Little Simz: 101 FM (Video)

Another great joint from Little Simz’s recent third album, which has emerged as arguably her strongest work to date. 101 FM is a reflective song about Simz’s early days in the flats, all framed within the nostalgic setting of a pirate radio station.

No more details on the album release yet, but I would guess we will see its arrival in early 2019.
