After last year’s release of her sophomore album ‘forevher’, Shura is revealing her first new piece of music since. Teaming up with Philadelphia rapper Ivy Sole, she’s unveiled the R&B-tinged newbie ‘elevator girl’.
“‘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,” Shura explains. “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.”
