Rashid Babiker, who's first video was the excellent promo for Jorja Smith's On Your Own, now directs Jorja with Maverick Sabre. They are two strangers who have an everyday, but quietly powerful encounter.

Maverick plays the cab driver who picks up Jorja as his fare. The song Slow Down, and their performances, plus the graphic touches that Babiker provides allows you to take in the world and feel the atmosphere gradually building between the pair.

It ends, in an intriguing way, with a bond seeming to appear between them - and then it's gone, probably forever. A resonant little cinematic episode, and a fine showcase for both artists.
