WELCOME TO WONDERLAND! LITTLE SIMZ IS ONE OF SIX COVERS FOR BEAT 21

Right then, cover FIVE of SIX. Nearly there you guys! Celebrating the fact that we can do what the fuck we like with our mag, we’re doing six covers of people we love and who we feel have something exciting to say. With that in mind, the next cover is Little Simz. Read on please.

In her 23 years on this earth, Simbi Ajikawo, aka Little Simz, has torn up the music rulebook, sellotaped it back together in a different order and then popped it in a blender. Over the course of four mixtapes, a handful of EPs and two albums – including last year’s Stillness In Wonderland – she’s managed to showcase her ridiculous talent without compromising an inch. She’s also not afraid to call out people when they’re being dickheads.

Shot in London by Will Robson-Scott, it’s The Rebel:

Nice, right? Soooo nice.

The chat was done by Kieran Yates, who is equally amazing, and it will be online real soon.

We’re not going to beat around the bush and try and keep things mysterious, the other people in the issue are as follows (it’s six covers featuring people we love and respect, no agenda):

Charli XCX

Olly Alexander

Blondie

The xx

Honey Hahs

We’ll be putting the other covers up this week and then peppering your broadband with the interviews after that.
