Following its predecessor, “Drop 6,” and celebrating a decade since the series began in August 2014, “Drop 7” is a collection of seven tracks that blend Simz’s signature reflective lyrics with avant-garde, dancefloor-ready beats from renowned producer Jakwob.

Little Simz stands as a trailblazer in the music industry, earning numerous accolades including BRIT Awards, MOBOs, and an Ivor Novello Award. Her work spans mixtapes, EPs, and five critically lauded albums that narrate her personal journey and resonate with her generation. The 2021 Mercury Music Prize-winning album, “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert,” propelled Simz into new heights, securing a top 5 spot on the Official Album Chart. This was followed by the unexpected release of “NO THANK YOU” in 2022, an album that took a bold, introspective turn. In 2023, Simz further established her versatility as an acclaimed actor in the final series of the Netflix drama “Top Boy,” while also delivering her most extensive live performances across the UK, Europe, and the US, met with universal acclaim. With the release of “Drop 7,” Little Simz continues to push boundaries and set new standards in her career.
