Little Simz's secret show at 76 Dean Street, London
The British rapper celebrated the launch of her fourth studio album to a packed guest list of friends, family, and fellow artists
By Ollie Horne
British rapper Little Simz held an intimate private album launch party at 76 Dean Street in London on Friday night. Friends, family and fellow artists – including Soho House members Mahalia, Stormzy and Joy Crookes – gathered to celebrate the release of Simz’s fourth studio album, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert, which, in her own words, is her strongest studio album to date.
Guests sipped on cocktails named after tracks on the album including ‘The Garden’ and 'Point and Kill’, and tucked into the House's famous dirty burgers. There were free books on offer too, carefully selected by Simz, that included novels by Bernardine Evaristo and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. As the night approached 11pm, Simz took the mic to perform some of the strongest songs on the album, including 'Woman' and 'Rollin Stone', and called upon collaborator and Nigerian artist Obongjayer to help her sing the Afrobeat-infused anthem 'Point and Kill', which he features on. 'Let's get drunk and party!' he shouted to guests, and they obliged, dancing until the early hours of the next morning.
