After dropping her Time Travel EP earlier this year, Los Angeles R&B singer-songwriter Jasmine Jordan follows up with the optimistic single "Smile."
On the jazzy song, Jasmine reminds us to remain positive in the face of hard times and adversity. “Keep your head up, don’t let up / Keep movin’, don’t give up on you,” she sings on the chorus. Jordan’s sweet vocal tone and positive message only get better with a satisfying crescendo during the bridge, which pops even more with the lush, live instrumentation.
And naturally the Andric Booker-directed video is full of bright, sunny, positive energy as well. “‘Smile’ is a song about self-love and a word of encouragement for anyone having a difficult time, or what I call a down season, in life,” Jordan told PopMatters. “You will make it through and there will always be a new reason to smile if you just hold on. This video captures that very sentiment and uplifting energy.”
Jordan is prepping four west coast dates for her “Smile” Show. Be energized by Jasmine’s positivity and check out the dates below:
