Jorja Smith is the new big confirmation in the 14th edition of NOS Alive’20. The artist who made history with one of the most applauded concerts at the Festival last year, confirms her presence on July 8 on the NOS stage, joining the already confirmed Kendrick Lamar and Black Pumas for this extra date. It was 2016 when “Blue Lights” became his official entry into the world of music.
It was thanks to his unique voice that the single was nominated at the MOBO Awards in the category of “Best Song”; then it catapulted to streaming platforms, such as SoundCloud or Spotify, conquering thousands of fans. Jorja’s strength and charisma leave no doubt about her grandeur on stage, however, it was her participation in Drake’s “More Life” compilation that elevated her to the status of a star she is today. “Let Me Down”, released in 2018 with the participation of Stormzy, is another of the successes that helped the artist’s recognition, followed by the participation in Kendrick Lamar’s album on the track “I Am” that was part of the film’s soundtrack. Black Panther.
“On My Mind”, “Teenage Fantasy” and “Beautiful Little Fools”, are other of his great successes, all themes that reflect an active social concern and that reaffirm his role as a strong defender of female power. Almost two years after the release of Lost and Found, Jorja continues to promote the album and dominate stages and audiences wherever he goes. It is not by chance that she is considered by critics as the successor to Lauryn Hill, with a voice of her own.
Directly from the United Kingdom for the first day of NOS Alive 2020, Jorja Smith is preparing to continue to surprise and make the entire Algés Maritime Promenade sing.
