“All of This” is Smith’s first new release since collaborating with Jaykae on “1000 Nights” last month, and features production from GuiltyBeatz (Beyoncé, Headie One, Ms Banks).

The song is inspired by amapiano, a style of house music that emerged from South Africa in 2012.

Smith says of the track, “I met [Guilty] when I went over to Port Antonio in Jamaica for a writing camp in 2019. He’s so wonderful to work with and when we initially started the song, it was more a fall to the floor type beat. He’s shared Amapiano playlists with me before and then during the first lockdown in 2020, he sent me a version of the song like it is now. We then finished writing the song remotely, exchanging messages over WhatsApp with his girlfriend Abby who is also a writer.”

She adds, “It’s all about someone who doesn’t deserve you and thinking wow, you really had all of me once, ew.”

As well as collaborating with Jaykae this year, Smith has worked with Wesley Joseph and Sonder, and released her Be Right Back project.
