The lyricist addresses predatory boys and music labels:

You can never gas me, I've heard way too many lies/ So please don't say to impress me That shit don't impress me/ Labels and boys are the same, they both just want to undress me.

She debuted the loosie-single in Brooklyn last Friday and it has finally made it's way to her Soundcloud. Of the new release, she told Fader:

"Lane Switch is an update on where I am in life right now and what space I'm in, I've been on the road for the longest time and want to update my listeners on how I finding everything," she said over email. "Giving my supporters new music is my way of staying creative and updating you guys while traveling, growing and evolving."

With these recent releases, we no longer want to have the conversation about women being MIA as hip hop MCs. Little Simz is a clear message that the girls are coming out to play and their bringing that heat with them.
