Little Simz is ending 2022 with a bang: coinciding with the release of their new album this past weekend No thank you, Today the British-Nigerian rapper shared an 11-minute short film of the same name. It consists of five songs from the album, including “Heart on Fire”, “X”, “Silhouette”, “Sideways” and “Broken”.
Simz offers some wise words before playing the video: “Emotion is energy in motion,” text reading across the screen in its first seconds, just as the music is about to start. “Respect your truth and your feelings. Eliminate fear. Boundaries matter.”
Visually, the Gabriel Moses-directed video is the equal of a feature film noir arthouse, as Little Sims raps in a range of settings: alongside some contemporary dancers, in the driver’s seat of a car on a rainy night, in a puddle of water, staring at herself In the mirror at a lavish palace ceremony. No thank you Filmed in Paris outside the Château de Melmont, the city’s timeless and subtly sad beauty finds its way to the screen.
