In honor of the holiday season, Little Simz is releasing her newest release, NO THANK YOU, a collection of ten songs that arrives just a week after the rapper made a surprise announcement about her forthcoming album. Production on the album is handled by Inflo, with three of the tracks featuring Cleo Sol, a previous collaborator.
As the album opens with the track “Angel,” the London emcee Little Simz rages against a machine that does not care about her well-being; she proclaims:
NO THANK YOU was released just over a year after the release of Sometimes I Might Be an Introvert. This 19-track release made its debut on the UK Albums chart back in October as well as reaching the No. 4 positions on the album chart. It later won the highly coveted Mercury Prize for Best Album.
Outside of what he has done in the music industry, Little Simz has continued to make waves in the acting world as well. She served as a guest star in 2021’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage and took on a much more significant role in Netflix’s series Top Boy, in which she played Shelley in a much larger role. Harper’s Bazaar recently interviewed the critically acclaimed actress, who opened up about the importance of ‘Molly’ as she discussed it in their interview about the show’s upcoming final season, which will take place in the spring:
“To be a part of a cast that has contributed so much to the TV and film worlds is something that is unheard of in our lifetime, and I am honored to be a part of something that is truly extraordinary. Also, what it stands for, bringing to light the stories of people that often are not told and heard; I think that’s really meaningful.”
