Jorja Smith has released a new video for the song “Bussdown” featuring rising South London rapper Shaybo. The video features Smith as a mechanic who cons customers to buy herself beautiful diamonds.
Music video director Fenn O’Meally explained the creative process behind the music video: “As soon as Jorja sent over the track, I knew there had to be a special concept for it. I remember the exact moment I thought about the two of them being mechanics. I’m not sure why — maybe I’ve been mansplained to too many times — but it’s just very epic to see two very beautiful and powerful women completely boss a male-dominated world. I’m so grateful to both Jorja and Shaybo for trusting a crazy concept and making it their own.”
The song is laid back and features a reggaeton feel. Check out the song below:
The song is a part of an 8-track project, Be Right Back. Jorja says of the project – “It’s called Be Right Back because it’s just something I want my fans to have right now, this isn’t an album and these songs wouldn’t have made it. If I needed to make these songs, then someone needed to hear them too.”
