Come Over

by Syd Briscoe

Jorja Smith: “Come Over (ft. Popcaan)” - 3 mins 59s

This promo for Jorja Smith's latest single 'Come Over' boasts sci-fi, Afrofuturistic vibes, which will leave viewers begging for a full-length animated series. Directed by Amber Grace Johnson, the film focuses on female empowerment and delves into Smith's frustration at being messed around by potential suitors.

Sleek animation and a considered colour palette enhance the track's dancehall sound, as Smith rides a hoverbike through dark city streets and becomes an avenging angel on the club scene. With angular anime nods and fluid action shots, this is guaranteed to have aesthetically-minded viewers going back for a second and third watch to appreciate all the lovely details.
