This is the most recent video she’s put out and I just love it. We’ve all at one point dreamed of having a teenage fantasy, falling in love and hoping to spend the rest of your life with them. Yet we’re so young, this should be the last thing on our minds. Focus on progressing, improving yourself and loving yourself. Focus on getting where you want to go first and achieving your goals. Jorja’s right:
“There’s no need to rush
Take your time
Life’s a big old ride
Sit back and enjoy the vibe”
I love love love this song. It’s so simple yet so meaningful. I love how she plays different characters in the video too. The melody, the lyrics everything. We are so much more than “beautiful little fools”. We lose sight of ourselves when we create a false perception of ourselves. We are not “born to be adored” but born to make something of ourselves and do what we love, breaking the boundaries of what women are expected to do. Jorja was actually inspired by the book The Great Gatsby, for anyone who’s read it before you may begin to realise the phrase “beautiful little fool” was made by Daisy, when she believes that “that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool” as she expresses her hopes of a her child to be a fool.
“Didn’t your mother ever tell you love yourself?
Well if your mother was Zelda or Daisy, I guess not
Why can’t you be a beautiful little girl
Instead of being a beautiful little fool?
I guess we’re all just beautiful little girls
Playing a game of being fooled, yeah”
Jorja Smith ladies and gentleman. She’s amazing. I love her voice and her lyrics. Her voice is soulful and soothing. It’s unique and gives her a distinct sound, I can’t think of anyone that sounds like her which is a good thing. I admire how her words are really heartfelt and relatable.
I love the concept of her videos too, she’s absolutely gorgeous. I hope to see her live one day.
