Last year, Simz cancelled her North American tour due to the “huge deficit” it would leave her in financially.
The London rapper was due to head out on a 10-date run in May 2022, with shows scheduled to take place in Portland, San Francisco, Toronto, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles and New York, among other locations.
However, Simz announced that the shows would no longer be going ahead as planned, but assured her US and Canadian fans that she “will be there soon, back bigger and better”.
Back in December, Simz dropped her critically acclaimed surprise album ‘NO THANK YOU’. NME gave the album four stars, saying “‘NO THANK YOU’s quiet, understated release” has “a certain looseness and freedom to the tracks”.
Last month, she released a new documentary, On Stage Off Stage, following the European leg of her recent tour.
The documentary was filmed and directed by Abu Dumbuya and takes the viewer on tour with the artist, mixing both behind-the-scenes access with live tour footage.
With the release of the documentary, Simz has also announced that her fifth studio album will be physically released on June 16 and is available to pre-order now here.
