Album Review – Sometimes I Might Be Introvert

Album Review - Sometimes I Might Be Introvert

Overall, 2021 was a great year for music in general — CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST, Donda, Montero, SOUR, Silk Sonic, etc. were all released, so many of which were amazing projects. One of my favorite LPs this year however comes from London-Born artist Little Simz, releasing her fourth studio album Sometimes I Might Be Introvert. The tracklist begins with the grand intro of Introvert with an almost cinematic opening. This beginning track gives a good example of the rest of the project as well: dazzling arrays of layered and varied instrumentals along with a lyricism craft that rivals some of the greats. Track after track after this leads to a stellar project in general, including interludes that build the sonic environment and the varied storytelling that the album has in store.

From songs like Little Q, Pt. 2 that tell in detail of her childhood and struggles growing up to I Love You, I Hate You about the conflicted emotions relating to Simz ‘father. There are few to no misses on the album in my mind, almost every swing is a hit. Unlike many albums, SIMBI is a project that I can play and leave on simply enjoying each and every song. Each song sounds unique while staying true to the project’s feel and core aesthetics, making a final piece of artwork that rivals artists who have had decades on top of the game.

Overall, this project is one of the best albums of the year. I would rate it a nine out of ten, and I can’t wait for Little Simz to continue to break into the mainstream
