Little Simz Wins 2022 Mercury Prize Award

For her album, ‘Sometimes I Might be Introvert.’

Little Simz is the winner of this year’s Mercury Prize Award, for her album Sometimes I Might be Introvert.

Hosted by Lauren Laverne and guest presenter Jamz Supernova, the awards show took place at London’s Eventim Apollo and saw guests treated to a night of performances from 11 of 2022’s shortlisted artists. From Joy Crookes and Kojey Radical to Nova Twins, Sam Fender and Little Simz, the performances also included a filmed live performance from Harry Styles.

Simz was awarded the prize by this year’s judging panel who said, “In a year that has, to put it mildly, presented rather a lot of challenges, British and Irish music has thrived more than ever. That made it extremely hard for the judges to choose an overall winner from the 12 ‘Albums of the Year’ on the 2022 Mercury Prize with FREE NOW shortlist, simply because all of them had so much to offer. ”

They added “When it came down to it, the judges were so impressed by Sometimes I Might Be Introvert by Little Simz that everyone could get behind it. This accomplished and complex yet entirely accessible album is the work of someone striving constantly to push herself. It deals with themes both personal and political while putting them against music that is as sophisticated as it is varied. The Mercury Prize is all about shining a light on albums of lasting value and real artistry. Sometimes I Might Be Introvert has both.”

The artist posted on Instagram with a caption that read, “Incredibly grateful and humbled. Mad journey. Thank you for the love, still processing so I don’t have many words but from the bottom of my heart thank you.”
