Vulnerability. This is the word that summarises the last year! The world was shaken hard about some social issues indeed! Are you invincible? Surely, not! We all have our hidden secrets. Sometimes I Might Be Introvert as British rapper Little Simz claims on her new album, but there is also a time to express ourselves louder. Little Simz’ ‘I Love You, I Hate You’ faces the duality in the soulstress new video.
Let Your Feelings Go!
“What we have in common is our pain/We’re given the keys/To unlock what it takes to fight for what we believe in,” raps Little Simz. How to tell others how you feel? “On this mission, you live and learn/The world will show you no mercy from birth/How do you humanize your hero?” Through mistakes and positive things, we always find a way to our safe place and express ourselves.
In Little Simz’ ‘I Love You, I Hate You’ visuals, we follow the process of a young man through his paintings as well as an elder man who drowns in a lyrical world, trying to find the other side of the table. Is everything all black or white? Let’s get in the middle gray balance because “Everything is a choice and anything can be said.” Without fear, in the likes of Kelis and Doja Cat, the British rapper brights with her creativity!
Introvert Or Extrovert?
Mixing 70s funk to jazz trumpets and solid hip hop bars, Little Simz ‘I Love You, I Hate You’ is that therapy song. Talking about broken families, social issues, living dreams, and mental health struggling, the British poet forgets her introverted personality and manifest her strength and fierceness through her magnificent lyricism. Little Simz, with her collaborator Flo, painted a part of her dark reality. Family should give us love, but sometimes they provide us with some painful moments. The mixed feelings are part of these intricate relationships we had with our close relatives. Sometimes I Might Be Introvert is the art piece therapy we all need. Her experience brings us honest afterthoughts and we can discover our inner self to the comforting sounds. Get the full album, tour details, and more from Little Simz here.
