"Jorja is starting 2018 strong with a new song called "Let Me Down," featuring fellow British star, rapper Stormzy. It's slow paced and emotional, and Jorja explains that it's "about meaning very little to someone; but being okay with that, even though it hurts." - PIGEONS & PLANES
"Let Me Down" was inspired by Smith's dream of writing a James Bond theme song, and it does carry in it the melancholy pop spectre of Adele's "Skyfall" or Sam Smith's "Writing's on the Wall." With its barrelling piano chords, soaring notes, and soul-crushing hook, she trades in the energy of her dance cuts for the grandiosity of outsized, pop-appeasing soul." - PITCHFORK
"On "Let Me Down," Smith floats over the somber keys with surgical precision." - BILLBOARD
"Jorja Smith is the ultimate Bond girl in "Let Me Down" - MTV
"The moving number is ultimately filled with unmistaken emotion, as Smith's soaring vocals are complemented to perfection by Stormzy's poignant verse." - HIGH SNOBIETY
"Jorja Smith makes even the saddest of songs sound pretty." - NOISEY
