While on tour in the US recently, Jorja Smith dropped into the Genius offices to decode one of the standouts of her live show, ‘Goodbyes’.

The track, which you can hear on her debut album Lost & Found, was written in one of her earliest writing sessions when she was 16, and deals with the loss of a friend.

She explains that she wrote the song as a way of helping another friend deal with the grief, and describes the way in which the track has taken on other meanings for her listeners.
