HERITAGE: A Young Jorja Smith And School Friend Uromi Cover Labrinth And Tinie Tempah’s “Earthquake” (2012) – TRENCH

A few years ago, a video circulated of a young Jorja Smith sat outside school with her friend Uromi performing a cover of Katy B’s “On A Mission”.

As it turns out, the pair recorded a few of these covers and they’re all gold. Here they are, this time covering Labrinth and Tinie Tempah’s “Earthquake”. With Jorja on lead vocals and Uromi on guitar and backing vocals, they strip the club-leaning original back to an emotionally charged acoustic version.

This cover is rumoured to have helped launch the singer’s career as it was one of the early videos record producer Guy Moot came across before scouting her.
