Release Date: 16th June
Tail end of 2022 and Little Simz behaving like an artist unbound by traditional distribution timetables, marketing plans and fishing for End of the Year nods. Operating now as an artist doing things on their terms, revealing the process, laying their ambitions bare and most importantly still with the tunes that has put Simbi well and truly atop the UK hip hop ladder.
If 2021’s “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert” catapulted Simz into the big leagues, crashing into the top 5 of the albums charts, collecting Mercury Music Prize, Mobo, Ivor Novello and Brit Award wins and earning her the biggest live audiences yet in the UK and Europe yet, “NO THANK YOU” is yet another delicious left field turn for 29-year old Simbiatu Ajikawo. Sleek, succinct and utterly propulsive, it’s Simz’ defiantly punk rock, two fingered salute to conformity and fame, and all the expectations and restrictions that come with. Recorded with her regular collaborator Inflo, this is Simz at her most free, daring and spontaneous. In her own words: 'emotion is energy in motion. honour your truth and feelings. eradicate fear. boundaries are important.’
