Alongside producer and collaborator PRGRSHN - who has written for likes of Yungen, Krept n Konan and Mahalia, Rukhsana has been busy in the studio putting the finishing touches together for her debut album. Rukhsana makes music regardless of genre limitations or commercial pressures. When she’s in the studio, she’s not thinking about writing a song for her record. She’s thinking about writing a song – end of story. “ Just leave yourself in the music, do what’s real to you and you’ll get there ,” she says. “ The music will do what it needs to do .”
Having already garnered support from her peers, including the likes of Wretch 32, Avelino, WSTRN and Jacob Banks, Rukhsana Merrise is certainly one to watch out for in 2018.
