After beginning 2018 with the release of her headline-dominating, Stormzy-assisted “Let Me Down” single, fast-rising U.K. star Jorja Smith serves up the track’s official video.

Directed by previous visual collaborator Hector Dockrill, the vignette for Jorja Smith and Stormzy’s “Let Me Down” revolves around the intense connection between one particular male ballet dancer and Jorja, who is tasked with carrying out an organized assassination. As the scenario unfolds, Jorja Smith ends up taking things down a different direction, resulting in some twists to the original narrative. Today’s clip was filmed in Kiev, and also features an appearance from Stormzy towards the end.

You can view the video for Jorja Smith and Stormzy’s “Let Me Down” above. For more, check out Jorja Smith’s December 2017 cover of Frank Ocean’s “Lost.”
