Jorja Smith Releases Artsy New Video For "On My Own"

Watch Jorja Smith in her video for "On My Own."

Jorja Smith takes fans on a trip in her picture book-themed video for "On My Own." The single "On My Own" is pulled from the "Blue Lights" singer's debut album Lost and Found, which received rave reviews and hit No. 3 on the UK charts.

The Rashid Babiker visual depicts a noticeably bored girl who happens upon a bright red Jorja Smith picture book. As the young girl begins to flip through the book, the first page reads "Return On or Before." Badiker, who is credited with directing Smith's "Teenage Fantasy," had a goal to create a video from Jorja's Lost & Found period that is "set a bit further into the future."

The Lost and Found singer's pictures spring to life, telling some sort of story. The stills used to comprise this bound book of photos contain abstract images of a vulnerable Smith. The song and its artwork capture the essence of an artist like Jorja Smith while making a bold statement about impact and artist of Smith's caliber will have on the music industry long after she has retired.

Casanova's "Jail Call" Video Sheds Light On Life In Prison

Brooklyn's Casanova released his Behind these Scars effort today (Oct. 11). The 10-track project opens with a sobering track, "Jail Call," about an inmate serving time in prison.

Directed by Marc Diamond, the video opens with Casanova making a collect call from jail, hoping someone picks up. Throughout the song, Casanova narrates the harsh realities of prison life as the camera follows his struggles of trying to survive in prison.

After serving seven years in prison for robbery, the "So Brooklyn" rapper has been open about his time in jail. He's admitted to stabbing and beating inmates. This sobering video comes at a time when rappers like Jay Z and Meek Mill are taking a stand against prison reform.

Behind these Scars is led by the Kings County anthem "So Brooklyn," which features a fire verse from Fabolous. "So Brooklyn" also spurred the #SoBrooklynChallenge, where MCs like Maino, Pappose, and Memphis Bleek released remixes.
