Little Simz has dropped “Woman,” the second single from her upcoming album, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert.
Over shuffling drums and soulful bass, the British MC pays tribute to women of all backgrounds. “Yoruba girl tougher than imperial leather / He was gettin’ bitter while she was gettin’ better,” she proudly raps.
The track also features Cleo Sol on vocals, who delivers a refrain that encapsulates the track’s celebration of female strength. “I love how you go from zero to one hundred / And leave the dust behind, you’ve got this / All action, no talk,” she sings.
In a first for the rapper, Simz directed the extravagant accompanying music video. It depicts Simz in an opulent mansion, flanked by women in its various settings: posing under glistening chandeliers, toasting in majestic ballrooms, and dancing on grand stairways.
“I love it when I see women doing their thing and looking flawless; I’m here for that!” Simz said about the track in a press release. “It’s empowering, it’s inspiring; I wanted to say thank you and I wanted to celebrate them.”
The song is the second single from her upcoming full-length release due on September 3, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert. This was preceded by the fiery political anthem “Introvert,” which Simz dropped in late April.
Cleo Sol also previously featured on Simz’s previous Grey Area track, “Selfish.”
