Jorja Smith playing MHOW before touring with Bruno Mars
British soul singer Jorja Smith debuted with the Project II EP last year, and her career got a huge boost this year when Drake prominently featured her on More Life. She released three more singles this year, "Beautiful Little Fools," "Teenage Fantasy," and "On My Mind" (a collaboration with Preditah), and she recently premiered the new song "Fine Line" on season two of Insecure. You can hear all four of those below.
Jorja recently played Brooklyn's Afropunk and Philly's Made In America, and she has more dates coming up. She'll open the October and November run of Bruno Mars' tour, including the NYC-area dates on October 4 at Barclays Center and October 5 at Nassau Coliseum (tickets).
Right before Jorja begins her tour with Bruno, she plays a headlining show in Brooklyn on October 2 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale today (9/13) at noon.
As for Bruno Mars, he has a television special recorded live at the Apollo Theater coming to CBS in November called Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo. His tour also includes NYC-area stops in September at MSG and Prudential Center, which are with Dua Lipa, who just announced a Hammerstein Ballroom show.
