Little Simz releases her reflective new single BACKSEAT, the first release of 2017 from the award-winning North London born rapper
Which follows her critically acclaimed sophomore studio album, ‘Stillness in Wonderland‘, released on Dec. 16, 2016.
Revealed moments ago, the honest new track was produced by Astronote (who produced several tracks on Simz’s ‘Stillness In Wonderland’ LP) with additional vocals by fast rising R&B vocalists Ella Mai + Vanjess, and was accompanied by a short message from the 23 year old musician:
“I don’t talk or say too much + since the beginning my music has been my way of communicating with the supporters + people who really care about me + my art. BACKSEAT is an update for the people. It’s all in the lyrics. Thank you for listening.” – Little Simz.
Bonus: Ahead of her SOLD OUT mini festival ‘Welcome To Wonderland: The Experience’ Little Simz sat down with one of the UK’s most accomplished emcees, Kano, for a special no-holds-barred conversation for VEVO’s BACKSTAGE series. Watch it HERE.
