2021 is the year of Little Simz; seven months in and she's given us so much already, yet there's so much more to come. In spring she hit us with a powerful one-two punch with the release of back-to-back singles "Introvert" and "Woman" featuring Cleo Sol, both as compelling as the other and securing Little Simz' return as a force to be reckoned with. Soon followed the news we'd all been waiting for, a fourth upcoming album "Sometimes I Might Be Introvert" and a UK headline tour across autumn to match.
This new record carries the baton of Little Simz' already established greatness, with an award-winning discography behind her that is so well deserved. Unapologetically self-proclaimed in her identity and beliefs, what makes her a stand out artist is her ability to switch from razor-shop, home-hitting bars to emotionally-charged, vulnerable lyricism.
This powerful expressiveness was a much-needed tonic one month into the pandemic, when she released EP 'Drop 6'. With themes of isolation and self-reflection during a time of intense reflection, it's tracks like 'one life, might live' and 'you should call your mum' that articulated the tension and helplessness at the time which the wider nation couldn't put into words; but Simz could. It was so good, we just had to include in our top lockdown albums round-up.
Yet 'Drop 6' wasn't the first of its kind, with predecessor 'Grey Area' igniting the same spark across audiences and critics, lapping up awards along the way. Her third, and most recent album, 'Grey Area' is strong in its convictions, "gloriously self-assured and grounded" (The Guardian), and if you didn't know who Simz was before listening - well you certainly do after.
With her upcoming album 'Sometimes I Might Be Introvert' due for release on 3 September 2021, we cannot wait to fully immerse ourselves into Little Simz' world - especially if her latest singles are anything to go by.
