In the music industry, artists have a tendency of releasing short films that play more like a mashup of various music videos than an actual work of cinema. Little Simz, whose fourth studio album Sometimes I Might Be Introvert is one of the essential Hip-Hop albums of 2021, beats that stigma by releasing I Love You, I Hate You – The Film, a real-deal short film inspired by her critically acclaimed track “I Love You, I Hate You.”
Having already landed roles in Netflix’s Top Boy and Sony’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Little Simz proved once again that her skills stretch far beyond the realm of music. According to Complex, Simz takes on the lead role of Sage, a young writer dealing with trauma and abandonment, in the 22-minute short film, and the Sam Pilling-directed project also features C.J. Beckford, Sonia Ajuwa, and Shaniqua Okwok in supporting roles.
