Little Simz Addresses Social Change In Her “Gratitude” Video

Music

Following much of her success gained from the critically acclaimed debut album, A Curious Tale Of Trials + Persons, Little Simz has continued the conversation releasing a thought-provoking and socially aware visual for her latest single, “Gratitude,” featuring The Hics.

The Jeremy Cole-directed video is yet another powerful video the two have collaborated on. Filmed and shot in Capetown, South Africa, the video effortlessly captures the landscape as well as actual clips from the recent #FeesMustFall protests led by activist Imraan Christian.
