Little Simz is one of my favorite artists from the UK. Im a big fan of her last album GREY Area, in particular a record titled Wounds. It's a soulful track featuring Chronixx where she talks about peer pressure and gun violence. Sadly Simz wrote the song after one of her friends was murdered.

Below I've also included the music video for Introvert and a live performance of Woman, two records which will appear on her new album.

“Miss Understood” lays bare a tense relationship with her sister. “How Did You Get Here” sees her reflect on her career from the beginning to the present; and interludes, featuring the voice of The Crown’s Emma Corrin – yes, Simz binged the show over lockdown too – represent the little voice in the back of her mind, asking her whether she just wants her 15 minutes of fame. It’s the most of herself she’s put into a record yet.
