Little Simz shares stunning new video for their anthemic rally cry from ‘Introvert’ single
Little Simz revealed the first single “Introverted” from his next album Sometimes I could be introverted in the form of a sprawling and exciting video directed by Salomon Ligthelm of PRETTYBIRD. Hymn, provocative rallying cry and raw evocation of what it means to be a black woman living in the crosshairs of society, “Introvert” is a masterclass of eviscerated lyricisms which recount in unequivocal terms the urgency of the modern experience of women. black today. From the majestic orchestral themes that open the song, from which Little Simz’s tenacious call for resistance develops through his biting bars, to the film’s awe-inspiring dance routine that is interspersed with stunning visuals and homemade video footage; everything about “Introvert” seems to be the herald of a great maritime change.
“Introvert” unfolds not only as Simz’s manifesto of her own identity, but also as a teachable moment, a visceral experiential essay that reconciles all the multitudes within her by rejecting what would label her and her. would trap. Instead, Simz opts for the unity among black women that is essential to her own continuing struggle – and the victory inherent in it. It’s hard not to be exceptionally excited for the rest of Simz’s album, especially with the dynamism and exciting methods with which the artist blends genres into patchwork pieces that are inevitably honest and exhilaratingly powerful. .
