Little Simz – “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert”

Record Label: Age 101

Release Date: September 3, 2021

After the sparse hammer-on-anvil thrills of last year’s Drop 6 EP, the heavy-handed Bond-theme production here feels like a bit of backpedal. Bold and brassy, Introvert is a long mixed bag. The album avoids deep fails through the grit and fluidity of Simz’ freestyling, and at times her audacity alone carries things forward. You can’t fault her hunger and ambition. Her best work has at times fallen short on the charts. When Simz rises above the awkward settings and everything connects (“Point and Kill”, “Rollin’ Stone”, ”Fear No Man”), she flashes her deserving brilliance. – Jeff McCord
