“Addicted” is one of the best songs of the year. The opening track and lead single from Jorja Smith’s new Be Right Back EP was extremely well chosen because it definitely grabbed my attention. The song harnesses Smith’s considerable talents as a proven master of British soul and refracts them back into the world at surprising angles. Against a backdrop of moody, Radiohead-esque rock — wispy keyboards, a stuttering snare drum, smoky guitars that seem to flicker in and out of existence — Smith shows off her poise and finesse in the face of heartbreak. Her voice darts and flutters across the rhythm with a casual grace, lightly pogo-ing into stretched out syllables that quiver with fine-tuned precision. “The hardest thing/ You are not addicted to me,” she sings. “I’m the only thing you should need.” She sounds like if Adele was more inclined to artfully sigh than to belt out glory notes.

The stylish UK pop-R&B singer Jorja Smith is back today with her first new single of 2021. It’s a good one. “Addicted” is dark, pensive, and propulsive, building from shadowy reflections to a hard-knocking organic beat. The live drums plus a generous serving of guitar and Smith’s subtly emotive performance help the song to sound a bit like Radiohead backing up Adele. And how about this chorus: “The hardest thing, you are not addicted to me/ I’m the only thing that you need/ You should be addicted to me/ The hardest thing, I am too selfless to leave/ You’re the only thing that I need/ You should be addicted to me.”
