As a follow-up to her Mercury Prize-winning fourth album, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert from 2021, British rapper Little Simz has just announced the release of her new mixtape, NO THANK YOU.
Simz, also known as Simbi Ajikawo, took to social media to post the news which featured a short clip of typed-out aphorisms. The text reads, “Emotion is energy in motion/Honour your truth and feelings/Eradicate fear/Boundaries are important.” Each is written on separate lines before the album’s title was officially revealed.
Little Simz is collaborating with multiple award-winning producers and longtime friend Inflo (SAULT) for her fifth album. Simz received the Mercury Prize over Self Esteem and Wet Leg this October, continuing her 2022 winning streak. At the ceremony, she performed a live rendition of her hit song “How Did You Get Here.” She also won with Knucks for MOBO Awards’ Album Of The Year for her Sometimes I Might Be Introvert mixtape.
