Lady Leshurr has firmly stamped her place atop the throne, standing deservedly between Dizzee Rascal and Ms Dynamite. “I was like - I wanna be like her”, Leshurr says, of the first time she heard Ms Dynamite. “She’s like the female MC Neat. I didn’t want to be a singer, because I knew I couldn’t sing, but I wanted a melody and a flow”. Not only has the Queen’s Speech series granted Leshurr the level of attention her sharp and quick witted talents warrant, it’s also solidified her in the canon of great British artists. Charming and funny, yet also able to take it up a notch when necessary and stun in a way like no other. As she readies her upcoming album, racking up frequent flyer miles on visits to South Africa, Jamaica, New York and France, the time has come to recognise there’s a new queen of Britain.
