The film will be Simz’s first acting role since appearing as herself in the recent Marvel film Venom: Let There Be Carnage. In 2019, she starred as Shelley in the most recent season of Top Boy.

In a five-star review of Simz’s ‘Sometimes I Might Be Introvert’, NME‘s Dhruva Balram wrote: “Little Simz has ferocious energy on this album, a relentlessness that she must get everything in her head out now. It feels like she is closing the volume to a book, the last chapter in it written and filed.

“With ‘Sometimes I Might Be Introvert’, Little Simz has crafted a near-perfect album that will exist as a marker for future generations to try and attain; it’s not hyperbole to suggest that this canonises her work forever, elating her to be one of the greats.”
