Little Simz is one of the UK’s most talented and overlooked MCs, even though she has a handful of mixtapes, EPs, and a full-length album to her name at the age of 21 (with one more supposedly dropping tomorrow). She’s received cosigns from the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Mos Def, but Simz just hasn’t caught on in the way she should.
Hopefully this new song with Canadian jazz outfit BadBadNotGood will help. While they may not gel on paper, “Our Conversations,” released via Red Bull Sound Select proves just how kindred their spirits truly are. Simz fits right in the pocket of BBNG’s flurrying instrumentation to make one of the most alluring songs of the year. Check it out above.
