Teenage Fantasy

Album: Lost & Found (2016)
  • Jorja Smith wrote this at the age of 16 when she was babysitting. She told BBC Radio 6's Mary Ann Hobbs that she started humming a tune then came up with some lyrics "about some boy I liked that didn't like me back." You can hear some of Jorja's original humming on the recording that appears on Lost & Found.
