With a seductive yet elusive voice, songstress Jorja Smith has risen to the top over the last few months with infectiously heart-wrenching songs, crafting tracks of love, heartache and hope that speak to all of us. While her songs already builds upon our imagined and/or lived experiences, Jorja has released beautiful visuals for "On Your Own" to further weave a more exquisite and visceral story.
"On Your Own" is a stunningly relatable song about finally finding the strength to leave – to be done with the relationship, and to leave the other person on their own. A song about building your own confidence up again, it seems suitable that the video curates a live photo book detailing her tales of love – her journey in finding her identity and establishing confidence through a series of cinematic photo spreads. The innovative Rashid Babiker-directed visuals gently warms us with a collage of Jorja's successes. With her own photo gracing the cover of the hard bound book, the retro, scrapbook-esque feel allows for a more unique and personal touch, adding layers of nostalgia and warmth, almost as though we were in the video celebrating with her.
