. Fresh-faced in shorts and a T-shirt, she is both radiant and almost unrecognizable from the glam femme fatale seen in the videos for breakout singles “Let Me Down” and “Beautiful Little Fools.” Sitting down for a cup of green tea, Smith laughs when I mention that I might have mistaken her for a student on her way to class. “My nan always told me I was an old soul,”she says, “But people forget sometimes that I’ve only just turned 21.”
