About this deal

If 2021’s “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert” catapulted Simz into the big leagues, crashing into the top 5 of the albums charts, collecting Mercury Music Prize, Mobo, Ivor Novello and Brit Award wins and earning her the biggest live audiences yet in the UK and Europe yet, “NO THANK YOU” is yet another delicious left field turn for 29-year old Simbiatu Ajikawo. We have a regular newsletter with the week’s new releases that goes out every Thursday or Friday too. In the edit page, go to the 'Metadata' tab and add your Juno artist, label or release page for listeners to purchase your release / releases.

On the minimalist album opener, "Angel", Simz analyses her rise to stardom with a " Prince-style pun" on master ownership. If 2021’s “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert” catapulted Simz into the big leagues, crashing into the top 5 of the albums charts, collecting Mercury Music Prize, Mobo, Ivor Novello and Brit Award wins and earning her the biggest live audiences yet in the UK and Europe yet, NO THANK YOU is yet another delicious left field turn for 29-year old Simbiatu Ajikawo. In 2019, she described the writing process for GREY Area as like attending therapy—but without going “to sit on someone else’s sofa and dish out my issues to a stranger so they could charge me by the minute. Here, Harry is the opener’s titular angel “listening from heaven on repeat” as Simz discovers clarity, along with the power of saying “no.

She smiled and said “Thank you” when she was handed the prize for Best New Artist at February’s BRIT Awards, despite being 12 years and four studio albums into a well-documented career. No Thank You received widespread critical acclaim from music critics, who complimented Inflo's smooth production and Simz's lyrical depth. Chances are you've already heard it, but if not, we can confirm that it's a genuinely brilliant set that more than lives up to the dizzy heights of its Mercury Prize-winning predecessor, 2021's Sometimes I Might Be Introvert. In 2021, Little Simz released her previous studio album Sometimes I Might Be Introvert, which became her first album to place in the top-ten of the UK Album Chart (at number four), and was ranked one of the best music releases of 2021 by critics. NPR named "Gorilla" the 100th best song of 2022, saying how Simz "displays command of her punchy rhymes with a cadence so casual it feels as if she could deliver them in her sleep.

The songs on No Thank You have long instrumental codas that are highlighted by Inflo's "lushly" and "inventive" arrangements filled with choral vocals and "swelling" strings.

Although it came out digitally at the end of last year, the physical release was this year - and that’s what we’re here to celebrate as we couldn’t let her 4th full-length offering go without proper acknowledgement. UK rapper/singer Little Simz follows up her 2021 Mercury Prize winning Sometimes I Might Be Introvert LP with her most detailed and enriched work yet entitled NO THANK YOU. She has a lot of important stuff to say, and the world would benefit from taking the time to listen to her. When the time came, she lasered in and made a bold, thematic album with a clear arc—a shoo-in for the coveted Mercury Prize, which she picked up in October.
