ORIGINAL STORY (July 30, 2020): British singer-songwriter Jorja Smith has released a new single, “By Any Means,” a bittersweet ballad reflecting on the Black Lives Matter movement. In a statement, Smith explained that the inspiration for the song “came from going to the Black Lives Matter protest and leaving thinking, what can I do to keep this conversation going? It’s not just a post on social media, it’s life.”

“By Any Means” is the lead track off Roc Nation’s upcoming project, Reprise, a collection of songs by multiple artists that address social justice. A portion of the proceeds from the compilation will be donated to organizations that support victims of police brutality, hate crimes and other civil rights violations.
