BIRMINGHAM-BORN rapper Lady Leshurr continued her royal reign overseas following her debut show in New York.
The 27-year-old Queen’s Speech star said she was “brought to tears” after her performance in the city’s Gramercy Theatre.
“No one understands how amazing tonight was,” the award-winning rapper wrote on Instagram. “My first debut show in NYC & I was 60 tickets away from selling it out.. I never expected THAT many people to even come out.”
Lady Leshurr said she the achievement meant even more coming “from where I’m from”.
“[In] Birmingham where people take our accent for a joke. To be one of the leading ladies of Brum representing it everywhere I go and now performing in America puts a smile on my face.
“I hope I did Birmingham proud tonight because the turnout was amazing! Thank you to every single person who bought a ticket. I’m actually so emotional right now. Words can’t explain man.”
And Lady Leshurr, who recently released the highly-anticipated Queen’s Speech 5 freestyle, will be back stateside in March to perform at the five-day festival SXSW Festival.
It’s been a good year for the young star who was the soundtrack to designer Alexander Wang’s fashion show during New York Fashion Week.
And her Queen’s Speech 4 freestyle made it to the top of the MTV Base charts.
