Song of the Day – Beautiful Little Fools

Let me introduce you to the wonderful Jorja Smith – a singer-songwriter from the West Midlands. Having won the Brits Critics’ Choice Award earlier this year, she has exploded into the public eye with an exquisitely soulful repertoire to hand. “Beautiful Little Fools” was inspired by The Great Gatsby and written when she was only sixteen years old – specifically when Daisy hopes for her daughter to be a beautiful little fool. With a distinctly unapologetic message, this song talks out against societal constructs and sexist power structures in place.
