AJ TRACEY & JORJA SMITH HIT THE LIVE LOUNGE TO PERFORM “LADBROKE GROVE”


AJ TRACEY & JORJA SMITH HIT THE LIVE LOUNGE TO PERFORM “LADBROKE GROVE”

 

AJ Tracey and Jorja Smith recently hit the BBC Live Lounge to perform AJ’s big hit, “Ladbroke Grove”.

On the original version of the track, Conducta uses his authentic production skills to create a lively summer drop – assisted by a smooth sample of Jorja Smith’s vocals – and in the Live Lounge, she joins AJ Tracey to bring the sample to life.

AJ Tracey is a British rapper who broke out in 2015 with the well-received EP’s The Front and Alex Moran. He is known for his association with the Ladbroke Grove-based music crew MTP.

Jorja Smith is an English singer and songwriter whose heartfelt and streetwise R&B has invoked comparisons to the likes of AlunaGeorge, Rihanna, and Amy Winehouse, the latter of whom the Walsall-based artist cites as her biggest influence. Within a three-year span, Smith appeared on the U.K. indie chart with her moody, MOBO-nominated debut single “Blue Lights” (2016), nearly cracked the Top Ten of the U.K. dance chart with “On My Mind” (2017), and after three additional MOBO nominations crossed into the Top 40 with the Stormzy-assisted ballad “Let Me Down” (2018). During this time, Smith also contributed to Drake’s More Life playlist and the Kendrick Lamar-guided soundtrack for Black Panther, audience-expanding releases that intensified anticipation for her own Lost & Found (June 2018). Smith’s album debut, a Top Five U.K. hit, was acknowledged with three Brit Awards nominations and a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.

With AJ’s effortless delivery of bars and Jorja’s soft voice, the performance from the pair is a seamless combination of two different styles.
