Watch Black Coffee Perform With Jorja Smith for the First Time in Ibiza

Black Coffee is living his best life in Ibiza.

South African house DJ Black Coffee is living his best life in Ibiza, where he's a resident DJ at the club Hi Ibiza.


In a clip he shared on Twitter, the DJ can be seen performing to a hyped up crowd. In that same video, Coffee gets to meet UK singer Jorja Smith, who he appeared with on “Get It Together,” a song from Drake’s More Life playlist project released earlier this year.

“You sound amazing on the song,” Coffee tells Smith who responds, “Thank you so much.”
