At first ear, you may think this song is Adele's newest release. The intro starts off with melancholy piano chords and makes you think, "Yeah, this just may be my next break up anthem." And perhaps it is. Once the drums kick in, you may make the assumption that it might even be Kaytranada. But no. Then the feminine, raspy, smooth speaking vocals leak in, and you know it just must be a hybrid of three of your favorite artists. The miracle offspring of AlunaGeorge, Willow Smith & Sinead Harnett? Close. This British breakthrough artist is basically a combination of all of the above. The U.K. singer, Jorja Smith, has released two consistent bangers within 4 months. The 18 year old took the time to carefully curate her next release, and has now graced us with "Where Did I Go?"

Throughout "Where Did I Go?" Jorja uses a raw, power to the pussy approach by saying goodbye to her lover.
"Maybe this fate was overdue, baby it's late and I'm confused, you showed me love that wasn't real, can't teach yourself to be sincere"
I'm planning on sending this track to a cheating ex from ten years ago, just to show him what I would've said a decade ago had this song been released.
