After her latest album Sometimes I Might Be Introvert exploded into a tsunami of accolades, acclaim and global success, Little Simz is firmly on her way to becoming one of the new generation’s most revered rap artists.

Merging a cornucopia of sounds, the album is one of the year’s most musically diverse, sonically consistent and lyrically intuitive releases. Little Simz blurs genres from Afrobeat to neo-soul, introducing industrial backing and huge orchestral pieces to create a masterpiece whose sound shines with a triumphant grandeur throughout. From the boastful to the consciously introspective, Simz’s lyrics narrate themes of womanhood, Black identity and our political climate beautifully.

The album’s success leaves no doubt among critics and fans that Little Simz is only destined for phenomenal things. Garnering success in the United States, it seems like only a matter of time before she establishes herself as a household name across the globe. To catch such a meteoric talent on her ascent to the top is a rare experience and not one any fan should ignore, so as Simz embarks on a UK tour, set to drop in to Newcastle’s O2 Academy on Saturday 27th November, nobody should shy away from her dynamic and majestic live performances.
