Rising artist Jorja Smith has been building major buzz since her cameo on Drake's most recent LP More Life. Maybe you've heard the 20-year-old's heavily-accented vocals in her single "I Am" on the universally acclaimed Black Panther soundtrack or saw her as one of the opening acts for Bruno Mars? Now, she's about to make her own major mark, as the British songwriter just announced that she is set to release her debut album Lost & Found on June 8.

Smith's soulful voice is reminiscent of Amy Winehouse's somber and blues-y tone, and has been compared, by many, to the likes of Rihanna and Lauryn Hill. The emerging artist just kicked off her US tour after her debut performance at Coachella and will begin touring the UK in October. Check out the new album cover below.
