Review: LITTLE SIMZ – “Drop 7”


“Drop 7” is the return of Little Simz. Not a real album but an EP which is the follow up to “Drop 6” of 2020 and which in fact celebrates the tenth anniversary of the “Drop” series which began in 2014.

Once again Simbiatu Abisola Abiola Ajikawo (the real name of the London rapper) amazes with its variety and continuous stylistic evolution.

Seven tracks within which Little Simz manages to skillfully weave her brand of introspective lyricism, supported by the most experimental beats of her career, created by the acclaimed producer Jakwob, ranging from clubbing, to reggaeton, from afro-beat to soul .

Little Simz’s talent ranges and envelops and this “Drop 7” confirms the sonic style and quality that have led her to collect worldwide awards and recognition.

The only sore point… it’s a shame it doesn’t last so long. After 15 minutes our mouths were watering!!!

SCORE: Score 7.25


Mood Swings – Torch – Far Away


Nothing! To listen and listen again in one go!
