“Come Over” is the long-awaited dancehall-infused song from Smith, discussing the confusion that can happen between two lovers – the mixed messages and signals, feeling as if you are not being given the same respect back. On the 1st May 2020, Smith played a portion of the track in an Instagram live, stating that it would be her next single. She revealed that she chose to hold back on the release due the UK’s national lockdown at the time: “This is why I’m not putting it out right now, because I’m not trying to give any wrong messages. No, do not come and visit your friends!”
