Little Simz has released a new short film called ‘I Love You, I Hate You’ – it’s name taken from a track on her latest album, ‘Sometimes I Might Be Introvert’.

“‘I Love You, I Hate You’ is the story of abandonment”, she says. “How trauma can affect us in our adult lives if never confronted. I wanted to make this film because I feel it’s a universal story that many people can relate to”.

Directed by Sam Pilling, the 23 minute film stars the rapper herself, alongside Shaniqua Okwok, CJ Beckford and Sonia Ajuwa. As well as music from Little Simz, it also features tracks by Sault, Nala Sinephro and Miraa May.

It was made in partnership with WeTransfer’s digital arts platform WePresent. Says Little Simz of that collaboration: “It’s been incredible to work with a partner like WePresent, who are so invested in telling stories like this. They understood and trusted my vision from the jump and had my back to create the film I set out to make”.
