‘Sometimes I Might Be Introvert’ is the fourth studio album by Little Simz. The North London artist, also known as Simbiatu Ajikawo, is recognised as one of the most original and gifted in hip hop. Her latest record follow's last year's 'Drop 6' EP, and 'GREY AREA' from 2019, which was a vivid coming of age record, describing the doubts and discoveries of youth.
"Introvert" is essentially me finding power within my introversion,” Simz told i-D in an interview ahead of the release. "Turning inwards and finding peace within myself amongst all the chaos that’s happening in the world; just trying to centre myself, ground myself, and ask myself real and honest questions in order to grow.”
The single 'I Love You, I Hate You' is at the heart of the album. Simz confronts complicated relationships with family, and their complex blend of emotional extremes. 'Woman', featuring Cleo Sol, is a “a soulful love letter to women around the world”, and 'Rollin Stone' features charged club rhythms overlaid with Simz' commanding flow. Woven amongst the songs are five interludes, affirming spoken word messages accompanied by orchestral themes.
The entire album is a generous display of talent and insight, supported by production from long-time friend and collaborator Inflo.
