Little Simz- “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert” (Album Review)

Little Simz- “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert” (Album Review)

Focusing on the defining moments that play a pivotal role in the fully-fledged formation of her persona, Little Simz’s fourth studio, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert, is a masterful reflection powered by self-analyzation and female empowerment. Through 19 tracks and a justified 65 minutes of run time, the British MC narrates listeners through a series of pivotal life events, ranging from her father walking out on her family to experiencing early encounters with racism. Using these stories to not just show off the array of predominantly negative emotions they bestowed on Simz but to also depict the 27-year-olds core values and explain why she’s the way she is, the LPs storytelling and lyrical aspects offer decade’s worth of potent information. Conveying these ideas over a bliss and organic soundscape that encompasses everything from jazz, instrumentals to soul samples, and all the way to climatic crescendos, and Simz proves herself to be just as creative with her sound as she is with her writing. Between its beautiful sound, thoughtful writing, and one-of-a-kind atmosphere, this isn’t just Little Simz’s magnum opus but also a surefire album of the year candidate.
