The New Lady Leshurr Video Is Fire Emojis, Even If Wiley Doesn't Turn Up
In her latest track and visual, Leshurr shades the has-beens with savage disregard.
It's been five years since Birmingham MC Lady Leshurr burst onto the scene with a Guardian profile proclaiming her the UK's answer to Nicki Minaj, and since then she's seen a slow burning kind of success. The third of her "Queen's Speech" freestyles only went viral in 2015, despite regular main stage festival slots and critical love-ins.
But finally she's hitting the peaks, and the video for her latest track "Where Are You Now?"—the first cut from long-awaited debut album Queen of the Scene—sees her shade all the wasteman and has-beens that have littered her journey so far, whilst sat astride a throne in a black polystyrene crown. It also features the king himself, Wiley, but—in the least surprising surprise since the boat sank at the end of Titanic—he doesn't actually appear in the video.
