Shura teams up with Ivy Sole on new single 'elevator girl'.
Shura's wonderful 'forevher' was one of 2019's most honest pop statements, and was followed by some sterling live shows.
Playing London's historic Roundhouse venue, the songwriter then went back into the studio to find fresh focus.
New single 'elevator girl' is her first step beyond the margins of 'forevher', and it finds Shura partnering with Ivy Sole.
The Philadelphia rapper adds a different energy to Shura's potent pop mixture, their voices intermingling on this queer duet.
"elevator girl' is partly inspired by the time I had to get an elevator to my hotel room on the 22nd floor with a first date who I'd only just met in the lobby. When we entered there were other people already in the elevator so we stayed silent because it felt weird to address the awkwardness in front of strangers. But it's also about the elation of a first date – the fact that it can make you feel kind of high without drugs."
"I'm stoked to have Ivy Sole contribute a verse because I've been a big fan ever since I first heard 'Dream Girl'. I reached out over Instagram, we linked up in Brooklyn over coffee at The Lot Radio, and decided it would be fun to work on this together."
