Little Simz shares new track ‘I Love You, I Hate You’
Heavyweight UK rapper Litte Simz today shares the majestic, coruscating centrepiece of the forthcoming, long-awaited album Sometimes I Might Be Introvert, by way of her new single ‘I Love You, I Hate You‘. Haunting and beautiful, raw and emotional, this latest release sees Simz laying herself bare like never before. LISTEN HERE + WATCH HERE.
“Flo asked me, what do you love and what do you hate? I knew the answer immediately,” Simz discloses, “but I was adamant I didn’t want to talk about it.” Written about her absent father, ‘I Love You I Hate You‘ covers such difficult material, kept sacred by Simz like her own Fort Knox, that at first she refused to write about it.
“You a sperm donor or a Dad to me?” she asks, as a boiling guitar riff gives way to a moving choral climax with vibrant strings. “My ego won’t fully allow me to say that I miss you” she confesses. As palpable as her anger – and sorrow – are, it’s in working through her feelings Simz finds some sense of resolution. “A woman who hasn’t confronted all her Daddy issues,” in the last verse she concludes, “I’m not forgiving for you, man, I’m forgiving for me.”
‘I Love You, I Hate You‘ is just the latest missile off an incredible run of tracks previewing Sometimes I Might Be Introvert bySimz, including the powerful call to arms ‘Introvert‘, silky soul swoon of ‘Woman‘, and ice-cool hip hop chill of ‘Rollin Stone‘. To say that she is flexing her muscles in new and exciting ways would be a massive understatement, as would the assertion that Little Simz‘s upcoming record is one of the most anticipated albums of the year.
